    Absolutely HORRIBLE!!!! I have taken Nexium for many years and it's amazing. I started the new generic form about 2 weeks ago- nightly as usual. I took me a while to figure out it was the med making me sick. Horrible stomach pain but not consistent. It was a dull ache in the center of my upper stomach. Reflux which I had not had since the Nexium returned. Dizziness. Weakness in knees. No Appet ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken *Brand NEXIUM for over 15 years or since its release, anyway for a long time. I recently was switched to the generic (TEVA brand). I find it does not work as long, I have to take more often and most recently after taking it for 3 weeks my hair is falling out like I am having chemotherapy treatment. How can generic be as good as the brand and why are we forced to take generic.

    Works great for GERD, however depletes magnesium levels dangerously low. I had heart palpitations, severe muscle cramping, nervousness, and shaking.
