Comment:
The nexium helped my reflux for 24 years. I was devastated to find out that nexium eats up the calcium I was taking for bone density when I entered the pre meni years. There really should be some warning labels or better monitoring during menapause. Clearly the Dr. & company has neglected to educate the patient. I was taken off this due to the findings of osteopenia.

Such relief was unexpected.
