GERD Home > Will My Medicines React With Nexium?

Nexium may increase the level of tacrolimus in the blood. Your healthcare provider may want to monitor your tacrolimus levels more closely when you start or stop Nexium, particularly for the oral form of tacrolimus (rather than for the skin ointment form).
It is possible that Nexium could increase your risk of bleeding due to warfarin. Your doctor may choose to monitor your INR and prothrombin time more frequently, and adjust your warfarin dosage accordingly.

Final Thoughts

It is possible that not all drug interactions with Nexium were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your doctor about any specific drug interactions with Nexium that may apply to you.
