I took 1 Nexium straight out of the bottle, then filled my pill box with them as well, an hour later i went to take my other medications (which were in the pill box) taking them all at once forgetting that there was an extra Nexium in along with my pills for that day there for taking 2 Nexium's for the day. Therefore making it 44mg for the day and not the directed 22mg from the box. Is this safe?
Accidently took two Nexium 22mg when directed to take 1, Is this safe?

I just did the same thing, but I accidentally took 2 40 mg pills at once... I can't find anything about this being safe or not, if y'all have any direction to point me in I would be grateful!
Hey there, not to worry it's very safe I actually take 4 per day, I'm supposed to be on 2 of the 40mg pills and my insurance doesn't cover it now so I was told to just take 4 of the 22mg, but nothing will happen if you take more than one..so no worries it won't be toxic or anything...
