Coming Off Nexium
I take Nexium 40mg twice daily can I take Pepcid complete also? I'm still having acid with food coming up.
Don't combine them: If your symptoms are so severe you're considering doubling up on acid blockers, you need medical evaluation. Please see your physician asap. It looks like you've already had endoscopy, so you already have a gastroenterologist who knows your case. Please contact this physician for more individualized advice -- and you might consider a good probiotic and some tums in the meantime. ...Read more

However, if it is for GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease), as it appears likely in your case, then it is to be taken indefinitely. You can switch to an H2 blocker (Pepcid, Axid, Tagamet etc) if your GERD symptoms. Nexium is also safe for long term use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
