How to get omeprazole (Losec) online in Canada with Maple.

First, choose your symptoms

Select your symptoms within the Maple app so the doctor can evaluate your symptoms and condition. Enter as much information as possible so that the doctor can make a thorough assessment.

If you don’t have employer / insurer coverage, fees may apply since many of our services aren’t covered by provincial health plans. This is often because of our use of secure messaging and a national network of doctors and nurse practitioners.

Payment may be required, and will include the prescriptions for omeprazole (Losec) if the doctor deems it necessary.

Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is omeprazole (Losec) and how does it work?

Omeprazole is a type of medication known as a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), and is primarily used to treat stomach and esophagus problems related to acidity. It does so by blocking a system in the cells of your stomach, called the proton pump, which decreases the amount of acid your stomach makes. Omeprazole is sold under the brand name Losec.

What are the uses for omeprazole (Losec)?

Omeprazole relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough due to acid reflux. This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus and helps prevent ulcers.

How do you use omeprazole (Losec)?

Omeprazole is available as a capsule, tablet, or liquid solution and should be taken as directed by a doctor. Prescription omeprazole should be taken at least 1 hour before a meal and is usually taken once a day. However, it can be taken twice a day when used with other medications to eliminate H. pylori. Capsule forms come in doses varying from 10mg to 40mg.

What are the side effects and risks of omeprazole (Losec)?

As your body adjusts to the medication, omeprazole may cause:

  • Headache
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Diarrhea, gas, stomach pain

Additionally, some users may experience low magnesium levels, vitamin B-12 deficiency, severe diarrhea, inflammation of the stomach lining, hives, difficulty breathing or swallowing, or irregular, fast, or pounding heartbeat. If any of these severe side effects occur, it is important to speak to a doctor as soon as possible.

Who should not take omeprazole (Losec)?

If you have allergic reactions to esomeprazole, lansoprazole, or pantoprazole, ask your doctor for alternative medication. Omeprazole should not be taken in combination with rilpivirine and rilpivirine-containing antiretrovirals. In addition, people taking warfarin to prevent blood clots should use omeprazole with caution as it can increase their risk of bleeding. During pregnancy or breast-feeding, this medication should only be used when clearly needed. Consult your doctor to discuss the risks and benefits.

If you have any questions about the medication, you can speak to a doctor on Maple by registering for an account.
