Anxiety is not a common side effect for Nexium, during the clinical trials there were not reported anxiety while taking this medication. May be other drug you take could provoke anxiety?

I know you posted this a long time ago, but I just wanted to butt in and let you know that Nexium very well could have been causing your anxiety. Pharmaceutical companies that make the drugs like Nexium and Reglan don't warn enough people of their potential to cause anxiety, depression, sadness, restlessness, aggravation, and hallucinations, ect. because, in their studies, less than 1% of the test subjects had these side effects (if you will read Nexium's side effects list very carefully you will see it has potential for anxiety, depression, restlessness, and agitation--so it's in there, it's just not in the big red letters it needs to be in). Reglan literally caused me to lose my mind (sad, cause it worked perfectly) and I practically had a panic attack for two months straight. The worst part was, none of the Dr.s believed me. Not my family Dr or any of the ones at the ER. I'm sure they thought I was just pill shopping.
Either way, they dismissed my claims as Clonazepam withdrawals. I had my Clonazepam in my pocket! They weren't working! I hope that all turned out well for you & that you were able to either tolerate the Nexium or get off of it.
