You can buy Nexium 40mg tablets online from euroClinix if you have been prescribed this treatment by your doctor. We also offer the generic form, esomeprazole.
The active ingredient in Nexium is called esomeprazole. Esomeprazole, which belongs to a group of medications called proton pump inhibitors, works by inhibiting the acid-producing portion of cells in the stomach, called proton pumps.
This decreases the amount of acid your stomach makes, preventing an overflow of stomach acid into the oesophagus and reducing uncomfortable symptoms like heartburn and chest pain.
After 2 to 3 days, most people notice their symptoms have started to improve, but in some cases it can take up to four weeks to begin working.
You should take this treatment exactly as your doctor has directed.
Nexium and esomeprazole are available from euroClinix in the form of 40mg tablets. The number of tablets you take and how long you take them for depends on your condition and medical history.
