It took 8 weeks for the Nexium to start working, but when it did I started having a real dry mouth and throat. Haven't noticed weight gain yet, but I seem to be eating a lot. Have any of you had side affects after going off Nexium? Wishing you all good health.
The only side effect I had when I discontined Nexium in 2004 was the return of acid reflux. I didn't seem to gain much weight while on it but I had to make an effort..food tastes good when your stomach isn't all torn up. I just started on Nexium again last night so it really hasn't taken effect yet.
