Nexium OTC is the exact same drug formula, as Nexium Prescription, except for the strength. The OTC is limited to 20 mg/capsule, while the prescription dose can vary, but is usually 40 mg. Two OTCs taken as prescribed for one 40 mg script, will work, but always check with your physician.
I don't believe they are, there are many levels a doc can prescribe that you can't otc
