I've been on Nexium for about
6 weeks now, and I must say for me it's been like a miracle cure. I can now exercise on my treadmill with no problems at all, I can have the odd alcoholic drink and as long as I don't stuff myself, I can get away with most foods.
I have been taking 40mg a day, but have found at that dose it does cause weight gain for me. I have spoken to my doctor about
this and unfortunately in some people this can be a problem. I have played around with my dosage and have found that 20mg does nothing for my symptoms at all. I have discovered that you can get 10mg granules in sachets, and I'm trying 30mg a day and that seems to be working as it not only keeps the symptoms at bay, but I have lost 5 of the 7 pounds I put on whilst taking 40mg per day. It really is trial and error with this drug but for me it's the best medication you can take for reflux, and any digestive disorders.
