I am into my third week of weaning off nexium and I am wondering if anyone else experienced constipation while in the weening  process.  I know that I am eating less but I am still eating vegetables, fruit and fish, just not as much of it. I have even added a probiotic and now for the last week I am having issues.  Maybe it is just part of the process,  I am now taking 20 mg. nexium every 3rd day.  I am using DGL and ACV on the days I don't take nexium and I'm doing pretty well, first couple of weeks were rough but it is getting better.  Thanks

Hi cougar1,i have stopped nexium a few times in the past and found within aweek it was out of my system,i had no problems,infact i feel great off the meds,but after a couple of months the reflux is back as bad as ever.Ive now just come off pantoprazole a week now after a lot of bad side effects.I did not wean myself off, i just stopped! i get by on Gaviscon after every meal,just three small meals a day but i think the reflux happens a night wether i eat or not because i wake up with a sore throat.Hope you can get off the drugs,i hate them! Baz.
