Hello when is the best time to take Omeprazole when on Imatinib. I take my Imatinib with breakfast.

Cheers Keith

The NHS recommends you take it first thing in the morning (on once a day schedule). It can be taken on a full or empty stomach. It doesn’t interact with imatinib, so you can choose when to take your imatinib, but if breakfast works for you I’d keep on doing that.


I took omeprazole for a few months while on Imatinib. I was surprised at how it helped bring my number down real low. I had my lowest reading on Imatinib while on omeprazole. My number went back up after I stopped. I never got as low again while on Imatinib. I have since changed to another TKI.
