Nexium is also called esomeprazole magnesium. It is in the group of medicines called proton pump inhibitors. So it works by reducing the amount of acid that is produced in the stomach. Hence, Nexium is prescribed for treatment of GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease, zollinger-Ellison syndrome and erosive esophagitis. Nexium can be prescribed when there is need to prevent another gastric ulcer caused by a H.pylori infection. If taken for heartburn, Nexium will not provide immediate relief.
Make sure you take Nexium the way your doctor prescribes it. Don’t exceed the required dose or duration of use.
Take your medicine with a full glass of water, equivalent to 8 ounces. Take it in an empty stomach or at least one hour prior to having a meal. It should not be crushed, or chewed. It is a delayed-release medicine that should be taken whole. However, if you cannot swallow it all, you can open the capsule. Then pour its content into a spoonful of applesauce. Take it right away without chewing. If using an NG (nasogastric) feeding tube, take your capsule as your doctor shows you.
Generally, you will take Nexium for four to eight weeks. If necessary, your physician might recommend a second round of treatment. If you need to use other medicines with Nexium, follow dosing instructions carefully.
Nexium can cause the following side effects:
- Dry mouth
- Abdominal pain
- Mild diarrhea
Inform your doctor if these symptoms worsen. Tell them about severe abdominal pain, kidney damage symptoms, magnesium deficiency signs, or worsening lupus.
Prior to taking Nexium, tell your doctor if you have the following health issues:
- Severe liver disease
- Low levels of magnesium
- An allergy to esomeprazole or related drugs
If you are pregnant now or looking to conceive, let your doctor know. The same should be the case if you are nursing a baby.
