Other Options

You may be wondering if there are alternatives to Aciphex Sprinkle that are available in generic form. The answer is yes. The proton pump inhibitors iansoprazole (Prevacid®) and omeprazole (Prilosec®) are both available as generic medications and are approved for use in children as young as 1 year old. Omeprazole and iansoprazole capsules can be opened and sprinkled onto applesauce if needed. 
It is worthwhile to note that the nonprescription versions of iansoprazole (Prevacid® 24HR) and omeprazole (Prilosec® OTC) are only approved for use in adults, not children.
