Erythromycin & clindamycin are known to be especially harsh on gut, former w/nausea & vomiting while latter w/diarrhea (although all are known to cause C diff diarrhea).There's no specific dose of Nexium (esomeprazole) or any other proton pump inhibitor to treat side effects. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

3 mos sore throat in 4 countries. Antibiotics 3 times, non-smoker, Nexium (esomeprazole) 40mg for reflux. Uncomfortable swallowing. 2 ents with no insight.?
Leave it alone: Sometimes it takes a bit longer for the sore throat to settle down. If you have shown it to 2 ents and taken antibiotics, there is nothing further to do except ignore it and be patient. As long as there is no visible growth or ulcers in your throat, you should not worry about it. Do some warm water+ salt, garggles twice daily. If this does not help, take vitmain-c 500 mg for a couple of weeks. ...Read more

It might not help: Nexium (esomeprazole) is not helping with the reflux, it helps to reduce the stomach acidity. If your baby on a liquid diet, it's physiologic for them to have a reflux. Try elevated head of the bed, thickened the food, efficient burping technique. But I would not recommend Nexium (esomeprazole) for a small baby. It mess up with the digestion and promote unhealthy bacterial overgrowth. ...Read more
Probably fine: Linzess (linaclotide) is usually taken on an empty stomach, about 30 minutes before breakfast. If taken soon after a high-fat meal, it can cause diarrhea or more frequent movements. 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

In case of severe acid reflux is it ok to take nexium (esomeprazole) and zentac same day few hours apart?
Once I have acid reflux I need to take nexium (esomeprazole) for. How many days or until the symptom goes off?
1-4 days to benefit: PPI's differ as to duration of action, side effects, tolerance, cost/insurance coverage. All PPI's are equally efficacious, so what options exist after you complete your course of esomeprazole depends on your therapeutic response (e.g. symptom resolution, persistence, recurrence?) as well as the cause of your gastritis (e.g. if H.pylori was found, has it been treated to eradication?) ...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

Have bad reflux for years. Only help is nexium (esomeprazole). Can I take this forever? What are the risks? I have a good diet already.
Liquid antacids work: If your problem genuinely is acid-related (e.g. Reflux, heartburn, peptic ulcer), then liquid antacids *have to* work. Simple chemistry (acid/base) dictates that this is the case. The base (antacid) neutralizes any excess acid, creating water and salts. Try tapering nexium, (esomeprazole) and if there is heartburn, use maalox (prn). Stomach acid has an original reason: sterilizing and breaking down foods. ...Read more
How can I time taking Nexium or acid relievers with adderall? I usually take 1 adderall (20 mg, not xr) when I wake up, and 2nd a few hours later.
Nexium: Nexium type medications (ppi's) should be taken in the morning before eating any food, as they are designed to block the release of stomach acids. If you eat or take any other medications before taking nexium, stomach acids would then be released. Your pharmacist can also be of help in answering questions about your medications. ...Read more
