Nexium 2012

I have been searching these boards for people's experiences with Nexium for GERD but I have not been able to find any recent posts. And the older posts that I did read were starting to scare me a little lol I was wondering what were some of the side effects that you have experienced and about how long did it take for symptoms to get better? Thanks!

Re: Nexium 2012

Nexium is one choice in the acid reducing PPI's. In my opinion, PPI's work differently for each person. What works best for one might not work well for another. You can find the official side effects if you do an internet search. Based on my years on this board, it seems that the worst side effects are typically digestive or the fact that the PPI just doesn't work for someone.

I've been on all of the PPI's on the market over recent years. For me, the Nexium was the only one that I had side effects with. I had some pretty severe diarrhea. I was on the extreme side for my symptoms though. From what I gather, most people don't experience any side effects.

Re: Nexium 2012

Hi,
I took Nexium for 3-4 weeks. I had no side effects whatsoever.
I decided not to take any PPIs in the future, so cant speak for any other brand.
