Were you looking for information about Nexium? Nexuim is a common misspelling of Nexium.
Nexium® (esomeprazole magnesium) is approved to treat the symptoms of several medical conditions involving the stomach, intestines, and esophagus. Because this prescription medication is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), it helps to decrease the amount of acid in your stomach. As a result, it can help treat conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), erosive esophagitis, and H. pylori infections. Make sure to seek immediate medical attention if you think you may have overdosed on this medication. Some signs of a Nexium overdose can include confusion, blurred vision, and an increased heart rate.
