What is Nexium Control?
Nexium control contains the active ingredient esomeprazole. This belongs to a group of medicines known as proton pump inhibitors (PPI). This medicine can be used by adults over 18 years old for the short term treatment of reflux symptoms. This can include heartburn and acid regurgitation in adults.
How does Nexium Control work?
Nexium control works by stopping the stomach from pumping more acid into the stomach. Reducing the acid in the stomach reduces reflux/ heartburn and acid regurgitation.
Is Nexium Control effective?
Esomeprazole has been shown to be more effective in controlling acid production compared to other PPIs.
What Alternatives are there for reflux treatment?
Antacids and alginates can provide some relief for mild acid reflux. Antacids neutralise stomach acid and coat the oesophagus to lessen the burning sensation.
Alginates have been proven to be effective in treating mild reflux, although not as effectively as Nexium Control and other PPIs.
Nexium control is generally well tolerated although some people may experience:
- Stomach ache
