... I took Nexium every day for about 6 weeks, then switched over to Aciphex, which is very similar to Prilosec.

... I would wait about an hour after you take the Nexium, then pop a Gaviscon. That should be fine. You may also decide to try taking the Nexium at a different time of day and see if that helps. I took Nexium for a while, now I take Aciphex, at 3 or 4 pm each day. ... (3 replies)
... Proton Inhiborters is what gave me the side effects but the over the counter like Prilosec has less amount in them so it shouldn't be as bad. Nexium was very potent.
