Hello Niki,


Taking Nexium on an empty stomach allows the medication to be the most effective. Are you having trouble timing the dose with your meal schedule? This is common. See if you can take it within 30-60 minutes of a meal. No time at all? It is best to take it right before the meal rather than missing the dose altogether.


I hope this answered your question.

Let me know.
