Introduction

Human body needs acid to digest the food adequately. However, presence of too much acid in the stomach may damage the esophagus, a tube that carries food. Deposition of acid into esophagus is known as acid reflux. In order to get respite from the condition, generic Nexium is recommended by health professionals.

Sometimes, gastric ulcer is caused due to infection or usage of NSAIDs. In such cases, Generic Nexium is given for preventing the condition.
