Nexium (Esomeprazole) Medication Uses

Chemical Name ESOMEPRAZOLE (ess-oh-MEP-ra-zole)

Nexium CANNOT be split in half.

Medication is a prescription medication that is used for several conditions.
It is classified as medication called proton pump inhibitors.
Primarily, NEXIUM is used to treat the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), allows the esophagus to heal, and prevent further damage to the esophagus.
It may also be used to treat other conditions involving excessive stomach acid such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Additionally, Medication may also be prescribed along with other medications to prevent stomach ulcers. Its key purpose is to decrease the amount of acid produced by the stomach.
It promotes healing of erosive esophagitis, preventing damage to your esophagus caused by stomach acid.
Other physicians may prescribe NEXIUM to prevent gastric ulcer caused by infection with helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), or by the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Medication is not for immediate relief of heartburn symptoms.


NEXIUM should be used exactly as prescribed by your physician. Do not take in excess amounts, or take it for longer than recommended.
This medication is usually prescribed for only 4-8 weeks, although your physician may recommend a second treatment if needed.

NEXIUM should be ingested at least one hour before a meal with a full glass of water.
The tablet should be swallowed whole – do not crush, break, or open the tablet. The tablet is formed to release the medication slowly in the body. Tampering with the tablet may affect its performance.

Continue taking Medication  regularly to get optimal results, even though your symptoms may improve before you have finished your cycle of medication.


Consult your physician before you start taking NEXIUM – it may not be the right medication for you.
Inform your physician of any medications that you are taking, including prescription, non-prescription and/or herbal supplements.
You may need a dose adjustment or special tests during treatment if you:

  • are allergic to this Medication, esomeprazole or to any other benzimidazole medication
  • have liver disease
  • have any sort of heart disease
  • have low levels of magnesium in your blood
  • are pregnant or planning to become pregnant
  • are breast-feeding
  • have osteoporosis or osteopenia

Taking a proton pump inhibitor may increase your risk of bone fracture in the hip, wrist, or spine.
This effect has occurred mostly in patients aged 50+ who have taken the medication for an extended time period, or at high doses.
