I have never tried Nexium. The doctor first had me on the perscription for Pepecid which did not work at all it seemed to make it worse. After I called the doctors office they wrote me a six month perscription for Prilosec. I know though people react differently to different Meds. All I can say is I have been on this for two days and I am feeling better.
Last night I had prime rib for dinner and the swallowing issue seemed like it had improved because I know meat and bread are usually the difficult things to swallow when you are having problems and it seemed to go down with no problems (knock on wood it stays like that). I think I have a hernia and have decided no matter how well I feel after the first of the year I am going to get scoped. I just need to know so I am not walking around worrying all the time that it is something serious.
Well thanks for listening
