Since the total mg of each capsule is 20.6 mg and it states that it is equivalent to 20.0 mg, I would assume that the magnesium is 0.6mg.

answer 2
Well, it says "20.6mg [of omeprazole magnesium] equivalent to 20mg omeprazole..." so I would assume that makes it .6mg (6 tenths of a milligram) of magnesium...

omeprazole magnesium means that the omeprazole salts have been been binded with magnesium ion. the end result is omeprazole magnesium. this version works better for my severe reflux that plain omeprazole.

Although they're the same price, the milligrams are slightly higher with the magnesium. Therefore, you get more for your buck with the magnesium.

EQ Omeprazole delayed release tablets (20 mg) contain the active ingredient Omeprazole in its "chemical base" or "non-salt" form. Prilosec OTC contains 20.6 mg of Omeprazole magnesium, which is the magnesium salt form of Omeprazole. They have been shown to be bio-equivalent.

Question

can the capsule contents be divided into smaller doses

I take 10 mg omeprazole and used to buy 20 mg capsules in Mexico and repackage them into 10 mg capsules. I tried it with this product but the capsule contains granules and a caplet. Is the active ingredient in the granules or the caplet? Is it OK to cut the caplet in half?

Omeprazole magnesium simply has added magnesium, which apparently helps to neutralize stomach acid, as well as replacing some magnesium, I assume. Omeprazole can rob your body of magnesium. I find that the Omeprazole Magnesium works better for me than plain Omeprazole - it does a better job of taming my stomach acid.
