I had esophagus cancer surgery 4 years ago. I was prescribed Nexium 40mg twice per day. Last month my ins company switched me to Esomeprazole Mag DR 40 mg once per day. I understood there was no generic for Nexium.
Geez, they didn't waste any time. Its the generic for nexium. It was just approved a few months ago.
The "DR" indicates it has a delayed release, thus the switch from twice a day to only once.
