I have been on Prilosec for about 3 years and I just recently started taking Celebrex. My doctors wanted to be sure I remained on the Prilosec to protect my stomach from the Celebrex. At first I was taking the Celebrex in the mornings with my Prilosec but I found that the Celebrex wore off by the time I went to bed and I would wake up multiple times from being in pain. So I started to take the Celebrex at night, which helps with the pain better. So my question is - if anyone knows, is the Prilosec still "active" in my stomach to properly protect it from the Celebrex?
