Nexium: Say Goodbye to Acid Reflux
Many people suffer from uncomfortably high amounts of stomach acid, and have heart burn or acid reflux on a regular basis. For some people, this may take the form of annoying heartburn which occurs as a reaction to stress, but for others, it may be a sign of full-blown acid reflux disease or a disorder of the esophagus. For extreme or minor cases of excess stomach acid, Nexium can be taken which reduces the intensity of the stomach acid and relieves many of the uncomfortable symptoms of heart burn and acid reflux.
Many people find they are unable to carry on with their regular diets and lifestyles without discomfort from acid reflux. They may have cut out coffee, spicey foods and alcohol. However, there may be some things that still cause them discomfort, and they may find they cannot eliminate absolutely everything in their diet that causes them a problem. In addition, the problem may go beyond diet and actually be the result of a malfunctioning in the body or the production of excess stomach acid. Nexium is effective in these cases for helping people cope with their daily lives and to eat regular diets.
One advantage of Nexium is it has very few side effects. Some people report nausea, headaches and diarrhea, but this is quite rare, and most people do not experience negative repercussions from taking the drug. One should beware if taking blood thinners such as warfarin and other heart drugs before taking Nexium.
Consult a doctor if you are pregnant, nursing or plan to become pregnant. You should also ensure that there are not drug interactions with Nexium. Those who take iron on a regular basis should also check, since Nexium may have an effect on iron as it is taken in pill form. Nexium is usually administered in tablets, but also can be taken as a liquid in the hospital in certain circumstances.
