I would avoid taking both Nexium (esomeprazole) and Linzess on the same day if Nexium (esomeprazole) has ever caused you to have diarrhea (a possible side effect). ...Read more

How much Nexium (esomeprazole) can I take in a day? How would you suggest I transition from Prilosec to Nexium (esomeprazole)?

No transition needed: Prilosec is the parent compound for Nexium (esomeprazole). If you tolerate one you will likely tolerate the other. Maximum dosing for Nexium (esomeprazole) is 40mg BID (e.g. one 40mg pill before breakfast and one 40mg pill before dinner). Lack of response to that dose obligates further evaluation--in other words, your problems may be due to oversecretion of acid or not entirely due to acid. ...Read more
