Lansaprazole and Pantaprazole can both cause repeated diarrhea.
Since your doctor has advised you Clopidogrel, you should continue on this. It has advantages over aspirin.
But if you have acidity and heart burn, you should ask your doctor for other acid blockers like esmaprazole which do not cause such diarrhea.
Meanwhile take a lot of probiotics, this will help your bowel health.

Yes you can, but it might cause some acidity, that is why it was prescribed. However you can take Clopidogrel without the acid blockers, generally acidity is not caused.
