ask the dr and the pharmacist if the formulation is the same. many times OTC is diff. amounts of meds in them. also sometimes (same with mirilax- behind the counter and otc) they are the same, but are expensive! so people with insurance can get an Rx filled and get more then they would at the same price otc.
Check with your
doctor first!
