Nexium 24HR Description

Nexium 24HR is now available over-the-counter to provide relief from heartburn and allow most ulcers to heal with the control of stomach acid. It can take 1 to 4 days before you notice the full effect Nexium 24HR has on your heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or painful ulcers. Taking Nexium 24HR or any medications for heartburn or GERD as a long-term medication is not usually recommended. Your doctor or pharmacist may suggest that you take Nexium 24HR for a 14-day course and repeat in no sooner than 4 months, if required.

How Proton Pump Inhibitors Work

Nexium 24HR contains Esomeprazole Magnesium, a proton pump inhibitor that works by blocking the enzyme in the wall of your stomach that’s responsible for producing acid. This enzyme is called hydrogen/potassium adenosine triphosphatase and it causes parietal cells of your stomach lining to produce acid that helps to break food down chemically. By reducing this acid, any lesions or ulcers in your stomach and esophagus are allowed time to heal. The effects of Nexium can take 1-4 days before you notice the positive effects and treatments are usually carried out for 14 days for frequent heartburn.

Conditions Treated by Nexium 24HR

GERD is the return of your stomach contents backing up into your esophagus; this is due to the lower esophageal sphincter not closing properly. Some individuals may experience GERD due to a hiatal hernia that developed from a pregnancy, coughing excessively, or straining during bowel movements. Surgery is not usually required unless the hiatal hernia threatens to become strangulated or constricted.

Nexium 24HR greatly reduces symptoms of an acidic taste in your mouth and regurgitation. Heartburn can be well controlled by knowing the foods and drink that cause the burning symptoms that too much stomach acid can cause. You can also try maintaining a healthy weight, raising the head of your bed by 4 to 8 inches, and stop smoking to avoid heartburn.

Before You Take Nexium 24HR

Discuss other health conditions you have and any Rx drugs or OTC medicine you are taking, including vitamin, mineral, and dietary supplements to avoid possible negative interactions with Nexium 24HR. If you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast-feeding, ask your doctor if Nexium 24HR is safe to take.

Precautions for Nexium 24HR

It is thought that acid reduction in your stomach can result in the malabsorption of calcium and other vitamins and minerals so your doctor or pharmacist may suggest taking supplements if you are a long-term user of antacids.
