... Hi, I was told by my Consultant to give them at least 4-8 wks, so one week is much too short time. I was prescribed Nexium 1 x 40 mg per day. Everyone reacts differently and improvement varies, I noticed a difference in 2-3 weeks. Keep taking them regularly and if no improvement in 4 weeks you may need a different brand or stronger prescription. All the best, Solofelix. (2 replies)
