Changed to Ibandronic Acid tablets instead of Denosumab injections

Hi all,

Ive been changed to Ibandronic Acid tablets instead of the Denosumab injections because of Covid19. The side effects look scary and there are more instructions on how to take this. I take omeprazole every morning. Does anyone know if this will interact with or inhibit the absorption of the Ibandronic acid? Am I still safe to take the omeprazole?

I have been taking Ibandronic  Acid for about 3.5years and Lanzoprazole for about two plus other meds and when I was prescribed no mention was made of interactions with other drugs.  I just make sure I take the Lanzoprazole first thing and leave time before other meds as instructed. Double check if you’re worried. All the best
