Good day doctor, I would like to know if there isn''t an over the counter alternative for Losec?

There is no over the counter alternative as such as you will still need a doctor's prescription, but you can use a much cheaper generic form of Losec such as Sandoz-Omeprazole 10mg capsules. You simply sprinkle the contents of the capsule over a small part of your child's food once a day.
