Instructions for taking Nexium say take on empty stomach with glass of water and wait at least 1 hour before eating. Clear enough. We are usually up by 6am and after an hour or so we're off for our 5 mile walk. It's at least 9am before we eat anything.
I like a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. Yesterday when I took my Nexium I immediately had my usual cup. This morning I did the same but it struck me that maybe having the coffee would interfere with the Nexium. I googled the question and found only one site which said no coffee, tea, soft drinks, juice, or dairy for an least 30 minutes after the Nexium dose. I called the offical Nexium contact line and the nurse said she couldn't find any interactions with coffee. Most sites only say on empty stomach and wait 1 hour before eating.
Anyone know the answer? I suppose I could have my coffee first thing, wait 30 minutes to an hour and then take my Nexium just before leaving for the walk.
