Is Famotidine over the counter the same as prescribed famotidine?

Little brother being a brat was just wondering if its the same as prescribed.

    He will soon have to buy them over the counter because they are putting a stop to buying them with a prescription.

    A drug is a drug, and doesn't know if it's prescription or not. Almost always, the difference between prescription and non-prescription is the dosage. Usually higher dosages require a script.

    Why don't you ask a doctor or pharmacist?

    If you have decent insurance, then getting scrip will make it cheaper that OTC.

    Yes. It's the same. Just make sure you pay attention to the mg.

      Do they sell 40mg over the counter? I thought it was only 20mg. 

      Thank you for the response!
