I have hepatitis C and just started Epclusa. My doctor told me to take Prilosec for acid reflux four hours after taking Epclusa. My pharmacist said I shouldn’t take Prilosec with Epclusa. Who is right?

I'm been on epclusa for 50 days and every since day 3 or 4 bad heartburn really bad I noticed when I take the epclusa every morning and then I guess from me working moving around and stuff I wouldn't get heartburn but if I take it right after I eat it would give me severe heartburn so maybe try taking it first thing in the morning without food wait a couple hours and then eating and see if you still get it

I will be taking Epiclusa I soon as it arrives. I have taken some form of AcipHex or Nexium the last 15 years. When I didn’t take it for for five days I’m in pain. I was informed today at my doctors office that I should stop taking my AcipHex. Not sure how well that’s going to work as far as pain goes. And my doctor just went out for cancer surgery. Her nurse is the one that said the pharmacy said I should not take any form of Meds for Gerds. I don’t know what to do. how much pain can I take

Hello There If there is a issue with Epclusa and antacids maybe Epclusa is the wrong drug why would a doctor recommend Epclusa for someone that is forced to take Losec? How much less of the drug is absorbed when using antacids? I wonder if treatment can fail because of Losec? Thank you
