I have been on Nexium for 1 week and a half and I noticed that I have gained some weight on this medication and my eating habbits haven't changed at all. Will the weight come off automatically and return to my old weight when I stop Nexium?

Thanks guys as this is making me really upset.

Hai Hai,
Good Morning.   Weight gain is not a common side effect of Nexium (esomeprazole). According to the prescribing information for Nexium, weight gain was reported by less than 1% of patients in clinical trials. Consult your healthcare provider for any changes in your medical condition, including unusual weight gain. Do not stop or change the amount of medication you take without talking to your healthcare provider first.

I gained weight taking Nexium, I put on nearly half a stone in a couple of months. I have cut back from 40mg to 30mg but it's a struggle to keep the weight off.
