Maybe not acid: Nexium (esomeprazole) is a ppi, potent minimizer of acid production in the stomach. Several other ppis on market-all roughly equivalent, can take days some respond better to one than another. Make sure the problem is truly acid related, or not.

I have been taking Nexium (esomeprazole) for GERD and it isn't working anymore is there something that would work better?
More on GERD: Healthtap is full of answers regarding GERD's causes, variations, and approaches for prevention. Please type "GERD" in the search box, and I think you'll find all the responses you could want! However, be sure of your diagnosis--there are a number of conditions that don't involve acid reflux but mimick GERD, and therefore don't respond to acid blockers. ...Read more

Taken Nexium, (esomeprazole) generic Nexium, (esomeprazole) and Protonix which cause drowsiness. Would it be worth taking Prevacid or Prilosec? Will tired feeling go away with time
Doubtful: None of the actions of any of these drugs would have anything to do with drowsiness. That is a very uncommon side effect of any of them. BUT Prilosec is well known to gum up the liver's ability to get other drugs out of you including all sedatives including alcohol.... so .. that one is doubly out. Otherwise, while I cannot explain why these drugs do that on you, the entire group is similar ...Read more
Can take zantac (ranitidine) or something else while trying to wean off prilosec? Prilosec not helping at all anymore. Have gerd & stomach polyps recent upper endo
Yes: Zantac (ranitidine) has a totally different mechanism of action than Prilosec. It is safe to take up to 150 mg twice a day. Starting a lower dose of 150 mg once a day may be advisable and if this is not enough to control your symptoms, you may increase it to 150 mg twice a day. It is important to make sure that you are not infected with H.pylori. H.pylori requires specific treatment. ...Read more
What is a good pill for gastritis I have tried omeprazole, Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) and prevacid they help but not enough help?
Gastritis from Diclofenac I've been given omerprazole to continue with Prednisolone/Gabapentin. Does omerprazole make it harder to digest food?Bloated
Why is omeprazole so poor in controlling excess stomach acid compared to esomeprazole? I find even OTC ranitidine and cimetidine work better. Just me?
Will Nexium (esomeprazole) work in 24 hours like Prilosec ? Prilosec works good but constipates me.which one works faster bec I can't wait 3 days for Nexium (esomeprazole)
No: Both Nexium (esomeprazole) and Prilosec are proton pump inhibitors and very closely related. They take days to weeks to be fully effective. If you need relief in 24 hours you need to take an H2 blocker like Pepcid. If your doctor thinks you need.long term proton pump inhibitor to prevent GERD complications you should discuss with him and not treat yourself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Prilosec isn't working well for my acid reflux is there another medicine that would work better ?
Maybe: You can take the medication twice a day if necessary. You should also be evaluated by a GI specialist to see if you have a bacteria called h. Pylori that is worsening your reflux. This maybe treated with antibiotics if necessary. If these medications do not work and you have persistent reflux, surgical options are available. ...Read more
Can you take zantac (ranitidine) while taking uribel? I know it says not to take antacids like tums, Mylanta as it will interfere. How Is zantac (ranitidine) different?
I just started taking protonix (pantoprazole) for gerd. Since it may take several days for it to work, can I take Pepcid or Zantac too until it does work?
Careful evaluation: If antidepressants are not working the first thing to do is to make sure that you are not dealing with one of the kinds of depression that doesn't respond to antidepressants (for instance, paranoid depression, or bipolar depression, etcetera). Also you want to be absolutely sure that there is not a medical disease that is causing or worsening your symptoms. ...Read more
