Description

Details

Nexium Control contains the active substance esomeprazole. It belongs to a group of medicines called ‘proton pump inhibitors’. They work by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces

This medicine is used in adults for the short-term treatment of re­flux symptoms for example:

  • Heartburn
  • Acid reflux

Reflux is the backflow of acid from the stomach into the gullet (“food pipe”) that may become inflamed and painful. This may cause you symptoms such as a painful sensation in the chest rising up to your throat (heartburn) and a sour taste in the mouth (acid regurgitation).
