Olex (oh-LEKS, omeprazole magnesium) is the first "PPI" stomach acid reducer to be available withOUT a prescription.

Health Canada approves an Rx med to go behind the counter or OTC when they consider its use safe without monitoring by a prescriber.

Think of Olex as similar to Rx omeprazole (Losec, etc). Both contain 20 mg of omeprazole and are dosed once daily.
