What is Nexium?
Nexium is a medicine that is used to reduce the amount of acid that is created in the stomach. It is a drug that belongs to a group called proton pump inhibitors and is most commonly used to treat conditions that involve excess stomach acid such as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
It is also effective in preventing gastric ulcers caused by infections, as well as promoting healing of esophagus damage caused by stomach acid. It is not used for the symptoms, or for the immediate relief, of heartburn.
Nexium can also be found under its generic name of esomeprazole; it is only possible to buy Nexium with a doctor’s prescription.
Make sure that you are not allergic to esomeprazole, benzimidazloe, mebendazloe (Vermox) or albendazole (Albenza) before taking Nexium. Inform your doctor of any liver diseases before taking this medication.
It is important to tell your doctor if you have any problems with your bones, such as osteopenia, which is a low bone mineral density, or any problems with osteoporosis. Taking this medication for long periods of time or in high doses may increase the risk of fractures in your wrist, spine or hip. The possibility of bone fractures also increases with patients who are over 50. It is not clear if Nexium is the true cause of this increased risk.
You should not consume Nexium if you suffer allergic reactions to benzimidazole, esomeprazole or any other medication such as mebendazole (Vermox) or albendazole (Albenza). If you suffer from severe liver disease, your doctor may need to provide a special dose adjustment or test for you.
Nexium is not prescribed for immediate heartburn relief. If you feel any chest pain, heavy feeling or a pain that feels like it is spreading to your shoulder or arm, or if you experience sweating, nausea or an overall ill feeling, you should seek emergency medical attention at once. The first symptoms of a heart attack are often confused with heartburn.
It is important that you take your Nexium medication for the full duration of time prescribed. It is normal to feel your condition improve before you finish the medication. Do not adjust or change the medication schedule or dose recommended by your doctor. Depending on your condition, you may be treated with a combination of antibiotics and Nexium.
Nexium is a category B drug. It is not expected to cause injury to an unborn child. It is still important to tell your doctor if you are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant while you are taking Nexium. If you are breast-feeding your baby, it is important to tell your doctor.
It is not known if Nexium can cause harm to a nursing child or if the drug passes into breast milk. If you are pregnant and want to continue taking Nexium, an option to discuss with your doctor is taking esomeprazole delayed-release capsules. However, if you choose the delayed-released capsules, it is not recommended that you breast-feed during this time.
