Nexium is used to treat acid reflux and similar conditions including gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and heartburn. The medication helps prevent symptoms by inhibiting the activity of certain stomach lining cells that produce acid. 

With a reduction in stomach acid production, this decreases the amount of acid refluxing upwards through the respiratory tract. Nexium works best when taken regularly in a daily dose. 

Nexium is the branded version of the generic esomeprazole, containing the same strength and form. This medicine is part of a group of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) used to treat acid reflux and similar conditions.

  • How Do You Take a PPI?

  • How Long Will I Have to Keep Taking PPIs?

    PPIs are generally supposed to be taken for two to eight weeks, depending on the condition being treated.

  • Can I drink alcohol?

    Drinking alcohol while taking PPIs can result in increased side effects and worsening of acid reflux.

  • What time of day to take Nexium?

    Nexium can be taken at any time in the day, as long as it is taken consistently at the same time each day. You should take Nexium at least one hour before a meal, so this medication is usually taken before breakfast, lunchtime or in the evening.
