Question Has anybody tried Nexium for GERD??

A friend told me that she started taking Nexium 6 months ago and has managed to control the GERD symptoms amazingly well. Anybody else out there that has tried it?? I am desperate to be able to eat tomatoes and mangoes again!!

I took Nexium for over 2 years. They work fine at first then you'll start chasing them with zantac and pepcid. My advice would be not to mess with them try to find a homeopathic remedy for your gerd
