You could talk to your doctor about helping you enroll in a prescription drug program, if he/she wants you to take the Nexium (not a generic or other med). My doctor helped me enroll in a program to help pay for my medications. The Johnson&Johnson Patient Assistance program pays 100% of two of my prescriptions. I believe it depends on the doctor's orders whether they help with brand name or generic. For more information on this particular program you can call 1-800-652-6227. I hope this helps.

You could talk to the company, however, Nexium is part of a class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Several types of proton pump inhibitors are available by prescription only. These include:

Pantoprazole (Protonix); Lansoprazole (Prevacid); Rabeprazole (AcipHex); Omeprazole (Prilosec); Omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate (Zegerid); Dexlansoprazole (Dexilant).

Three PPIs are available without a prescription. These medications are:

Prevacid 24HR; Prilosec OTC; Zegerid OTC.

You could perhaps try the meds mentioned above which might be available cheaper, hope the info helps?
