Question about PPI's

I have been on Nexium for some time. Now on Omeprazole due to insurance charging over $900 for three month supply. My doc put me on 40 mg. of Omeprazole twice a day. Isn't this too much??????

Re: Question about PPI's

The right dose of omeprazole is whatever dose of nexium you were taking. The two drugs are almost identical.
