My ENT said to take it about 1 hour before your meal...although sometimes I forget and take it right before.

Re: nexium, before or after meal??

My husband takes his before dinner. I take mine an hour before bedtime, because my reflux is the worst when I lie down to sleep. Before dinner and Breakfast is the normally prescribed method.

Sincerely,
MG

Re: nexium, before or after meal??

I usually take mine before eating.. Depending on what I'm eating. If I'm about to eat a big plate of spaghetti then yes, I take it before hand. But if it's something mild I just take it right before I go to bed so I don't wake up from it.
