Although considered a condition of middle age, hiatal hernias affect people of all ages. Taking nexium proton pump inhibitor such as Nexium may increase your risk of bone fracture in the hip, wrist, or spine. Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. The primary medications used for GERD are proton-pump inhibitors, H2 receptor blockers and antacids with or without alginic acid.
There are also new therapies for reflux that can be performed through an endoscope (a flexible tube passed through the mouth into the stomach).
Too much magnesium can be serious for patients with kidney nexium. It is not known whether esomeprazole passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing familiarity. Obesity and pregnancy also contribute to this condition.
This effect has occurred mostly in people who have taken the medicine long term or at high nexium, and in those who are age 50 and older. Long-term use of antacids, however, can result in side effects, including diarrhea, altered calciummetabolism (a change in the way the body breaks down and procedures calcium), and buildup of magnesium in the body.

Nexium Information for Patients
It appears both "Nexium" and "Prilosec" are just brand names for "Omeprazole". Went to GI doctors they denied it was the medication. My ulcers are in the duodenum, rather than the stomach.
I guess if your doctor wants you to take 2 doses of Omeprazole daily, then it's all right. I started taking it again because I had taken Dayquil along with it to relieve a cough I had and couldn't get rid of. It then reacts to the food that you eat later and starts working. All that diet pill does is penalise people for not sticking to their diet.
Edit - why in the smeg is THIS downmodded? emmapat; This should resolve itself I would give it at least, a week and if your still having problems call your doctor. yes, being in the drugs seems like a cash grab, I'll admit, but there are no other real alternatives, besides surgery. Both Astra Zeneca & Pfizer are collecting information like this from patients so please call them. This list may not describe all possible interactions. Nexium is at best only 3% more effective than Prilosec.
Overdose when using Nexium
Hi Dboling, It may be time for you to change brands. A different isomer, or an isolated isomer, is not the same thing. Then you can see the consumer's list AND the professionals detailed list. When I had an issue like yours they gave me pain meds since it makes you constipated? I know that ulcers can be caused by bacteria, but ulcers and GERD are completely different things, and one is not caused by the other.
