    why isn't my nexium working anymore? I have taken it with very good results.  I have to admit that I have gained weight and ate all kinds of food. I also drank a lot of diet soda as well.  I am trying to change my diet, avoid trigger foods and eat smaller meals.  I am a little concerned of what might be wrong.  Without any health insurance going to the doctor is a bit of a hardship. When should I start feeling better?

    that's a good question. My medicine stopped working on me too and I was on it ( Aciphex) on and off for 4 years and now my reflux is so bad that it has caused acid laryngitis. chest pain and pressure a feeling of fullness. My MD is changing my medication and I will be trying Prevacid's new Drug, Kapidex 60 mg once a day. ask your doctor about that one. I hope it works for me and others out there too. I never had any complaints about the aciphex it used to work and no side effects, I am always concerned about starting a New Drug.

      thank you for responding to my question about my nexium. I have been concerened about why it stopped working after having good results.  I am trying to loose some weight and changing my eating habits and I am praying that this will be enough.  If I have to I will see my doctor and ask about the Kapidex 60 mg. Thank you so much for responding to my concern.  I feel better knowing that other people are having the same thing and it isn't just happening to me.  I hope you have good results with the new medicine.  Thanks so much momof5js
