My doctor prescribed this to counter my persistent heartburn and incipient GERD. I’ve been popping antacids for years. I just completed the prescribed 14-day regimen. The drug has worked marvelously, eliminating daily heartburn with no side effects. I can eat or drink anything I want. I shall follow the instructions not to repeat the procedure for four months and watch my diet closely in the meantime. For readers unfamiliar with the term, GERD stands for “gastroesophageal reflux disease,” which is more commonly known as acid reflux. Most people experience symptoms of GERD at some point in their lives. These symptoms include a burning sensation in the chest ( heartburn ), cough , indigestion , nausea and regurgitation , among others.
Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens. If you are self-treating, tell your doctor if your heartburn persists after 14 days or if you need to use this medication more than once every 4 months. The risk of side effects goes up over time. Ask your doctor how long you should take this medication. If you think you on bing may have a serious medical problem, get medical help right away. If you are self-treating with this medication, over-the-counter esomeprazole products are used to treat frequent heartburn (occurring 2 or more days a week). Since it may take 1 to 4 days to have full effect, these products do not relieve heartburn right away.
