My doctor prescribed me Nexium 3-4 weeks ago after he found out I had GERD during my endoscopy. For 2 weeks I was fine, heartburn was gone, it was great. Now all of a sudden I am having heart burn again, it's been at least once a day, every day this week. Has anyone else had this happen? Am I not giving the medicine enough time to work? I am on 40 mg which I take an hour before dinner.

Hi BumBum,

I feel that the best person to help you with this question would be your physician. Each person reacts to the meds in their own individual way.

Take care.
