Consultation on the Prescription Drug List: Omeprazole

Notice to the reader:

The online consultation is now closed. The content found on this page is a snapshot of the live consultation as it was presented to the public and contains the content that was open for submissions during the consultation period.

The purpose of this Notice of Consultation is to provide an opportunity to comment on the proposal to revise the listing for Omeprazole on the Prescription Drug List (PDL). Only the Human PDL is proposed to be revised and not omeprazole for Veterinary use. Health Canada has conducted a scientific review of omeprazole against the set of criteria outlined in section C.01.040.3 of the Food and Drug Regulations.

A question-and-answer document has also been created to explain some of the changes to the new Prescription Drug List and the administrative process for assigning prescription status.
