Nexium is a medication that may be prescribed for people suffering from heartburn and acid reflux. These tablets can also be taken to manage ulcers in the stomach and upper part of the intestine, and other problems caused by having too much acid in the stomach.

How it works

Nexium contains an active ingredient called esomeprazole. It belongs to a group of medicines called proton pump inhibitors. The medication works by reducing the amount of acid the stomach produces, which can help to manage a variety of problems, including acid reflux and heartburn.
