    How long after eating should I take Nexium?

    I have been taking Nexium several years -- 40 mg. per day.  The instructions say to take the medication 1 hour before or 2 - 3 hours after a meal.  There have been times when I find it difficult to avoid eating for 2 - 3 hours before taking Nexium and allowing an hour before I eat again.  How necessary is this?  Would Nexium still work if unable to keep to those time structures?  In other words, can there be some flexibility?
