Does it work differently if a GP has presrcibed it, as in not self medicating?

I definitely used infant gaviscon with DS at 6/7 weeks but think I had it on prescription

i used it from 8 weeks till about 6 months but was prescribed by hospital as pharmacist in boots said that we should check first.once they knew we'd had it before, i could then get it from there but was cheaper on prescription.
