Dry mouth is one of the side effects with Nexium.  Mine is severe and I think it is causing dry nasal passages and dry eye as well.  Has anyone else experienced this?

How are you doing?  Are you still experiencing dryness?  If so, ask your Dr to switch medications.
I, too, was on Nexium, but experienced abdominal pain/diarrhea as my 'side effect'.  I've since been prescribed Zegerid, which is working very well for me.  It's a PPI in powder form, you mix with water and take it. 
Hope you are feeling better!


And days go by
I can feel them flying
Like a hand out the window in the wind
And cars go by
Yeah it's all we've been given
So you better start living right now
Cause days go by
