Pariet Alternative for GERD

I am currently on an on-going treatment for GERD, using Pariet 20mg and 2x Motillium Tablets per day. My medical aid has rejected the Pariet for chronic benefits, and suggest the use of Omeprazole. My question - are the 2 medicines the same? Nexium or Lanzor does not do the trick.

Dear Altie
Pariet and Omeprazole belong to the same class of drugs, so try the Omeprazole, it should work
