Vimovo Overview

Esomeprazole, sold under the brand names Nexium among others,[1] is a proton-pump inhibitor which reduces stomach acid. It is used in the treatment of dyspepsia, peptic ulcer disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Vimovo - side effects

When I started taking 2 Vimovo a day, I had some disconcerting side effects: coughing and wheezing at night, acid reflux that would be so severe I was up-chucking. One morning I awoke and all my muscles and body ached like I had the flu. I even coughed up some mucus tinged with blood. ## Hello, Nancy! How are you doing? Has there been any change? This medication contains a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, which according to the FDA, can cause stomach irritation and ulceration, however, it also contains Esomeprazole, which should help prevent such issues. The coughing and wheezing is concerning, because that could be a sign of other, possibly dangerous, health issues, according to the NIH. Have you informed your doctor? It would be best to have these symptoms checked out.

Can anyone help ? ## Vimovo combines the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory Naproxen, used to relieve pain and swelling, with the proton pump inhibitor Esomaprazol to protect the stomach from the irritation and damage that the NSAIDs can cause.
