Nexium is used to treat heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and ulcers. Nexium is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) that gave many patients relief from these afflictions when initial remedies such as Tums (a calcium carbonate antacid) or Pepcid (an H2 blocker) did not provide the relief they wanted.
Nexium is available as both, an over the counter medication and one you need a prescription for. Surprisingly, Prilosec (omeprazole) was the first of the PPIs to be made available to consumers.
