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).June 29, 2020 at 4:48 pm #679
Which is better between omeprazole and esomeprazole?June 29, 2020 at 4:56 pm #680
A study between omeprazole and omeprazole has shown that esomeprazole is able to inhibit acid far superior than omeprazole. Forty milligrams of esomeprazole is more effective than double the standard dose of omeprazole. Also, esomeprazole is well-tolerated by the patients. Thus, between the two, esomeprazole is the better drug.December 2, 2020 at 9:28 am #915
When should I take this medication?December 2, 2020 at 9:34 am #916
Proton-pump inhibitors, or drugs that end in “-prazole” are recommended to be taken on an empty stomach, preferably 30 minutes to an hour before meals.. This is to allow the medication to take effect and suppress acid production before food is introduced into the stomach since the presence of food would always increase the acid production in the stomach.December 15, 2020 at 3:27 pm #939
I had the misfortune of ignoring my frequent heartburn that now I am diagnosed with GERD. So my doctor prescribed me with Esomeprazole Magnesium a combination which is my maintenance.December 15, 2020 at 3:29 pm #940
My mother shares the same sentiment. But she takes them for 1 week then goes back to taking them as needed when she feels the symptoms again.December 15, 2020 at 3:32 pm #941
Esomeprazole shouldn’t be taken for long-term use though, as it may cause high risk of stomach lining inflammation.December 15, 2020 at 3:34 pm #942
I feel much better after 2 to 3 days of taking the medicine as prescribed to me. But I always have one with me on hand should I ever need one.December 15, 2020 at 3:37 pm #943
Hi guys. I feel bloated when I take esomeprazole. Is this normal? I feel kind of fat because of it.December 15, 2020 at 3:39 pm #944
Some heartburn drugs such as esomeprazole may cause bloating and weight gain. Highly recommended to see your doctor should you need to take this drug for long term use.December 15, 2020 at 3:42 pm #945
Hi kyle, I was told, as clichéd as it may sound, to couple this regime with exercise. I’ve been going for morning walks for a month now and so far don’t feel as heavy as I opted to feel.December 15, 2020 at 3:46 pm #946
I agree with that statement. I do feel energized as well.December 15, 2020 at 3:49 pm #947
What happens if I skipped a dose of esomeprazole? Can I still take the missed dose?December 15, 2020 at 3:51 pm #948
Rule of thumb, never double dose. Take the missed dose as soon as you can but if it’s nearing the next dose, skip the missed one and go back to the proposed medication regime given to you.
