Nexium is a drug which reduces the acidity of gastric juice. This trade name coincides with the name of the active substance of the medication. Esomeprazole inhibited, that is, inhibits the effect of so-called “proton pump” (it moves in the gastric juice hydrogen ions and potassium, which leads to its active acidification).
This tool reduces the basal acidity (the one that is determined in the gastric juice, out of digestion), and stimulated (that is, a reaction to the meal). That is, the gastric juice is less acidic and on an empty stomach, during meals. This effect occurs about an hour after taking a dose.

Reviews of Nexium.
Basically, people who need for one reason or another to reduce the acidity of the stomach, discuss which drugs are best. For example, comparing omeprazole with Esomeprazole, patients have expressed completely different opinions:
– The doctor told me that only the Omeprazole should be taken, although the house was packing Nexium (esomeprazole).
– Proton pump inhibitors should be individualized. Here I do not respond to Omez. No way. Drink Nexium.
– Very decent generic Nexium.
That’s one view, which is hard to disagree:
-Better to spend time (under medical supervision) and to choose “their” product. Because then dosing can be used minimum, and it will be easier to cancel it then.
Esomeprazole is an effective tool, but use it only when exactly the diagnosis.
