Nexium relieves heartburn as well as other symptoms a result of the backflow of stomach acid in to the canal towards the stomach (the esophagus)—a condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease. It is also indicated to heal the injury (erosive esophagitis) that reflux disease may cause.
Prescribed along with the antibiotics amoxicillin and clarithromycin, Nexium can be utilized to treat the infection that creates most duodenal ulcers (ulcers occurring just beyond the exit in the stomach).
Nexium functions by reducing the production of stomach acid.
