Pt driven: There is no definitive answer here. The answer is patient driven. Both these meds are in the same class of PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitors) and are oth at 40mg. Some pateints may feel the nexium (esomeprazole) works better, whereas others feel the protonix does. Depending on what your insurance covers and which one makes you fee better is the one for you. Diet with avoidance of triggers is most important.
