Nexpro 40 MG Description

Nexpro 40 tablet treats acid reflux disease and stomach and intestinal ulcers. It is also helpful to eradicate a bacteria called H.Pylori to reduce the risk of intestinal ulcers. Additionally, it is used in treating a condition called Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Zollinger-Ellison syndrome is characterised by excessive stomach acid production due to tumours in the pancreas. Nexpro 40 tablet contains esomeprazole as the active ingredient.

Some other medicines that contain esomeprazole are Esogress 40mg tablet, Raciper 40mg tablet, Esmetru 40mg tablet, Neksium 40mg tablet, and Sompraz 40 tablet.

You should also keep an eye out for foods and beverages that appear to cause acidity-related problems. Try to eat smaller and more frequent meals, eat less oily and spicy foods, avoid alcohol, and drink plenty of water. Contact your doctor or a nutritionist for more personalised dietary changes.

This medicine should be taken in doses and duration as advised by the doctor or pharmacist. It should preferably be taken on an empty stomach one hour before a meal. Do not miss any dose or take it more often than your doctor prescribes.
