GERD: If your Nexium (esomeprazole) is controlling your Gerd, but you have to stop it temporarily, it is expected that your GERD will become more symptomatic. In that case, going back on the Nexium (esomeprazole) will usually bring the symptoms back under control. You could try adding in antacids such as Tums on an as-needed basis temporarily. Be sure to follow anti-reflux precautions. Good luck.
