Thank you for your question! There shouldn't be any problem with you taking the fish oil or drinking alcohol while taking Nexium. However, in some people, alcohol can cause acid reflux to be worse. So while there isn't a drug interaction between Nexium and alcohol, it may cause you to have more symptoms. You can read more about Nexium here, and you can go to www.healthline.com/druginteractions in the future if you have questions about possible drug interactions.
Best of luck,
There is no listed warning about Nexium and alcohol but in most cases alcohol will magnify the effects of medications. I enjoy my red wine and it can exacerbate my symptoms that I need to take Nexium for - so, I will take my Nexium a few hours before dinner and have my red wine about an hour after dinner. That way food and time cushion the effects somewhat. I don't recommend fatty foods, though, because they can wreak havoc on your symptoms. I have not had any ill side effects from red wine if used much later.
With your vitamins, try taking them at another different time. I usually take mine in the morning with breakfast and have not experienced any problems. The only risk with vitamins is if they build up in your body from taking too many. Depending on what you take, they can be water soluble or fat soluble - the latter of which can build up in your body. Remember to drink enough water.
I have wine for a couple of hours but have to be sensible because of my condition, and when I take my 40mg before my meal at night as soon as I have finished eating I can hardly keep my eyes open and makes me so tired I am in bed at 5.45pm. I also have 'gaviscon' to stop vomiting which works, but still I have to go bed. geoff
