Why are you suppose to take Nexium (esomeprazole) in the morning and an hour before a meal? Why can't you take it with a meal?
Nexium: Nexium works by shutting off proton pumps. Return pumps turn on to produce acid when the food comes into the stomach. Therefore, the Nexium needs to be in the system before the food gets there, to shut the proton pumps down. Otherwise, acid will be produced once the food arrives in the stomach. That's why you take the Nexium before the meal. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can eating really fast and not chewing food properly be the reason my food comes back up for hours after I eat and tastes the same as swallowed before?
Probably not.: Eating fast should not cause regurgitation of stomach contents, unless maybe you are eating so much that you are becoming overly full. Assuming that is not the case, then the rapidity of your eating should not make a difference. It is possible that you have acid reflux that is causing your symptoms. If antacids do not work, see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

I never feel hungry enough to eat a meal more than once a day, but how many meals should I eat in a day to be healthy? And what is a good size meal?
You may be a grazer!: If you are maintaining a healthy weight, it may be that you "graze" through the day - eating small, frequent mini-meals. There's nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, it may be a healthier way to eat. Try keeping a diary for a few days of everything you actually eat. If you have any doubt at that point, talk to your doctor. She/he or a nutritionist can help you sort it out. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more
