About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of NEXIUM patients who developed ACHLORHYDRIA.

FactMed provides MD-approved analysis to help both patients, researchers, and physicians accurately assess the risk profile for more than 20,000 different pharmaceutical products. The below report offers compiled information from Food & Drug Administration and FactMed user submissions. Between January 2004 and October 2012, 5 individuals taking NEXIUM reported ACHLORHYDRIA to the FDA. A total of 88845 NEXIUM drug adverse event reaction reports were made with the FDA during this time period. Often the FDA only receives reports of the most critical and severe cases; these numbers may therefore underrepresent the complication rate of the medication.

FDA Research Report

Introduction This page is designed to help you determine the relationship, if any, between NEXIUM and ACHLORHYDRIA. In doing so, we compare NEXIUM with other drugs that cause ACHLORHYDRIA, to help you evaluate whether or not NEXIUM causes ACHLORHYDRIA. Likewise, this page shows the most highly-reported side effects of NEXIUM, so you can see if ACHLORHYDRIA ranks among NEXIUM's most well-known side effects.
Summary Statistics
Reports of NEXIUM causing ACHLORHYDRIA: 5

QUESTION
AORTIC DISSECTION
I am currently 62, and have suffered from GERD since I was about 16. I was prescribed 40mg of Nexium over 15 years ago. During that time I suffered broken bones in 3 separate minor events. I also had a Stanford Type III Aortic dissection, and was diagnosed with Lupus (SLE) and CKD. Around January of 2015 (about 18 months ago) I quit the Nexium cold turkey, and began taking 2 oz of Apple Cider Vinegar daily. I have had virtually ZERO recurrence of my life-long GERD symptoms. Unfortunately, the bones are still damaged, the kidneys still struggle to keep up, the Lupus still flares up for little or no reason, and the dissected aorta continues to limit my physical activities. GET OFF THAT STUFF! It's FDA approved for no more than 3 weeks of use, yet everybody on here has been on it for YEARS. IT ISN'T SAFE for human consumption. Why do we continue to enrich the Pharmaceutical giants at the sacrifice of our health? 2016-06-29 13:01:57

QUESTION
ESSENTIAL TREMOR
More a comment from what I've learned on Nexium for 10 years - magnesium deficiency is a cause for Essential Tremors (ET). Taking Nexium may reduce your ability to absorb magnesium naturally so some (including me) end up with ET. I prescribed Metroprolol and for me that worked. I also take regular supplements of magnesium to get / keep my levels in the normal range. I know of 5 other people who have similar issues at various levels. One other thing I learned is that some calcium supplements don't work with Nexium so be picky about which you use. I switched to CitraCal after a bone density scan showed decline in bone density beyond what it should be for my age. Something worth talking to your doctor about. 2016-07-29 15:03:41

QUESTION
IMMUNOSUPPRESSION
Can't remember how long I've been on Omprazole 20, @ Nexium 20 once a day for probably 20 yrs. I've been diagnosed with immunodeficiency (IgG). I take IVIG every 28 days. I've had severe swelling that has happened over time, to the point it was affecting my breathing. I've also had severe inflammation (score of 62 on wed rate test before I turned 50). I couldn't get my bowels to move, even with prescription meds. I'm always tired, feel weak. I've learned over the years, when your having problems that no one can answer, go back to the beginning and start over. I stopped all meds but Hyzaar 100/25, Motrin x 2 day, gas-x, and muscle relaxer at night. Been off of all PPI' for 2 weeks. Now I'm going regularly, fluid retention is coming off fast! My joints feel better, have some decent energy at last. Could all this have been caused by PPI's? (Omeprazole 20 mg usually x 1a day. There was a while I was taken by it 2x a day. Nexium 20 mg x 1a day) I can't believe how much better I feel! 2017-11-15 18:40:31
