Nexpro 20 mg is prescribed for patients with Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and similar conditions like Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. This medication is also prescribed for the treatment of erosive esophagitis.
Esomeprazole Magnesium belongs to a family of proton pump inhibitors; Esomeprazole (the main active component of Nexpro) is very beneficial in treating stomach problems related to gastritis and acid reflux problems.
This drug is a proton pump inhibitor that reduces hydrochloric acid or gastric acid secretion in the stomach through the walls. This HCl is required for digestion and is released by the parietal cells in the walls of the stomach. The proton pump induces the secretion of the acid. Esomeprazole blocks these pumps, reducing the amount of acid in the stomach and the acidity problems.
