Nexium Side Effects? Please share..

Hi All,

I am on Nexuim 40MG for the past 3 months. Reflux symptoms got better. However, I am getting constant pain in the upper abdominal area, actually just below and around the lower part of the ribs on both sides.

This pain is there all the time and when pressure is applied I can feel the pain more. (Seems like a muscle pain, not unbearable but constant)
The pain exists above the belly button as well.
Also, I get funny noises from inside the stomach once in a while and feel little tingling all over the stomach area sometimes.
I am also feeling weak and tired most of the time.
(Had all the heart related tests done and everything came up normal)
I am not sure if these are the side effects of Nexium.
Please share any thoughts or experiences.

Re: Nexium Side Effects? Please share..

Hi paulk.. look for the thread NEXIUM GOOD OR BAD... there are already a number of insights regarding nexium there.. but some of the side effects people complain about are bloating, nausea and dizziness, weird dreams or sleeping problems.... most people give a week or two before they feel any effects... if the side effects still persist u should consult ur GI, reflux meds vary and its a sort of a compatibility tests before u can find the one thats right for you.
