LOSEC 10mg 7tabs
Losec is a widely respected brand name for Omeprazole - an effective treatment for reflux. This was previously only available on prescription but has now become available directly from the Pharamcist. Packs of 7 or 14 tablets can be bought "over the counter" after discussion with your pharmacist.
The 10mg tablet is a lower dose than usually prescribed but is an effective treatment for milder symptoms. The effect for most people will be better than Ranitidine or Gaviscon (also available directly from the Pharmacy) although if the symptoms are infrequent - say once a week or less then Ranitidine as required might be the best option. It is certainly an advance to now have a range of products available without a prescription. For frequent and troublesome symptoms you should go directly to your doctor.
Each tablet contains:
