Choosing Generic vs Branded Losec

X

Generic medicines contain the same active ingredient and are equally effective and equivalent as the branded products but are available at a lower price. Generic manufacturers have to demonstrate that they are medically identical to the branded product before they can be sold - i.e. they offer the same quality, strength, stability and effectiveness.

Omeprazole

What is Omeprazole?

Omeprazole is a generic drug used to treat certain conditions where there is too much acid in the stomach. It is used to treat gastric and duodenal ulcers, erosive esophagitis, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD is a condition where the acid in the stomach washes back up into the esophagus.
Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). It works by decreasing the amount of acid produced by the stomach.

What is Losec?

Losec is the branded version of Omeprazole. Omeprazole is medically equivalent to Losec but is available at a lower price.

What is Losec MUPS?

Losec MUPs are dispersible tablets which you can dissolve in water if you have difficulty swallowing.

How To Take

One tablet daily. Try to take omeprazole at the same time each day to avoid missing any doses. The usual dose is once a day in the morning.

Alternatives

Alternatives

Antacids taken as required. Antacids are alkali liquids or tablets that can neutralise the stomach acid. A dose may give quick relief. There are many brands, which you can buy. You can also get some on prescription. If you have mild or infrequent bouts of dyspepsia you may find that antacids used as required are all that you need.
