Introduction of Nexpro (Esomeprazole)

Nexpro (esomeprazole) is a proton pump inhibitor that decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach. Nexpro is used to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other conditions involving excessive stomach acid such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. It is also used to promote healing of erosive esophagitis (damage to your esophagus caused by stomach acid). Nexpro may also be given to prevent gastric ulcer caused by infection with helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), or by the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Nexpro is not for immediate relief of heartburn symptoms.

Uses of Nexpro (Esomeprazole)

Esomeprazole (not omeprazole) is used to treat acidity (dyspepsia), gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD, frequent persistent heartburn, regurgitation or flow of bitter fluid into mouth, swallowing problems, and upper abdominal pain), ulcers in the stomach due to excessive acid production, infection (H. pylori) or pain-killer use (e.g. NSAIDs), and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (tumors in the pancreas or the upper part of the small intestine, which may lead to increase acid secretion in the digestive tube).

Esomeprazole belongs to class of medications called proton pump inhibitors. It blocks the activity of the proton pumps in the stomach wall that produce acid, thereby reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
