PPI: Both of these medications are considered proton pump inhibitors, PPI. They work by inhibiting the acid produced by the stomach and therefore decreasing the risk for developing ulcer. All of the medications are available over-the-counter at a usually lower dose. You may be able to get a prescription for a higher dose than may be cheaper.
