- Nexium (esomeprazole)
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Ceftin (cefuroxime) and Nexium (esomeprazole)
Using cefuroxime together with esomeprazole is not recommended. By reducing stomach acid, esomeprazole can decrease the absorption and blood levels of cefuroxime and make the medication less effective against infections. You may need to stop taking esomeprazole while you are being treated with cefuroxime, or your doctor may want to prescribe a different antibiotic. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Drug and food interactions
Applies to: Nexium (esomeprazole)
Food may interfere with the absorption of esomeprazole. Esomeprazole should be taken at least one hour before meals and at the same time every day. When esomeprazole is given to patients receiving continuous enteral nutrition (tube feedings), the tube feeding should be interrupted for at least 1 hour before and 1 hour after the dose of esomeprazole. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
