I really think this drug is like Fosamax and it also belongs to the bisphosphonates family because it almost have similar adverse effects. Fosamax also causes Fosamax bone fracture.

Nexium is a proton pump inhibitor, it is used to treat severe acid reflux. Whenever you stop the body from something it does naturally, there are going to be additional effects. In this case certain minerals are not absorbed. The problem is that rather than eat healthy and stop the endless coffee, sodas and cigarettes, people would rather eat like a billy goat and take a pill to solve all their problems. Very few people would ever need stomach pills if they practiced a little self control.
Fosamax slows the normal breakdown of bone cells. When used appropriately it is generally a very safe drug although it has been linked to some atypical femur fractures. The likelihood of that happening is very low.
NO medication is 100% safe. More people die of tylenol related overdose every year than any other medication. It’s because everyone wants “the pill effect”. No one believes that even a little discomfort or alteration to their preferred lifestyle is bearable any more.

I have been taking Nexium for several years now and now I have gotten to the point to where unless I take it I can't feel like I can eat anything I get nauseated and heartburn no matter what I do now it seems worse now than it was when I first started taking the medication does anyone else have this problem?

It is unfortunate that this information has only reached the public this recently. Yet another widely prescribed medication that ends up having a debilitating complication that is hard to manage let alone cure. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com/femu...

Just like the fosamax. They also have bone fracture risks and other side effects when using it for long term. These issues have been running with fosamax for quite time. See stories here http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com

Anti-ulcer and acidity drugs have been found to cause bone fractures. Time will tell if this case will change the shape of the medical industry. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com
