Nexium (Esomeprazole Magnesium) belongs to a group of medicines called proton pump inhibitors. It works on the stomach by reducing the amount of acid produced, which makes it effective at treating GERD (gastro-oesophageal reflux disease), and the symptoms this condition can cause, such as heartburn. Doctors also prescribe it for treating reflux oesophagitis, as it can prevent damage to the foodpipe caused by the backflow of stomach acid, and can allow the foodpipe to heal.

Uses
Nexium (Esomeprazole Magnesium) belongs to a group of medicines called proton pump inhibitors. It works on the stomach by reducing the amount of acid produced, which makes it effective at treating GERD (gastro-oesophageal reflux disease), and the symptoms this condition can cause, such as heartburn. Doctors also prescribe it for treating reflux oesophagitis, as it can prevent damage to the foodpipe caused by the backflow of stomach acid, and can allow the foodpipe to heal.

In some cases, doctors may prescribe this medicine (in combination with antibiotics), to eliminate a certain bacteria in the stomach (helicobacter pylori), and to treat the ulcers associated with this bacteria. Patients who are taking NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) may be told to take this drug, to prevent peptic ulcers, and it may also be used to treat Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Nexium (Esomeprazole Magnesium) comes as 20mg tablets, which you must take exactly as your doctor tells you. Your doctor will tell you how much to take, and will also inform you how long you need to continue treatment for. Adults are usually told to take this medicine for 4 to 8 weeks. In some cases, a second round of treatment may be prescribed, if the doctor deems it necessary. Remember that you should never take more than the amount prescribed to you.
