My husband has had Acid Reflux for 35 years.  He was put on Nexium (has tried other meds) which definately takes care of the heartburn.  After at least 5 years on Nexium he has come up with anemia (we don't know that they are connected).  Has anyone else had this experience?  Have you found a solution and if so, what?  Hubby is on iron replacement but it may not be doing any good.  Our next stop is a Hematologist.  I'm okay on the outside, terrified on the inside.

Hmmmm my doc recently said my iron is low and he didn't know why. I wonder if it is from the nexium I have taken for 5 years. They thought mine could have been from being so sick with asthma, bronchitis and laryingitis. It will be interesting to see how my blood test comes out for my preop on 12/22.Barb

My doctor said it can affect all the minerals absorbed by the acid in your stomach.
