Comment:
I was on Nexium for several years to reduce esophageal errosion and excess stomach acid...and it worked, taking one 40mg capsule per day.

After two months, stomach acid was coming up my esophagus to the tongue causing sores on the tongue and burning the mucous membrane in my mouth and nose. Needles ... Show Full Comment
