Brief Answer: Pantoprazole is better Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Omeprazole is a old drug of the PPI class of drugs. The efficacy of the drug is less compared to other drugs of the class like Pantoprazole. You can take Pantoprazole instead of Omeprazole. For any PPi to show response has to be taking for a minimum of 15 days . You can take it for 15 days or more but less than for a month. Regards,
