Description

Acid reflux can cause unpleasant symptoms such as heartburn, a painful sensation in the chest, leading to acid regurgitation.

Nexium Control is for the short-term treatment of reflux symptoms. It contains the active ingredient esomeprazole that belongs to a group of medication called ‘proton pump inhibitors’ and reduces acid production by the stomach.

How to use Nexium Control Gastro-Resistant Tablets 

  1. Swallow whole do not chew or crush the tablet.
  2. Mix the tablet with a glass of still water (no other liquids) until tablet breaks and drink immediately. Rinse the cup out with more water and drink this to ensure the full dose is taken.
  • Leave mixture for no longer than 30 minutes
  • Do not chew any small solid pieces left in the mixture

Symptoms may not improve until 2-3 days after treatment

The maximum treatment length is up to 14 days, if symptoms change, get worse or persist, contact your doctor.
