 2  Esophagitis, GERD, H Pylori Blurry vision, fatigue, bloating, brain fog, tinnitus, dry mouth and throat I can't even tell if it somewhat helped me or just my diet and lifestyle changes made the difference. The side effects are too much, though. The doctors prescribe it like it's nothing but it left me mostly bedbound. I can't leave the house alone as I'm too weak to move, it's hard to shower, I can't cook for myself anymore. At 27 I became dependant on my parents. Now I'm afraid of acid rebound if I quit it. 27 40 days

 1  Gerd Terrible side effects. Lightheadedness which gets worse when standing. Extreme feeling of weakness. Racing resting pulse over 140 bmp. Awful anxiety and panic attacks requiring valium for relief. Have been to ed six times in the last year. Makes you feel 100 years old. I have been bed ridden and unable to work for over a year. Walking is a big struggle. I have been gradually weaning off the nexium. I use gaviscon dual action tablets now when needed and feel 100 times better. Almost back to my old self again. Nexium is an awful med. Get of it ASAP!!!!!! M 46 2 years

 3  Reflux I suffer from anxiety and palpitations I have also developed lots of small polyps on my stomach lining! I have heard a lot of negative comments about the extended use of Nexium I have tried several times to stop using it without success my reflux is so bad if I stop or even reduce the dose I also have developed IBS which I am told can be caused by an insufficient amount of acid to digest food properly!? Has anyone stopped taking this drug without suffering extreme reflux, if so how?? M 74 12 years

 1  GERD Do not take!! My GERD is so bad I wake up choking in my sleep. I thought this was my miracle pill (no heartburn in months) but the past few days I've had anxiety so bad to the point where I thought I was having a heart attack and asked my boyfriend to take me to the ER. Chest and back pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, etc. I happen to read the back of my pill bottle yesterday which brought me here. I read everyone's reviews and was in tears because I've been so stressed out trying to figure out what's wrong with me. I'll take terrible heartburn and choking in my sleep over feeling like I'm having a heart attack ANY DAY. Worst feeling ever. F 28 6 months

 2  Stomach ulcer Have always took 20mg of esomeprazole for acid reflux never had any issues. Was diagnosed with stomach ulcer in May and GI doctor upped to 40 mg 20mg in the morning 20 mg in the evening. Stomach ulcer pain feels better by god the side effects. Heart racing every morning, palpitations, feeling shaky and not really being there if it makes sense and some kind of brain fog. Back next week for repeat endoscopy will ask can I reduce and go back on 20mg. I have never felt this odd in my life. F 31 2 months

 1  Acid reflux, indigestion The negative reviews are TRUE!!!!! Had anxious feelings all throughout taking it, chest pressure, heart palpitations, tingling/tightening/weakness/spasms in forearms and legs, tightening of both sides of my neck along the artery. Severe brain fog and headache. Pain behind eyes. Trip to ER proved it's not my heart. No History of depression, anxiety or panic attacks EVER. Makes you feel very emotional and out of your body. Do not take this drug. 1 40mg tablet taken at 930am did not leave my system until I slept it off and woke up the next morning. I agree with the other reviewers. Take a natural route to resolving your GI issues. Prebiotics, probiotics, strict diet. Heal leaky gut and reduce inflammation in your stomach by NOT EATING INFLAMMATORY FOODS. Get a food allergy test and avoid those foods. Product was RECALLED IN 2020, I believe. Open to filing lawsuit. F 37 5 days

 1  Hiatus Hernia I only took this medication as needed so it took me some time to figure out that this drug was making me ill. Developed severe anxiety symptoms, never had anxiety before, Ended up in hospital with suspected heart attack or stroke. Also suffered diarrhoea, exhaustion, severe headache, pins and needles in hands and feet. Neck pain. Tremors all over. Felt like I was dying. Still having some of the symptoms 4 months after stopping Nexium. Not anyway as severe but still frustrating to manage. Anyone else having long-term effects after stopping medication. Really scary medication. . I feel like I have developed fibromyalgia but waiting for tests in the next week to confirm. F 60 2 years

 3  Acid reflux Stopped taking Nexium 5 days ago due to burning/needle/numbness sensation on my hand, feet and upper back. Felt tired and weak. 5 days after stopping Nexium burning/needle/numbness effect has reduced significantly and I am feeling a lot less tired but still present. I am afraid it might not go away. Helped a lot in reducing the acid reflux but this medication has some serious side effects. Be cautious. M 34 21 days

 2   fatigue, lethargy, brain fog, just a very 'blah' and spaced out feeling. It helps my abdominal pain (ulcer) but I don't think it's worth it. I can't get out of my chair barely and I have zero motivation. Feeling 'not myself.' It's not exactly anxiety or depression that I am feeling though, I feel calm. Like, tranquilizer calm. 40 1 days

 3  Gastritis Long story short .... I went to the ER for upper left abdomen pain. Diagnosis came out as Gastritis. So the Doctor prescribed me to Pepcid and Protonix. After a couple days of using these drugs I started to feel nauseas and headache and then fatigue like I was coming down with a flu. Talked to my Doctor and so she switched me to Nexium. Finally got my appetite back and the Gastric pain has gotten better (not totally gone) but, the fatigue still lingers and I also developed severe anxiety and depression and dark thoughts. The weakness is unexplainable and confusing. Also I've lost weight over 10 lbs cause the lack of appetite and I feel like my muscles and bones feel weak. I'm not sure what's going on but since I started taking the medications especially nexuim thats when I started to feel these strange symptoms. I was a very healthy athlete and very health conscious person but now sometimes I can barley get out of bed let alone exercise! Please... if you have any further information about this drug or similarities please look into it or write on this site or contact me. (Bad start to 2021) M 26 14 days

 1  GERD It's great for curing the reflux but the side effects are awful. Mainly a horrible sick headache that lasts for hours. Dry mouth and sweating in the night. I felt a bit like I was coming down with flu. All ppis make me feel awful and believe me ive tried them all! This one is the best and the worst! I'm trying to live my life without them but with my GERD it flares up for no reason. Then takes me weeks to get it right again. Its a miserable condition that takes over your life Its the best for curing the reflux and I wish I could take if as I'm running out of options F 60 10 days

NEXIUM  (ESOMEPRAZOLE MAGNESIUM):  Esomeprazole is used to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems (such as acid reflux, ulcers). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. 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. Esomeprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). If you are self-treating with this medication, over-the-counter esomeprazole products are used to treat frequent heartburn (occurring 2 or more days a week). Since it may take 1 to 4 days to have full effect, these products do not relieve heartburn right away. For over-the-counter products, carefully read the package instructions to make sure the product is right for you. Check the ingredients on the label even if you have used the product before. The manufacturer may have changed the ingredients. Also, products with similar brand names may contain different ingredients meant for different purposes. Taking the wrong product could harm you.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
