Does Nexium cause weight gain?

  1. I was recently diagnosed with GERD and have started Nexium 40mg/day. I am hoping weight gain is not a side effect. Thanks :flowers:
     
  2. I've been on Nexium for several years. Haven't put on an ounce on this med.
     
  3. Thanks meowgal...that is great to hear!
     
  4. Shouldn't be--in fact, it may help you lose weight since many people with GERD or epigastric pain find that the pain is better after eating--and so they eat all the time to numb the pain!

    Hoep you are feeling better!
