Esomeprazole (20mg) for gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GORD)

I take esomeprazole for terrible acid reflux and it works brilliantly. I've got HMS and sometimes my stomach valve doesn't close properly. It comes it fits and starts, sometimes nothing for weeks and then days, weeks or months of it every night. I also have omeprazole but I take them alternately as that's what works best for me. Luckily I don't have any problem with side effects! And if I don't...

Esomeprazole (40mg) for reflux

2 x 40 mg per day is not enough to completely neutralise the heartburn. Still get stomach pains with it. Recently been given Sucralfate which seems to help a bit.

Esomeprazole (40mg) for allergy

Was already allergic to Omeprazol. Omeprazol is basically the same as Esomeprazol. Also got really really ill from Esomeprazol. Trembling and weak hands, little feeling in my legs, dizziness then after a tingling feeling in my legs and feet I was afraid to walk, could hardly walk any more in the end. After coping with all these side effects for a few weeks we finally came to a conclusion. Esome...

Esomeprazole (40mg) for diabetes type 2

I've been taking this medicine for years and can't say if it helps. Still had stomach pains. After investigation by the gastro-enterologist it transpired I had delayed digestion. This is why I got this medicine.
