I take Prilosec 2x a day. In the AM with hot coffee. Is that OK?

My doctor put me on Prilosec 2 x a day for ulcers & reflux.
I take one when I get up at 7:30 am with my cup of coffee and one at 7:30 pm an hour after dinner.
I have done so for a year and the prilosec is working fine.
I know i'd be better off with no coffee in my diet, but that is not going to happen. Shocked
The only question is, does it hurt anything to take it with hot coffee?
At night I take it with a 1/2 a cup of 2% milk.

I also take prilosec twice a day and my doctor said to take it with a full glass of water. Then I usually wait a half an hour before I eat or drink anything. That's the most effective for me anyway.
