Can use Dexilant in the morning/extra strength Gaviscon later in the day

Detailed Answer:

Dexilant is a PPIs with generic name "Lansoprazole". It is used early in the morning (prior to eating).

Extra strength Gaviscon is an antacid and is used after meal during/later in the day.

So, you can use Dexilant in the morning, and Gaviscon later in the day.
