I have taken the exact same dose for like a bazzillion years now!! I do experience all kinds of odd stomach issues every now and then on it and my doctor has said that's normal for me. The vertigo you are experiencing I personally never have from nexium, and would forsure tell my doctor about to be safe. There are tons of PPI drugs out there and maybe this one is not for you so not to worry (:
My husband can't take nexium as he gets the weirdest side effects and hates the feeling when on it. Bloating, nausea etc.. Hang in there and be sure to see the doctor.
