Product Description

Esomeprazole

Esomeprazole is a generic medication used to treat stomach disorders such as erosive esophagitis, gastric or duodenal ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux diseases, also known as GERD.  GERD is a digestive disorder caused by acid reflux that enters the esophagus.

The medication is a Proton Pump Inhibitor or PPI and works by effectively reducing the acidity of the stomach.

 Nexium

Esomeprazole is the less expensive, generic medication. The brand name equivalent is Nexium.

Nexium and the generic alternative Esomeprazole are classified as proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s). Their function is to lower the acidity level of the stomach in order to treat conditions that are caused by over production of stomach acid. Conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (also known as GORD or simply acid reflux) and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome are effectively treated by this medication. It is also effective in the treatment of intestinal and stomach ulcers.

Nexium is also used as a preventative treatment to reduce the risk of gastric ulcer development. These can occur as a result of infection with H. pylori or due to the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

The medication will take a few days to take effect so is not an immediate treatment for heartburn. It is important that the patient adheres to the recommended dosage as advises their doctor of all medical conditions they experience.

If a patient is allergic to rabeprazole, pantoprazole, omeprazole, and lansoprazole they could well also be allergic to esomeprazole. If this is suspected or any doubts exists, an allergy test should be conducted.  Medical staff must always be informed of any allergies. If an allergic reaction occurs it is vital that the patient gets immediate medical attention.

Heartburn is often mistaken as an early symptom of a heart attack. Other symptoms of a heart attack are sweating, fever, nausea and pain going down the arms and shoulders. As soon as the patient is stable, they should seek medical attention to correctly diagnose the problem.

If a patient suffers from liver disorders, low magnesium levels in their blood, low mineral density in their bone or osteoporosis, they must inform their doctor.
