Hello i,m new to board so if anyone has come up with this question before i,m sorry but i do need some advice . 
  Any way like a lot of you i have GERD and also have a hiatal hernia that gives me me fits , i,ve been on nexium for over a year and was considering surgery when a friend told me about protonix my gi doctor wouldn,t even talk to me about any other medicine other than nexium he said it was the strongest medicine known to man (quote) . So i went to a local clinic and told the doctor that i had a friend on protonix that was having good luck with it he gave me a precription for 6 months .
  I have been taking it for 5 day,s and it,s working i,m taking 40mg in the morning i was taking the nexium 40mg twice a day . I have lot,s of nexium left .
  Do you think i would be doing wrong bu taking the protonix in morning and taking nexium at night ?
  Please tell me what you think .

Hi curdog and welcome to HW.. I am glad you found us.. Since both are ppi's i would either talk to my dr or pharmacist before taking both just to be on the safe side..
