About NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION

NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION belongs to the class of drugs known as Proton pump inhibitor which reduces the amount of acid your stomach makes. It treats gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), stomach ulcer and Zollinger Ellison syndrome (overproduction of acid due to pancreatic tumour).

NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION helps in reducing the stomach acid by blocking the actions of an enzyme (H+/K+ ATPase or gastric proton pump). This proton pump lies in the cells of the stomach wall responsible for the release of gastric acid secretion damaging tissues in the food pipe, stomach, and duodenum. NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION prevents the release of stomach acid and relieves symptoms of food pipe lining inflammation (esophagitis), and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or heartburn.

NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION can be prescribed to the adults and children aged 12 years and over. It is better to take NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION an hour before a meal. NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Do not chew, crush, or break it. Besides this, NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION is also available in liquid form for those who cannot swallow tablets or capsules. Do not take NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION for more than 4 weeks of duration without consulting the doctor.

FAQs

No. Gas and acidity are two different common discomforts. Acidity is caused when improper functioning of the valve (sphincter) is located at the junction of the stomach and food pipe. As a result stomach acid backflows and enters the upper part of the food pipe causing heartburn. On the other hand, gas is the result of the digestion of the food and drinks eliminating gases like carbon dioxide, hydrogen, nitrogen, methane, etc. from the body.

Prolonged intake of NEKSIUM 40MG INJECTION may lead to atrophic gastritis (inflammation of stomach cells), Vitamin B12 deficiency and weakening of bones or osteoporosis (loss of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D).
