Omeprazole is effective.
I take one a day to counteract the gastric discomfort which is a side effect of some of the meds I have to swallow.

Best to get it on prescription as the over the counter brands like Losec are quite expensive.

I was of the understanding that Losec & Omeprazole were simply the same but with different names and had to be prescribed.

Losec is also available in the EU under other trade names: Antra, Logastric, Losec Forte, Mopral, Omeprazen, Omeprazole

quick fire solution for this.......one or two small tubs of whatever flavour you prefer. I occasionally get acid reflux and yogurt does the trick almost immediately.

Might give this a try when I get home and do the shop!

In NZ you can buy over the counter or have it prescribed. If prescribed then it's the generic brand (cheapest) that is given.
I think if you ask the pharmacist then you can buy the generic brand.
