Can I just change my proton-pump inhibitor? That’s a question patients with acid reflux and heartburn ask me all the time. Whether for insurance purposes, cost, or ease of refilling, can you just switch from one proton-pump inhibitor to another?

Nexium (esomeprazole) certainly wins when it comes to marketing.

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
