Nexium 40 Mg Equivilents

Is Pantoprazole sod dr 40 mg the same drug as Nexium 40 mg? My husband was given Nexium samples by the doctor but was prescribed the Pantoprazole. Thank you ## Hi Barb, From what I could gather, they appear to be completely different drugs that are used for similar purposes. My guess is that the doctor wanted him to sample the Nexium to see if he responded better to one or the other. Nexium contains the active ingredient Esomeprazole & Pantoprazole happens to be the active ingredient in and of itself; but both are classified as proton pump inhibitors. I hope this info helps to shed some light on the subject!

alcohol and

why shouldn't you take nexium with alcohol, when alcohol gives you heartburn ## Nexium treats heart burn symptoms as a result of excessive consumption of alcohol. Nexium prescription will reduce the severity of such symptoms. However prolonged use of this medicine is not advisable. In fact nexium pills show better relief from gastro esophageal reflux diseases (GERD) only. Some users get really ill when combining alcohol and nexium, while this combination doesn't have the same effect on others. Nexium (esomeprazole), however, is metabolized by the liver; so if you have a liver disease from too much alcohol, this would not be a wise choice. Additionally, in some people, alcohol can cause acid reflux to be worse. So while there isn't a drug interaction between Nexium and alcoho...

Esomeprazo

I suffer from severe gerd, was diagnosed about 3yrs ago. I was on nexium but due to availability I changed to pantocid. My question is for how long can one be on either pantocid or nexium? ## Pantocid contains the active ingredient Pantoprazole, which is in the same class as the Esomeprazole in the Nexium, so they are both proton pump inhibitors that are used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach. The length of time for use can vary, depending on the severity of the condition being treated. You should follow your doctor's advice to get the best results. In most cases, they are used for anywhere from 8 to 16 weeks and the effects of using them long-term have not been studied. However, so far, there haven't been any major adverse reports tied to the medications in p...

Liver cancer

I should not be taking NEXIUM if I have a serious liver problem. I can looked it up on the internet! ## Have you discussed it with your doctor? Did they suggest you use Nexium? Nexium contains the active ingredient Esomeprazole, it is used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to treat or prevent conditions such as heartburn and ulcers. And, while it can affect how certain other medications may be processed by the liver, it doesn't actually list that it shouldn't be taken by those with liver problems. It just says that their daily dosage needs to be carefully adjusted. Learn more:

Dexilant Dr

I currently take Dexilant DR 60mg for acid reflux and I have 4 ulcers in my small Intestine. I dont seem to be getting any relief from the Ulcers. Does anyone have any suggestions? Im deperate. I was on Nexium 80mg's before I started the Dexilant. It too worked for a while than stopped. ## How long did you take them? It can take 12 to 16 weeks for these medications to help such conditions heal. When you are taking them, you should continue to take them for the full time your doctor has prescribed, even if you are still experiencing some symptoms. On the other hand, if you have actually tried them for the correct time period and they have not helped, you might need to try a different medication. They have put me on one of these and it didn't help me, at all, and in addition, due ...

I've been taking zerodal for 5 days and started taking beralgin yesterday as well as beralgin. Does all these three bring side effects of swollen mouth and finger tips and feet ## Before I cover any of these medications, it is important that you know that swelling in the mouth is not a side effect, that can be a sign of a serious allergic reaction and it is very important that you contact your doctor immediately! Zerodol contains the active ingredients Aceclofenac and Paracetamol, it is used to treat pain and swelling. The common side effects from it can include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach irritation. Baralgan contains the active ingredient Analgin or Metimizole, this is another pain reliever. It is another nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, just like the Aceclofenac in...

nexium side affects

I am using Nexiam 40 g for 10 days now. No more heartburn but I still have a hollow feeling on my stomach and now also uncomfortable feeling over my chest. ## It is kind of hard for me to guess as exactly what you mean by these descriptions. Are you speaking of chest pain? Stomach pain or something else? Common side effects can include: nausea, gas, diarrhea and abdominal pain. You can read more here: Have you spoken to your doctor about your concerns? ## I made an appointment to see my doctor on Friday. It is not really chest pains that I'm having, more like an anxiety feeling and also heart palpitation. This started after the 3rd or 4th day of taking the tablets.

pentoprazole

please give information about pentoprazole formulation and about companies list with addresses fromwhere i can obtaine this molecule or its salt form(pentoprazole sodium sesquihydrate) ## I WANT DETAIL DISCRIPTION ON THIS DRUG ## This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does. That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## Pentoprazole is on the Medicare formulary as a substitute for Nexium, so while omeprazole is more commonly prescribed, pentoprazole is, in fact, available. ...
