What’s the Best Heartburn Treatment?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - June 14, 2016

Over the counter medications for heartburn and GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) come in two flavors: H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) like Prilosec (omeprazole) and Nexium (esomeprazole).

If you are struggling with heartburn or reflux and want to start treating the symptoms on your own, you can start with an H2 blocker.

Here’s what you need to know.

What should I start with?

With mild symptoms occurring less than twice a week you can start with a low dose H2 blocker like Zantac, Pepcid, or Tagamet once a day. See More

2015 In Review: The Good(Rx) and Bad

Elizabeth Davis - December 29, 2015

The GoodRx Pharmacist - October 30, 2015

Generic Nexium Now Approved

The GoodRx Pharmacist - February 02, 2015

Nexium (esomeprazole) is indicated for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)—better known as acid reflux or heartburn. The approval of generic esomeprazole comes following the arrival of over-the-counter Nexium 24HR last year, and could mean even lower prices and more flexibility when it comes to treating GERD.

Gastroesophageal reflux occurs when the acid in your stomach comes back up through your esophagus and irritates its lining. See More

Hoping for Cheaper Nexium and Valcyte? You May Be Waiting a While Longer

Elizabeth Davis - November 07, 2014

The FDA has revoked two tentative generic drug approvals from manufacturer Ranbaxy Laboratories, for heartburn med Nexium (esomeprazole magnesium) and antiviral Valcyte (valganciclovir). Ranbaxy has had tentative approval to make these generics since 2008, but the final approvals were delayed due to long-standing issues with quality and compliance.

Earlier this year, the FDA banned all output from Ranbaxy’s India-based facilities due to quality concerns (see our previous post here), leaving only their New Jersey plant to produce highly anticipated generics like valsartan (generic Diovan). See More

Nexium (Esomeprazole Magnesium) vs Esomeprazole Strontium: What’s the Difference?

The GoodRx Pharmacist - July 24, 2014

What is GERD?

GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease is more commonly known as heartburn. Heartburn is a form of indigestion in which your stomach acid comes back up into the esophagus. See More

Nexium, Prilosec, Zegerid: Which Non-Prescription Heartburn Med Is Best?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - May 29, 2014

Nexium 24HR is now over the counter, joining the other proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) available without a prescription. This class of medications work well for the treatment of heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and gastric ulcers. Nexium as a brand name drug made over 6 billion dollars in one year so does that mean that it’s better than the others? Um, no.

Several PPIs are available over the counter: Zegerid OTC (omeprazole with sodium bicarbonate), Prilosec OTC (omeprazole OTC) and Prevacid 24HR (lansoprazole 24HR) and now Nexium 24HR (esomeprazole). See More
