In brief: Need more time

Prilosec and nexium (esomeprazole) need time to work.
Ideally you should take them daily before breakfast and for 2 months. If your symptoms persist or return after you stop therapy, you should consider a pH monitoring study to quantify the magnitude of the problem and take further action.
