Is it okay to take Prilosec with Ribavirin and Interferon?

I'm in week 24/48 of triple tx, and my lifelong issue of heartburn is getting worse. Is it okay to take Prilosec with Interferon, Ribavirin, and Paxil?

Thanks. I did end up calling the specialty pharmacist that fills my Rx, and he said the same thing: no drug interaction.

I currently take Pantoprozole, (protonix) 40 mg. I currently am on the triple cocktail, peg/rib/incivek.
No interactions and no side effects. Finished Incivek 2 weeks ago. You are good to go.

Yes. I took Prilosec for sour weeks during triple treatment to combat the horrible indigestion and acid. Off fr four weeks but need to start back because the it's back with a vengeance (acid reflux - which I did NOT have before treatment!).
The Prilosec worked wonders!
