About Nexium

Nexium is the brand name for esomeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor that works by lowering the amount of acid produced by the stomach. In addition to treating heartburn, Nexium is also used to prevent the development of esophageal cancer. The drug is taken orally, typically once daily. It is administered in capsule form, and is usually taken for 4 to 8 weeks.[5] [2]

As with many medications, Nexium may cause adverse effects in some individuals. Common Nexium side effects include headache, pain in the stomach, gas, and dry mouth. More serious adverse effects include problems breathing, fatigue, irregular heartbeat, problems swallowing, seizures, dizziness, and blisters on the skin.[2]

Nexium Free Samples, Coupons, Patient Assistance Programs and Offers

  • Free Nexium samples may be available, upon request, through a patient's doctor or healthcare provider. Companies like AstraZeneca typically offer healthcare providers with free samples of their new and exisiting medications. These samples are available to physicians upon request through AstraZeneca's online sampling center.[6]
  • The Nexium Savings Card helps Nexium patients save on up to 12 months worth of Nexium prescriptions. Patients may save up to $50 on their prescription copay with this program. Those with prescription drug coverage will be asked to pay the first $18 of their copay, while those with no insurance will have the first $50 of their out-of-pocket expenses covered by AstraZenica.[7]
  • Nexium patient assistance programs provide eligible patients with free Nexium for up to a year. The AZ&Me program offers free Nexium to patients who do not have prescription drug coverage from private or government programs, are a U.S. resident or have a Green Card or Work Visa, and who meet certain income requirements.[8] [9]
  • Another way to save on Nexium is through online pharmacies. According to the official Nexium website, patients who purchase their Nexium from these online pharmacies may save up to $100 on a 90-day supply. In order to determine which pharmacies offer discounted Nexium, patients can speak with their insurance company.[10]
