NEXIUM SACHETS (ESOMEPRAZOLE)

Who Can Benefit from a Prescription for Nexium Sachets?

Nexium Sachets contain the active ingredient Esomeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor prescribed for children aged one year old and up that are bothered by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and older children with peptic ulcers. GERD occurs when food and acid from your stomach washes back into the esophagus and causes a burning sensation.

Peptic ulcers are caused by the Helicobacter pylori bacteria and can be found in the stomach (gastric ulcer), or the tube leading out of the stomach (duodenal ulcer). Your child may be required to take an antibiotic with Nexium Sachets to kill the bacteria while healing and preventing it from occurring again.

How the Active Ingredient Provides Relief from GERD and Ulcers

Taken as directed, Nexium Sachets target the gastric proton pump in order to inhibit the secretion of acid production in your stomach. This allows your stomach and/or esophagus time to heal from the effects of the acid that can damage the mucus lining of your stomach and cause the burning in your chest from reflux.

Peptic ulcers are treated with antibiotics and Nexium Sachets to kill the H. pylori and start healing the affected areas. The use of non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can also cause lesions in your stomach that will benefit from the use of Nexium Sachets.

Conditions Treated by Nexium Sachets

Heartburn is the most common symptom of GERD in young children and teenagers. Babies may have problems after a feeding and vomit, fail to gain weight, be irritable, and have wet hiccups or burps. As with adults, keeping their head higher than their tummy helps and they usually outgrow this by the age of two years.

Nexium Sachets can also benefit those with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (ZES), a rare and complex condition that involves one or more tumors that form in your pancreas or upper part of your small intestine. These gastrinomas secrete high amounts of a hormone called gastrin that results in too much stomach acid that can lead to peptic ulcers. There is no cure for ZES, but Nexium Sachets can relieve your painful symptoms.

Before You Take Nexium Sachets

Ask your doctor if Nexium Sachets are safe for you to take if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies you or your child has and specify any OTC and Rx drugs being taken, including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements to be certain there will not be any unintended side effects when taken with Nexium Sachets.

Proper Use of Nexium Sachets

Follow directions as per your doctor for mixing Nexium Sachets or talk to your pharmacist if you are unsure. Once mixed, it should be taken within thirty minutes. Nexium Sachets contain sucrose and glucose so oral hygiene is important to avoid cavities. If you are diabetic, ask your doctor if Nexium Sachets can affect your blood glucose or if you might require a dosage change for your insulin or other medication.
