2 doctors weighed in:

I was diagnosed with acid reflux and have been on Nexium (esomeprazole) 40Mg twice daily. Would an upper endoscopy show whether the drug is still working?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: GERD

If your symptoms are resolved, it means it is working.
If you still have symptoms of heart burn , epiphany tic pain, then you need upper endoscopy to rule out any other condition
