Can Prilosec and Nexium make you nauseous?
OK. so my doctor told me on Tuesday that I have severe acid reflux.
I've been having symptoms for about 6 weeks. Originally I just had just pains, then nausea set in. So I go to the DR and she prescribed Prilosec. Well, all my symptoms have gone away except the nausea. So I went for the Upper Gi Baron exam (or whatever it's called, it wasn't an endoscopy) and that's when she said I had severe acid reflux and prescribed me Nexium.
My question is, could the medication be causing the nausea? The last three days all I've eaten is lettuce, spinach, carrots, brown rice, banana, apple and yogurt and a small portion of eggs and I'm still nauseous.
On a side note, how long does it take for nexium to start working? I'm noticing more side effects than I had with Prilosec, so I was thinking after a week or two, switching back to Prilosec unless I start feeling better.
