Hello I’m new here. Just got diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease my doctors seem to think it’s from being on nexium for 20 years. The nephrologist said he’s not too concerned with my kidneys at this point but I am freaking out. He said stay away from too much salt and eat moderately with protein.
Have any of you had to give up nexium? It’s so hard but I actually went down from 40 mg to 20 mg a day. He said maybe try to take Prilosec or Zantac in place of it but they don’t work for me.
Any suggestion on how you quit nexium would be so helpful.
