Nexpro 20mg is a medication that is helpful in reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach. It treats acid reflux, peptic ulcer disease, and other problems present in the food pipe.

This medicine is also effective in preventing and treating stomach ulcers. GERD is a long-term condition in which you have heartburn constantly, instead of occasionally.

This condition happens because a muscle above the stomach relaxes very much and permits stomach contents to come back up in your esophagus and mouth. Nexpro 20mg contains esomeprazole as its active ingredient which belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors.

How does Nexpro 20mg work?

Nexpro is a proton pump inhibitor and works by decreasing the amount of acid that your stomach makes and relieving the pain linked with acid reflux and heartburn. Along with the medicine, you also need to make some lifestyle changes that will contribute to decreasing the symptoms of GERD.

Avoid eating food items that trigger heartburn, eat small and more frequent meals, and lose weight if you are overweight.
