Well : Prilosec 20 mg over-the-counter is equal to pantoprozql 40 mg .For specific diagnosis and treatment see a primary care doctor in person or Healthtap visit

Yes: Omeprazole, lansoprazole, and esomeprazole are all available as OTC, which are in the same drug class as Protonix (pantoprazole). They will bring about the similar effect as Protonix (pantoprazole). For example, esomeprazole (Nexium) 20 mg once daily can help.
