... indicate Nexium can cause esophagitis. Anyone else heard about this or experienced it? I just had an endoscopy and they said I had esophagits and did some biopsies for polyps
I do see what you are referring to. The percentage I have found in other articles is <1% of this happening. That means such a small number of people reportably had this problem indicates to me. Was there an endocopy done prior to the start of Nexium? Even if it was the damage event happened after the start of Nexium could it be that the subject patient missed or was skipping doses of this drug and did not report it.
Honestly, there are too many if's, if a positive is <1%. I would not worry about this.
I have been on Nexium for many years now and yes, I sometimes have breakthrough acid reflex. But what drug works 100%???
Take inconsideration we only know about 10% of what a drug can do.
You take care
