I've been taking Nexium for 3 months. Do I have to wean off the medication or can I stop suddenly.
Do what makes you feel comfortable. I don't see a problem with you stopping the medication suddenly, however you'll know if that doesn't work for you right away. If that's the case, just create yourself a small weaning schedule. It wouldn't have to be anything lengthy.
Keep in mind, if you plan on taking it again any time soon, it may be better just to keep taking it. It is a type of medication that needs to be in your bloodstream on a continual basis to be most effective.
I'd call your local pharmacist with any more questions, they generally don't mind helping with this stuff. That said, I think I just about covered it ;-)
Hope this helps!!
