Buy Nexium Control Online in the UK
The active ingredient in Nexium Control is esomeprazole. It is a member of the class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors.
They function by reducing the quantity of acid your stomach secretes.
Adults take this medication to temporarily relieve reflux symptoms (for example, heartburn and acid regurgitation).
Reflux is the overflow of stomach acid into the foodpipe, which can cause inflammation and discomfort. This could result in symptoms like heartburn, which is a burning sensation that travels up to the throat, and a bad taste in your mouth (acid regurgitation).
Nexium Control isn't intended to provide instant relief. Before you start to feel better, you might need to take the capsules for 2-3 days straight.
After 14 days, if you still feel the same or worse, you need to see a doctor.
No questionnaire is needed and this medication can be posed through your door via the 1st Class Post option.
Always take this medicine exactly as described in the Patient Information Leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist have told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
How much to take
- The recommended dose is one tablet a day.
- Do not take more than this recommended dose of one tablet (20 mg) a day, even if you don’t feel an improvement immediately.
- You may need to take the tablets for 2 or 3 days in a row before your reflux symptoms (for example, heartburn and acid regurgitation) get better.
- The treatment length is up to 14 days.
- When your reflux symptoms have completely gone you should stop taking this medicine.
- If your reflux symptoms get worse or do not improve after taking this medicine for 14 days in a row, you should consult a doctor.
If you have persistent or longstanding, frequently recurring symptoms even after treatment with this medicine, you should contact your doctor.
Taking this medicine
- You can take your tablet at any time of the day either with food or on an empty stomach.
- Swallow your tablet whole with a glass of water. Do not chew or crush the tablet. This is because the tablet contains coated pellets, which stop the medicine from being broken down by the acid in your stomach. It is important not to damage the pellets.
Alternative method of taking this medicine
- Put the tablet in a glass of still (non-fizzy) water. Do not use any other liquids.
- Stir until the tablet breaks up (the mixture will not be clear) then drink the mixture straight away or within 30 minutes. Always stir the mixture just before drinking it.
- To make sure that you have drunk all of the medicine, rinse the glass very well with half a glass of water and drink it. The solid pieces contain the medicine — do not chew or crush them.
