What is Nexium?

Nexium is a medication that reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach.

It provides symptomatic relief from a number of conditions, like:

  • gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD)
  • peptic ulcers
  • Zollinger-Ellison syndrome

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.

How does Nexium work?

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.

How long does Nexium take to work?

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.

How do I take Nexium?

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.

They can be taken at any time of day, with or without food. You should swallow your tablets whole with a glass of water. Do not chew or crush the tablets, as it will affect how well the medication works.

If you have trouble swallowing the tablets, put them into a glass of water, and stir, then drink the water.

Read the patient leaflet for more information on how to take this medication.

Can I take Nexium every day?

It depends on your condition. Some people are prescribed a daily dose, while others may be advised to take Nexium only when they experience symptoms. When taken over the counter, it is intended as a short-term treatment.

On prescription, the recommended treatment length for conditions like gastro-oesophageal reflux disease are usually weeks or months, but depending on your condition, your doctor may advise you to take it for years.

You should always follow your doctor’s advice. If you think you might need to change the dose or frequency of your medication, ask your GP for advice.

What are the possible side effects of Nexium?

All medications carry the risk of side effects, although not everybody will experience them.

The most common side effects include:

  • headache
  • stomach pain
  • diarrhoea
  • constipation
  • flatulence
  • nausea
  • vomiting

More serious side effects include:

  • sudden wheezing, rash or fainting
  • skin redness and severe blisters
  • yellow skin, dark urine, and tiredness

If you notice any of these side effects, you should stop taking this medication and seek immediate medical help, as they may be a sign of something more serious.

Read the prescription information leaflet for a complete list of side effects.

What precautions should I take?

You can buy Nexium online from euroClinix if you have a current prescription from your doctor.

Nexium may interact with other medications. It is important that you inform your doctor of all medications and supplements you are currently taking, even if they are not prescribed.

You should not take Nexium if you:

  • have an allergy to any of the ingredients in this medication
  • have an allergy to other proton pump inhibitors
  • are taking a medication containing nelfinavir

Before taking Nexium, tell your doctor if you:

  • have severe liver problems
  • have severe kidney problems
  • have previously had an adverse skin reaction to a medication that reduces stomach acid
  • need to have an endoscopy
  • have osteoporosis

Tell your doctor if you experience fatigue, disorientation, muscle spasms, or increased heart rate, as these may be a sign that you have low magnesium, which has been noted in patients who take proton pump inhibitors for over three months.

It is important that you fill out your consultation accurately so that we can ensure that this is the appropriate treatment for you.
