What is Neksium?

Neksium treats acid reflux and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (heartburn). It can help to reduce the symptoms of heartburn and is used to treat as well as prevent stomach ulcers. Using Neksium can help to heal damage to these areas from acid reflux.

Acid reflux happens when the muscle at the bottom of your oesophagus relaxes at the wrong time or the sphincter muscle becomes weak or fails to close tightly, allowing stomach acid back up into your oesophagus. The burning feeling that comes as a result of acid reflux is known as heartburn. Acid reflux can also cause other symptoms such as an unpleasant taste in your mouth, a cough, hiccups, a hoarse voice, bad breath, bloating and feeling sick. These symptoms can be worse after eating, when you’re lying down and when you bend over.

If these symptoms continue and they keep happening, it’s known as gastro-oesophageal reflux disease or heartburn. It’s a relatively common condition but can be uncomfortable, frustrating and cause problems with fairly simple day-to-day tasks like eating, exercise and lying down. There are also lifestyle changes that can be made to try and improve the symptoms of these conditions.

Neksium – a treatment for acid reflux and heartburn – is a branded version of medication called Esomeprazole. It’s available as a gastro-resistant capsule, as a tablet or as an injection.

How does Neksium work?

The active ingredient in Neksium, esomeprazole, works on the proton pumps in the wall of the stomach. These are responsible for the production and release of acids, which are essential in the breaking down of food. Neksium works to reduce the action of these pumps, which lowers the amount of stomach acids that are produced, helping to decrease the symptoms of acid reflux and heartburn.

What doses of Neksium are there?

Neksium tablets are available in two doses: 20mg and 40mg. The usual dose is one tablet or capsule daily for up to 4 weeks for the treatment of acid reflux. For long-term prevention of acid reflux you may need to take it for as long as your doctor tells you to.

It is also available as an injection which you should take in accordance with guidance from your doctor and the instructions that come with your Neksium.

How to take Neksium

Always follow the instructions of your doctor while you start your treatment.

  • Swallow Neksium capsules/tablets whole with a glass of water. Do not chew or crush them.
  • It should be taken before meals, preferably in the morning if you are taking it once a day.
  • Take it with or without food.
  • Do not skip or miss a dose.

    If you have any questions about how to take Neksium during your treatment, you can send a question to our clinical team at any time.

How long does it take Neksium to work?

Neksium starts to work straight away after a single dose. It takes about 1–2 hours to reach its performance ‘peak’ in the bloodstream. In clinical trials, taking Neksium at the same time as food wasn’t shown to slow down its effectiveness.

What should I do if I make a mistake when taking Neksium?

Take it when you remember if you miss a dose. If it’s almost time for your next dose, just skip the one you missed. Get medical advice urgently if you take too much.

FAQ: Neksium

Have something specific you want to know about Neksium? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How is Neksium different to other treatments for heartburn?

Answer:
Neksium, containing the active ingredient esomeprazole, is thought to be processed more slowly than some alternatives. This means that the levels of the drug are higher in your bloodstream, which may mean that it helps to reduce the production of acid in your body for a longer amount of time. It also offers more effective control than alternatives, such as omeprazole, at the same doses.

It’s also broken down differently by your liver to some alternatives, which could mean that you need fewer treatments than other types of medication for acid reflux and heartburn. Esomeprazole can also provide faster relief than alternatives in the first week of use, so you may feel the benefits of the medication sooner.

Neksium offers a different way to take to this type of acid reflux relief that isn’t an option with many of alternative treatments. If you find it difficult to take tablets (or you don’t like taking them) then injection might be a better option for you.

Is Neksium similar to any other treatments?

Answer:
Acid reflux treatments tend to be from the group of medications known as proton pump inhibitors, but can come as different names like Esofine, Espra, Zosa, Rostrum, Lupisoz and Yees. These contain the same active ingredient (Esomeprazole) as Neksium and work similarly.

Which dose of Neksium should I use?

Answer:
Your dose of Neksium depends on what condition you’re treating and how bad your symptoms are. For example, the dose for ulcers is different to the dose for acid reflux. 

You might take the higher dose for an ulcer for a shorter period of time, but for acid reflux you might only need a lower dose but for a longer period. For treatment of acid reflux you’ll only take it for 4–8 weeks, but for long term prevention you’ll take it over a prolonged period.

Your doctor can talk to you about the right amount to take for your condition and symptoms to find relief from the symptoms that you’re experiencing.

How effective is Neksium?

Answer:
Omeprazole (the active ingredient in Neksium) has been shown to offer significantly greater acid control than alternatives like lansoprazole, one of the other popular treatments for acid reflux.  It’s also thought to offer faster relief from nighttime symptoms in comparison.

Neksium starts to work straight away after a single dose. One study showed that 86% of patients with severe symptoms healed within 12 weeks of using omeprazole.

Do I need a prescription for Neksium?

Answer:
You’ll require a prescription in order to buy Neksium. Your doctor will prescribe Neksium after analyzing your condition and your medical profile. If you’ve any pre-existing conditions or are taking any medications already, let your doctor know about them during the consultation. They'll suggest treatment keeping in mind that it doesn’t interact with the medications you’re taking and is suitable for you even if you have certain health conditions. Once you start taking Neksium, they’ll also monitor how it is working for you and may ask you to visit him after a few days of starting treatment.
