Nexium (Esomeprazole) for Gastroesophageal reflux disease and heartburn disease?
The tablets and injection of this drug contain the active ingredient esomeprazole which come under a type of medication known as proton pump inhibitors. Proton pumps already exists in the cells, lining the stomach where stomach acid is produced by these cells. This drug works by halting the action of the proton pumps thus reducing the production of stomach acid.
The stomach produces acid which aids in the digestive process and is considered to be a normal part of the function. However, when medical conditions like acid reflux or gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) where the acid acid goes back into the esophagus also known as the food pipe. It is here where all the pain and burning sensation occurs which is known as heartburn. The inflammation and irritation of the lining of the food pipe are also the result of the acid.
Nexium (Esomeprazole) helps in reducing the production of acid in the stomach and thus the acid flowing back into the esophagus is also reduced. It can also be used for the long term treatment in people who have recovered from esophagitis since the suppressing of the stomach acid also prevents the condition from occurring again.
