I saw a news item today and wanted to pass this one along to you...Hugs, Teri tongue
"The study -- published in the September issue of The American Journal of Gastroenterology -- demonstrated that effective acid suppression therapy with a proton pump inhibitor, with either 20 or 40 milligrams of esomeprazole, relieved nighttime heartburn symptoms and GERD-related sleep disturbances."

Thanks Teri

....I hope I won't need to take them but maybe they'll be more effective than the ones I've tried in the past!

interesting to see that they're publishing this now ... anyone whose come in contact with a Nexium rep for the past few years could tell you the exact same thing. i think AZ probably engaged in the study because they're competition's key selling point was "night time GERD" ... a medication that i've found is as good as taking a TUMS.

keep healthy,
