    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).

    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.
