Important Note about prescription drugs and 'without prescription'
Uses of Nexium
Nexium is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) used to treat heartburn, or gastroesophageal
reflux. It may be used in combination with two antibiotics to treat Helicobacter pylori
(H. pylori) infection and duodenal ulcers. By reducing acid production in the stomach,
NEXIUM reduces the chance of acid backing up into the esophagus and causing reflux
symptoms. Nexium is indicated for the short-term treatment (4 to 8 weeks) in the healing
and symptomatic resolution of diagnostically confirmed erosive esophagitis. For those
patients who have not healed after 4-8 weeks of treatment, an additional 4-8-week
course of Nexium may be considered. Nexium is also indicated for treatment of heartburn
and other symptoms associated with GERD. It may also be used to treat other conditions
as determined by your doctor.

Esomeprazole inhibits gastric acid secretion. Therefore, esomeprazole may interfere with
the absorption of drugs where gastric pH is an important determinant of bioavailability
(eg, ketoconazole, iron salts and digoxin).

drowsiness, blurred vision, tachycardia, nausea, diaphoresis, flushing, headache and
dry mouth. Nexium is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any
