What is the most important information I should know about Esomeprazole?

  • Do not use Esomeprazole if you have an allergy to a benzimidazole medication such as albendazole (Albenza), or mebendazole (Vermox).
  • Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you have ever had any type of liver disease. You may not be able to use Esomeprazole, or you may need a dosage adjustment or special tests during treatment.
  • Take this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by your doctor. Your symptoms may get better before your treatment is completed.
  • Do not crush, break, or open a delayed-release capsule. Swallow the pill whole. It is specially made to release medicine slowly in the body. Breaking or opening the pill would cause too much of the drug to be released at one time.

What is Esomeprazole?

  • Esomeprazole decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
  • Esomeprazole is used to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and also to promote healing of erosive esophagitis (damage to your esophagus caused by stomach acid).
  • Esomeprazole may also be given to prevent gastric ulcer caused by infection with helicobacter pylori, or by the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
  • Esomeprazole may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking Esomeprazole?

  • Do not use Esomeprazole if you have an allergy to a benzimidazole medication such as albendazole (Albenza) or mebendazole (Vermox).
  • Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you have ever had any type of liver disease. You may not be able to use Esomeprazole, or you may need a dosage adjustment or special tests during treatment.
  • FDA pregnancy category B. This medication is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment.
  • It is not known whether Esomeprazole passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

How should I take Esomeprazole?

  • Take this medication exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take the medication in larger amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor. This medicine is usually given for 4 to 8 weeks only. Your doctor may recommend a second course of treatment if you need additional healing time.
  • Take each dose with a full glass (8 ounces) of water.
  • Esomeprazole should be taken at least one hour before a meal. Follow your doctor's instructions.
  • Do not crush, break, or open a delayed-release capsule. Swallow the pill whole. It is specially made to release medicine slowly in the body. Breaking or opening the pill would cause too much of the drug to be released at one time.
  • You may open the delayed-release capsule and sprinkle the medicine into a spoonful of pudding or applesauce to make swallowing easier. Swallow this mixture right away without chewing. Do not save the mixture for later use. Discard the empty capsule.
  • Esomeprazole can be given through a nasogastric (NG) feeding tube. Open the capsule and sprinkle the medicine into a 60-milliliter syringe. Mix in 50 milliliters of water. Place the plunger into the syringe and shake the mixture well. Make sure there are no medicine granules stuck in the tip of the syringe. Attach the syringe to the NG tube and push the plunger down to empty the syringe into the tube. Then flush the tube with more water to wash the contents down.
  • It is important to use Esomeprazole regularly to get the most benefit. Get your prescription refilled before you run out of medicine completely.
  • Take this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by your doctor. Your symptoms may get better before your treatment is completed.
  • Store Esomeprazole at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I miss a dose?

  • Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at the next regularly scheduled time. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
