Side Effect for long term use?
21 Aug 2011
Nexium is a proton inhibitor given for gastritis and/or ulcers. If the ulcer is from the h-pylori bacteria usually an antibiotic is also given. The usual course is 4 to 8 weeks, but your doctor may have you take it longer if he deems it necessary. You can go to Drugas A to Z at the top of this page, clik on that & letter N. It will lead you to the name of this med, & that will give you all the info you need to know about side effects etc...
