I don't want to go on it long term, but I'm considering trying it. My symptoms aren't extreme. I just want something to try other than popping antacids. Reason I'm considering it is I've been traveling for business a lot the last few weeks, and sleeping on hard mattresses, which screw up my body position. Last night I woke up on my stomach with a small reflux attack, and while I went back to sleep and woke up fine, got a good night's rest, had breakfast, etc, I still had a twinge of an acid taste all morning. So I stopped at a Walgreens and got some Pepcid Complete, since there weren't any tums on the shelf. I didn't like the immediate effect (big gas bubble formed instantly in my stomach, with some adrenaline rushes and one quick stomach spasm, which all went away when I burped a few times), but the last few hours have been heaven on earth. So, I want to see what kind of heaven Nexium can provide.
Anybody have a good experience with it? I picked up a box of the Nexium 24 hr, but haven't taken any yet. I don't need it as a long term solution. I'm losing weight at a pretty steady clip, and eating very healthy. I think that will actually do more than the Nexium. But I was considering it for a short term bridge.
