How does Esomeprazole (Generic Nexium) treat?

Esomeprazole (Generic Nexium) contains the active ingredient esomeprazole, which is a type of medicine called a proton pump inhibitor.

Proton pumps are found on cells that line the stomach and are used by these cells to produce stomach acid. Esomeprazole (Generic Nexium) works by inhibiting the action of the Proton pumps, and this reduces the production of stomach acid.

Acid is produced in the stomach as a normal part of the digestive process. However, in the condition known as gastro-oesophageal reflux disease or acid reflux, this acid is allowed to flow back into the food pipe (oesophagus), where it causes pain and a burning sensation known as heartburn. The acid can also irritate and cause inflammation of the lining of the foodpipe (reflux oesophagitis).
