Yes, you can: Nexium (esomeprazole) is a proton pump inhibitor. It stops your stomach from producing so much acid. H2 Blocker, Tums also reduces the amount of acid in your stomach. No interaction and safe to use.

Can you take antacid with nexium (esomeprazole)?

Yes...: If treating heartburn/reflux esophagitis, Gaviscon or generic equivalent ("compare with Gaviscon") is a good choice. Gaviscon taken after meals and at bedtime, when combined with a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole (Prilosec) or esomeprazole (Nexium) once daily, can be more effective than either alone.
