Nexium (Esomeprazole) - Summary
Nexium, containing esomeprazole magnesium, is a medication in the treatment of some cases of gastrointestinal reflux disease as well as other conditions caused by acid balance disorders. People who need a nexium generic prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe esomeprazole 40 mg when appropriate to do so.
What Is Nexium Used For?
Nexium (esomeprazole) belongs to a class of medications known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Like the similar medications Dexilant, omeprazole and pantoprazole, esomeprazole blocks the ATPase involved with H+ / K+ movements in the parietal cells of the stomach. The inhibition involves a molecule known as sulphenamide that is produced by protonation in acidic regions in the parietal cell. In doing so, esomeprazole impairs the last step in acid production, blocking the secretion of gastric acid and reducing the overall acidity in a dose-dependent manner. As a result, Nexium is used in some cases of gastroesophageal reflux disease (i.e. acid reflux, H. pylori treatment and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
Nexium - Coupon and Dosage
Nexium coupons may be available online or through the manufacturer for people paying out of pocket. Some insurance plans may cover costs associated with a Nexium prescription, depending on why esomeprazole was prescribed. Nexium is available in capsule form as Nexium 20 mg and Nexium 40 mg delayed-release capsules. Nexium is also available as a delayed-release oral suspension containing Nexium 2.5 mg, Nexium 5 mg, Nexium 10 mg, Nexium 20 mg and Nexium 40 mg. The starting Nexium dose in adults is typically Nexium 20 mg for 4-8 weeks and the dose may be titrated based on the patient's health needs. Ultimately, the Nexium dosage used depends on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Following oral administration, Nexium reaches peak levels in the plasma in under two hours in many people. In the plasma, most esomeprazole is found bound to proteins and most of the drug is excreted in the urine.
Can I Buy Nexium Online?
Some versions of Nexium do not require a prescription at pharmacies in the United States, making Nexium OTC an option. However, for prescription-strength esomeprazole, one cannot just buy Nexium online. The first step to getting a prescription for esomeprazole magnesium is consulting with a medical provider, and Push Health can connect people who need a Nexium prescription with a licensed professional who can prescribe Nexium when appropriate to do so.
Nexium - Side Effects
Nexium, like similar medications, can cause side effects. Side effects that can result from esomeprazole use include nausea, flatulence, diarrhea, headache, constipation and dry mouth. People who have a known hypersensitivity to esomeprazole, Nexium or other proton pump inhibitor medications should not use Nexium. Nexium should be used cautiously with antiretroviral drugs, digoxin, iron salts, some blood thinners, and some immune-modulating medications. One should avoid using alcohol when taking Nexium. Before using Nexium, it is important to discuss concerns and side effects from esomeprazole use with one's medical provider and pharmacist.
