    I don’t know why they won’t just let the patient and the doctor decide about it. If terminally ill patients with cancer are allowed to request to try an investigational drug, why can’t they extend the same right to COVID-19 patients that are managed by their primary physicians? Why should the FDA let them wait until they are about to have a cardio respiratory compromise? It’s gonna be too late.

    Esomeprazole is used to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems (such as acid reflux, ulcers). It works by decreasing the amount of acid produced by your stomach. It relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough.

    This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus, helps prevent ulcers, and may help prevent cancer of the esophagus. It belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).
