    Uses :

    Esomeprazole uses include treating signs and symptoms of conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and gastric ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori. These conditions occur due to increased acid production in the stomach.

    Mode of drug action


    Esomeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor. Proton pumps are present in the lining of the stomach, they produce acid during the digestion process. If there is an excess production of acid due to pathological reasons, ulcer formation or acid reflux may occur. Esomeprazole reduces the excess acid production in the stomach by inhibiting the proton pumps.

    What are the common side effects?

    The common side effects are headache, diarrhea, nausea, flatulence, dry mouth, chills, cough, indigestion, dizziness, and loss of appetite.
