The Difference Between Omeprazole Dr And Cap 20mg
2 Replies RSS
I was prescribed Omeprazole dr, 20 mg. my friend takes the same Omeprazole 20 mg, but, it's not dr. she wants to give me what she has left being she was taken off this med. Can I take hers, expir. date is still valid. thank you ## The difference is that the DR stands for delayed release, which means that when you take it, it is designed to slowly release in your body over a period of time.

It isn't that there would be harm to you, since it's the same substance, but it just doesn't work the same. Are there any othe...
