How long does it take for nexium to work?

I took my second pill last night and I still have a warm sensation in my chest. Does it take a few days to actually feel relief. I just want to feel better. How long does it take for nexium to take effect?

Hi Leelee,

I have heard that it can take 14 to 30 days for full effect. So hang in there and I hope that you feel LOTS LOTS better SOON.

Take care

Re: How long does it take for nexium to work?

I recently switched from aciphex to nexium, and can say it does take a few days to a week. At first, I thought the nexium wasn't working at all, and switched back. But I gave it another go and it did eventually help after several days.
