Nexium and Iron Diffency

Has any one heard of taking Nexium and that causing your Heg, MCV and MCH to decrease? I read it on the Mayo website. You need acid to take in your iron and if you take Nexium it rids your stomache of acid.

Wondered if this has happend to any one.

Re: Nexium and Iron Diffency

It can indeed happne - taking a daily multivitamin with iron would seem like a good insurance policy for anyone taking PPI's long term (if you are taking them for only a few weeks for an accute ulcer, it wouldnt be a problem)

There have been reports in Australia of Vitamin B1 deficiency in people taking daily PPI's long term also.

So.... Take your One a day with Iron every morning!
