Esomeprazole: What you need to know about;
It’s mode of action.
Esomeprazole is the newest proton inhibitor that works by decreasing the amount of acid produced in your stomach and increasing the pH level in your intestines. It does so by binding to sulfhydryl groups found on cysteines, an enzyme with two hydrogen atoms and one potassium ion located at its surface called (H+, K+)-ATPase; this leads to inhibition of both basal as well as stimulated gastric secretion from parietal cells no matter what stimulus you use. Anyone who has experienced heartburn knows that it is an unpleasant feeling. When you are experiencing symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or other stomach issues, doctors may prescribe Esomeprazole to help alleviate the situation.

What are the uses of Esomeprazole?
Esomeprazole is primarily prescribed to treat conditions like heartburn, heal ulcers, and other conditions where too much stomach acid may back up into your esophagus or small intestine and cause problems.
It can also be used to treat ulcers of the stomach and intestines, erosive esophagitis, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, and stomach acid hypersecretory conditions. The medication can be taken on an empty stomach with water or food but should not be taken with milk or antacids containing calcium carbonate because this will decrease its effectiveness.

Esomeprazole: Side effects and How to take it properly
Esomeprazole is not just for adults, and children can also take it. However, the risks associated with this medicine might make it inappropriate to prescribe in some instances and situations, like if you have liver problems or cannot absorb nutrients due to your diet schedule, which contains much sugar (glucose/sucrose)
The most frequent adverse effects are heartburn, nausea, gas, constipation, headache, and stomach discomfort. Taking Esomeprazole with food can help prevent some of these side effects from happening. However, if you take more than 1 dose of this medication per day for 14 days or longer consecutively without talking to your doctor first about it, you may experience problems like inflammation of the pancreas (acute pancreatitis).
You can take Esomeprazole with or without food, but the best way to avoid harmful side effects and be sure that your body has time to absorb it thoroughly to prevent digestive issues such as nausea or vomiting from kicking into high gear; while you’re at work! It’s usual practice during the first few months on medication like this one-a dose early AM followed by another just before bedtime (or vice versa). If there are problems swallowing tablets whole -put them underwater if needed until they start breaking apart-, then drink straight away, so those ingredients reach the bloodstream quickly; otherwise, absorption will happen more slowly, which leads to unwanted side effects.
If you have problems swallowing capsules, open up Esomeprazole and empty the contents into a glass. Mix with some water to drink straight away or keep at room temperature for an hour before drinking it all together in one go without mixing any more! Then, fill up another glass of just plain old tap H2O, so there’s no medicine left behind on your dinner table after taking this medication.
