Product Description

Brand Name: Nexium (20/40mg)

Generic Name: esomeprazole magnesium

Nexium (esomeprazole magnesium) is a proton pump inhibitor that decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach. Nexium is used to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other conditions involving excessive stomach acid such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Essentially the drug works by reducing the amount of stomach acid produced in gastric parietal cells — thus relieving the symptoms of conditions such as heartburn. While this drug was likely created with the pure intention of helping those in pain / discomfort  due to excessive acid reflux, it has since been linked to numerous side-effects which greatly outweigh the potential benefits of the drug.

Nexium may also be given to prevent gastric ulcer caused by infection with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), or by the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Nexium is not for immediate relief of heartburn symptoms.

How should you take Nexium

Take each dose with a full glass (8 ounces) of water. Esomeprazole should be taken at least one hour before a meal. Do not crush, chew, break, or open a delayed-release capsule. Swallow it whole.
