Date:6/2/2009

p disturbances were defined as trouble sleeping due to heartburn and other symptoms of GERD.

In one study, relief of nighttime heartburn was significantly greater for patients treated with NEXIUM 20 mg once daily (n=137) compared with placebo (n=125) after four weeks (34.3% vs. 10.4%, P < .0001)(1). In addition, relief of GERD-related sleep disturbances was significantly greater for patients treated with NEXIUM 20 mg once daily compared with placebo (71.5% vs. 55.2%, P=.006)(1).

In a second four-week study, 84% of patients experienced relief of GERD-related sleep disturbances with NEXIUM 20 mg once daily (n=220) compared to 54% with placebo (n=221; P < .0001). In addition, relief of nighttime heartburn was significantly greater for patients treated with NEXIUM 20 mg once daily compared with placebo (50% vs 13% , P < .0001).

NEXIUM is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any component of the formulation or to substituted benzimidazoles. The most frequently reported adverse reactions with NEXIUM include headache, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Symptomatic response to therapy does not preclude the presence of gastric malignancy.
