Prescribing Information for Nexium (Esomeprazole):
What is Nexium?
Nexium (esomeprazole) is a medicine used to reduce the quantity of acid created in the stomach.
Nexium is prescribed for treatment of symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other diseases including intensive producing of stomach acid, for example, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Nexium also helps to cure erosive esophagitis (an esophagus disease provoked by stomach acid).
Nexium may also be prescribed to treat gastric ulcer provoked by contamination with helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), or by the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Nexium is not intended for instant release of heartburn symptoms.
The medication may also be prescribed for other uses.
What is important to know about Nexium?
Do not use Nexium if you have allergy to esomeprazole or to any other benzimidazole medicine, for example albendazole (Albenza), or mebendazole (Vermox).
If you have liver problems, your doctor may need to change your Nexium dose or to monitor you.
Nexium is not indicated for instant release of heartburn.
For treatment of some diseases you may need to use Nexium together with antibiotics. Follow all the prescriptions of your doctor and read the instructions which come with medications carefully. You should not change your dose or schedule of taking the medicines unless your doctor prescribes it.
Do not stop taking Nexium earlier than prescribed. You may feel better before you treat your disease entirely. Avoid chewing, crushing, breaking or opening the sustained-action capsule. Swallow the tablet whole to avoid releasing of too much medicine at once.
People frequently confuse heartburn with the first signs of a heart attack. Get emergency medicine if you experience any of the following symptoms: nausea, sweating, general ill feeling, chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder.
How should Nexium be taken?
Follow the prescriptions of your doctor and the instructions which come with the medication carefully. Do not change your dose and do not use Nexium for a longer period than prescribed.
Nexium is commonly used for a period from 4 to 8 weeks. Your healthcare provider may prescribe you a second course if the first one is not enough.
Take your dose of Nexium with 8 ounces (a full glass) of liquid not later than an hour before your meal. Avoid chewing, crushing, breaking or opening the sustained-action capsule. Swallow the tablet whole to avoid releasing of too much medicine at once.
To swallow the medicine easier, you may open the sustained-action capsule and mix the mediciation with a spoonful of pudding or applesauce. Swallow the mixture immediately, do not chew it. Do not store it for later use. Throw out the empty capsule.
A nasogastric (NG) feeding tube can be used to give Nexium. Inject the medicine from an opened capsule into a 60-milliliter syringe. Add 50 milliliters of water. Put the plunger in the syringe and shake the contents well. Check that no granules of the medication stay stuck in the tip of the syringe. Connect the syringe with the NG tube and push the plunger to let all the mixture get into the tube. Then rinse the tube with more water to wash down the mixture remaining in the tube.
For best results, you should take Nexium regularly. Get a renewed prescription earlier than you run out of the medication.
Do not stop taking Nexium earlier than prescribed. You may feel better before you treat your disease entirely.
Keep Nexia at room temperature protected from heat and moisture.
