THE NEXIUM® 24HR EFFECT

There are three different over-the-counter medicines that treat heartburn. Each works in a different way.

ANTACIDS

1-3 hr protection

Antacids neutralize stomach acid but do not reduce acid production at the source. Antacids work quickly, but effects last for only 1-3 hours after use.

PPIs

24 hr protection

PPIs, or proton pump inhibitors like Nexium® 24HR, treat frequent heartburn by blocking the production of acid. Protection from frequent heartburn lasts for 24 hours. PPIs may take 1-4 days for full effect.

H2s

12 hour protection

H2s, or histamine blockers, block one of the signals that tell your body to make acid. They start working within 30 minutes and the effects can last for up to 12 hours, but become less effective if used for more than a few days in a row.
