A member asked:

Does taking a proton pump inhibitor like nexium (esomeprazole) (40 mg day) greatly reduce the chance of bleeding from taking asprin daily?

2 doctors weighed in across 2 answers

Yes: Nexium (esomeprazole) does reduce this risk significantly when taken daily. I'll assume you have had an EGD to confirm/deny the presence of an ulcer...
