Is Nexium the Best Medication for My Stomach Issues?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - May 12, 2015

Yet somehow, Nexium is still the fourth best selling brand name prescription drug in the United States. Why is that? Well, purple does well with audiences which is why drug companies market their drugs in purple packaging . See More
