Nexium is not for immediate relief of heartburn symptoms. It should begin to work within your first three doses. Ask your physician but you can usually take Maalox one hour after the Nexium for heartburn.

Good Luck,

My gi has always told me to give PPis 2 weeks and if you don't notice any difference by then it's time to try something else.

Take care,
