What is Nexium used for?

Nexium is a commonly prescribed medication that is used to treat symptoms of Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It is also used to treat other conditions that involve excess stomach acid such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Your body needs stomach acid for digestion. However, when the muscle between your stomach and esophagus doesn’t close properly, this acid can end up in your esophagus. This causes the burning feeling in your chest and throat associated with GERD.
