Nexium Pneumonia Causes and Reviews


Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause Pneumonia. You can also get Pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.

Symptoms of Pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you

  • Have a high fever
  • Have shaking chills
  • Have a cough with phlegm that doesn't improve or gets worse
  • Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
  • Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
  • Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu

Your doctor will use your medical history, a physical exam, and lab tests to diagnose Pneumonia. Treatment depends on what kind you have. If bacteria are the cause, antibiotics should help. If you have viral Pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat it.

Preventing Pneumonia is always better than treating it. Vaccines are available to prevent pneumococcal Pneumonia and the flu. Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently and not smoking.

Nexium Pneumonia Reviews

Tue, 03 May 2011

i have been get dizzy and muscle cramps in my arms and tighteness in my chest since i been on the Nexium for about 4weeks,has anybody else had or have these symptoms

Wed, 03 Aug 2011

my husband was diagnosed with pancreatitis. he had all the symptoms you described. i think its the Nexium he is taking. he had been on it for about 2 months.

Sat, 07 May 2011

does anyone have abdominal pain from long term Nexium use?

Sun, 03 Apr 2011

i have been taking Nexium for 6 years now. I have had abdominal swellness,nausea,and dizziness for about 6 months now. Could it be the Nexium?

Fri, 06 Apr 2012

My uncle switched to a new heartburn medicine so gave me 16 of his remaining Nexium pills (which I also take and have taken for a long time). 

After my current prescription ran out I just now took one of his left over pills and am having these symptoms (burning sensation in mouth, tongue, and throat).  What gives?   I've never had this experience with Nexium before.

They are the exact same Nexium pills that I take and the prescription was filled last month.  We use different pharmacies.

The only thing I can think is the Nexium came out of the capsule or maybe the desiccant in the container got on it.  With my uncle's obsessions he'll count pills multiple times to make sure he has as many as he should, so he may have split the coating open on one.  I examined the remaining pills and they all seem intact.

I swallowed the pill whole, and within seconds after I had the burning in my throat and mouth.   Weird.  Not sure if I should take the remaining pills.  I guess I'll try another again tomorrow and see what happens.  If the same thing, I'll just get my own Nexium prescription refilled.

My uncle isn't the cleanest guy in the world, so who knows what he himself may have gotten on these pills while handling.  I've wiped down the remaining capsules. LOL

I had been taking Nexium for two years and when I had tests in hospital they found that my liver count was 999 where it should only be 41. They took me off it straight away and within two days it had dropped to half and after seven days with no Nexium I was down to 110. I am now down to 19. Problem is I. am still suffering with indigestion and very white thick saliva

Sun, 07 Feb 2010

Hi! Some years ago I took Nexium for v. severe gerd, with haemorrhage.
From the time I started it, suddenly my gastric system was totally upset, where it hadn't previously.
Because I wasn't digesting properly, my immune system was affected, and have since developed numerous food allergies.
I could eat anything before!!
I couldn't take any pharm. drugs due to the allergy problem-even those I'd taken with impunity years earlier.
I've found that a preventitive diet, and 'stomacin u', a sublingual spray used daily, keeps me gastrically well! Stomacin u is made from cabbage juice only, puts a protective mucin lining on the gut, preventing erosion pain. It really works for me!!

Wed, 25 Apr 2012

I only took one Nexium when my mouth became extremely sensitive, then within hours a hot red rash lined my inside of mouth and throat,  making it very hard to swallow.  I assume I had a severe reaction....yet I can take Somac without any known side effects!

Fri, 20 Apr 2012

Nxium HP7 failed to eradicate H.PYlori - broke out in hives and welts - 6 weeks later, still suffering the effects of hives.

Why do Doctors differ on their understanding re HP?? "Contagious. Not contagious. Caught from mother's milk." One doctor has since told me (based on his own personal experience) - "it's easily treated as a teenager, a waste of time, and too many side effects, trying to treat it in adults!"
