How Esomeprazole Works
Esomeprazole works by decreasing the amount of acid produced in the stomach. It is a proton pump inhibitor which reduces gastric acid secretion. Esomeparzole is also used to promote healing of erosive esophagitis (damage to your esophogus caused by stomach acid).
Generic Nexium vs Brand Nexium
Brand Nexium and generic Esomeprazole are chemically and therapeutically the same. Meaning that the potency and effectiveness is the same. Our Nexium brand or generic comes in a tablet form. The most significant and apparent difference is the manufacturer; the brand Nexium will be manufactured by AstraZeneca and the generic will be manufactured by another company outside of an AstraZeneca facility. Another important difference is the cost of the medication; Blue Sky Drugs can offer a generic Esomeprazole alternative for a fraction of the price of the brand.
Esomeprazole Possible side effects
Many of these side effects can be managed and will go away over time as your body adjusts to the medication.
• Abdominal pain
• Dry mouth
• Nausea or vomiting
Stop taking Esomeprazole and seek immediate medical attention if you see any signs of a severe allergic reaction such as hives, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the tongue, face mouth or throat.
Do not take Esomeprazole if you are allergic to Esomeprazole or any of its ingredients. Notify your doctor if you have ever had liver disease or any type of heart disease. Take Nexium exactly how it is prescribed.
The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.
