Can I Take My Vitamins W/nexium

can I take my vitamins at the same time w/nexium or do I have to waite to take them (how long after taking nexium can I take my vitamins....)

Answer

This is a question that is best asked of your doctor or pharmacist. In general the biggest concern of taking anti-reflux medications with any other medication is that the reflux meds can block the absorption of the other medication. Nexium though is an acid reducer that works for a 24 hour period so taking it with your vitamins shouldn't be an issue - whereas taking a vitamin with an anti-acid (such as TUMS) could block your ability to absorb the vitamin.
