Hi all,

I went to my primary care doctor yesterday after suffering for over a month with horrible GERD, in spite of taking 2 30mg Prevacids per day. She gave me samples of Nexium 40mg. capsules and told me to take them twice a day. Last night I woke up feeling awful, with terrible abdominal pain and feeling jittery and wired... I am still feeling this way now, and haven't taken any today. I called the pharmacist and he said that was too much. For the first time in years, I didn't experience any reflux at all, but I feel like I've taken antihistamines. When will this go away? When should I take another pill? Has this ever happened to anyone else? Please help...

Hi poobear,

I am finally feeling less hyper = lol, a day and a half later. My reflux was still under control last night! Maybe I could try just one of these every other day or something? I called my doc's office and they said that wasn't too high of a dose, so I called the gastro doc's office, and they said that was to high if you have never taken Nexium before. It's weird, because my Prevacid never caused any side effects at all.
