can you drink alcohol whilst taking omeprazole?
i take 20mg of omeprazole twice a day and was just wondering if i can drink alcohol because it doesnt say anything on the information that comes with it ??

If it doesn’t say, it typically doesn’t matter. I don’t see why a proton pump inhibitor would have an impact from alcohol, although digestion of it may be inhibited by the Omeprazole (after all, you need stomach acid to digest your food). However, I would ask your doctor or pharmacist to be on the safe side… better to be safe than sorry. Good luck and I hope I helped!

Yes you can, there is no interaction between PPIs and alcohol.

FYI..if there is a direct interaction, it will always state it on the patient information leaflet that comes with your drug.
