Anyone else taking nexium? If helps me tolerate a lot more foods and reduces gas pain. Has anyone else taken this drug and how long can you safely do so?

I took it for a while....and it really helped me. It was my insurence that forced me to stop and take other meds. I have heard there is more research now of it working the best. I don't know of its safety after longterm usage. I hope someone else can help you with that one.

I am on Nexium for Gerd and GI problems. However, nexium isn't working for me at all. Chelsey

I tried Nexium, but needed to take it at the same time as my birth control pill (in the a.m., before eating). It hampered absorption of the pill, and all of those ugly PMS symptoms came right back! Not for me...IC & fibromyalgia since ~'77. Osteoarthritis since ~'88. Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (autoimmune blood disease) since '96. IBS for who knows how long. Interstim implant 2/04, revised 6/06, replaced 11/12. Antibodies to thyroid since at least '92 (finally diagnosed & treated 1/06). Asthma & vocal chord dysfunction 12/06. Hypoglycemia '07. Perimenopausal at 37, menopause at 45. Pituitary & adrenal failure. Osteopenia. Grade 3 sacral fracture by S3-S4 at age 12, healed 14mm out of place.
