Nexpro (Esomeprazole Magnesium)
What is Nexpro (Esomeprazole Magnesium) used for?
Nexpro (Esomeprazole Magnesium) is an oral proton pump inhibitor used to treat patients suffering from conditions caused by excess stomach acid production. It operates by reducing the amount of acid produced by the stomach to prevent it from backing up into the oesophagus or destroying the lining of the stomach. This makes it useful for treating symptoms such as gastro oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), stomach ulcers, or heartburn. Your doctor may also recommend the use of this medicine for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Nexpro (Esomeprazole Magnesium)?
Nexpro (Esomeprazole Magnesium) is normally taken once daily at a dosage of one tablet, but your individual instructions will depend on your age, weight, health condition, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These tablets should be swallowed with a large glass of water at least one hour before a major meal to ensure the stomach is empty to aid absorption. Do not chew or crush the tablets prior to use as this may destroy or alter the effects of their contents. Ask your pharmacist or doctor any questions you have regarding the medicine to ensure the correct usage.
