Nexium on empty stomach or not?
My 6yr old has been on Nexium for a year now, and we were doing great giving it to him with breakfast and before bed like the GI doc said. The pharmacist said it would work better given 1/2 hour before breakfast and dinner on an empty stomach, but since I've started that, he won't eat barely anything and looks like he gets headaches, rubs his head a lot and gets really angry. ANyone come across this? Debbie

from what i read about PPIs (nexium is a PPI) is that they work best on empty stomach. Now i am not sure about nexium but i would definitly ask the dr about his symptoms
