Were you looking for information about Nexium? Nexxium is a common misspelling of Nexium.
 
Nexium® (esomeprazole magnesium), a type of proton pump inhibitor (PPI), is used for treating several conditions involving the stomach, esophagus, and intestines. By decreasing the amount of acid produced in the stomach, Nexium can help to treat conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), erosive esophagitis, and H. pylori infections. However, Nexium is not suitable for everyone. Before starting treatment with this prescription medication, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medications you are taking (including supplements and vitamins), as well as any other medical conditions you have. Possible side effects of Nexium include nausea, diarrhea, and headaches.
