Buy Nexium Online, Acid Reflux Prescription Medication, Heartburn Relief, GERD, Reduce Stomach Acids
Imagine, taking just one morning pill and forgetting heartburn the rest of the day. For people suffering from frequent heartburn, there is relief. Nexium is a prescription medication that puts out the fire—and it works for anyone age 12 and over.
The drug Nexium is used to treat the signs and symptoms of acid reflux disease, as well as gastro-esophageal reflux disease, or GERD. For many, Nexium provides relief for up to 24 hours with just one dose. Nexium also helps to control inflammation in the esophagus caused by stomach acids—and helps promote healing in the esophagus lining.
How Nexium Works:
Nexium is a proton pump inhibitor—which means it turns off the stomach’s "acid pumps.” When these specific acid-producing pumps are shut down, there is less acid in your stomach. When your stomach produces less acid, less gets into your esophagus. That same excess acid can possibly damage tissues, too.
So, when Nexium turns off the acid pumps, it can relieve heartburn pain. It can also heal damage caused by acid in the esophagus lining. For many people, this healing can occur in the first 4 to 8 weeks. These results may vary.
How to take Nexium:
Nexium capsules should be taken orally approximately one hour before a meal with a full glass of water. It is important to continue to take Nexium regularly until the prescription is finished to experience the best results. At that point, your doctor may evaluate you to determine whether a second course of treatment is necessary.
Benefits of Nexium:
For people who suffer from the pain and burning associated with acid reflux and GERD, relief is the most important benefit of taking Nexium. Just one convenient dose controls acid for up to 24 hours, and there is no need to avoid food or beverages. You can go ahead and enjoy your morning coffee without any heartburn!
When you decide to take Nexium, talk to your doctor about it. Keep in mind: There are six available medications in the same class of drugs as Nexium. They all have generic equivalents. Nexium does not have a generic form.
No two drugs in this class are exactly the same. They don’t all work the same for all patients (that includes the generics). When doctors prescribe Nexium, it’s because they believe Nexium is the right one for their patients.
