How do I know if Esomeprazole (Generic Nexium) is right for me?
People who produce too much stomach acid are at risk for severe discomfort (like in the form of heartburn indigestion) as well as at risk for causing damage to their stomach and esophagus. If you experience GERD symptoms (mainly a burning sensation in your esophagus or stomach pain associated with eating and digesting acidic foods), then you will likely benefit from the healing and preventative properties of Esomeprazole, or Generic Nexium.
Nexium Generic works by preventing the overproduction of gastric acid in your stomach. When the proton pumps in your stomach (of which there are billions) create too much acid, then when the stomach opens and closes (during eating) to let food in, some of the acids escape from the lined stomach into the unlined esophagus. Since the esophagus is unlined, there is no protection against the burning acid, and that is why people with too much acid experience heartburn, an uncomfortable and often painful burning sensation up and down the esophagus.
Generic Nexium is known as a proton pump inhibitor (or a PPI) which means that it blocks the proton pumps from producing an excessive amount of acid. The less acid there is in your stomach, then the less of a chance there is that the acid will escape from your stomach and float into the unlined, unprotected, and easily damaged esophagus. Nexium will reduce your risk of overproducing acid, which will in turn reduce your risk of experiencing the painful symptoms of GERD.
Nexium is a PPI, Proton Pump Inhibitor, like Prevacid or Prilosec.
