Generic Nexium Approved by FDA

Released: 01/26/2015   By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Manager

The FDA has recently approved the generic equivalent of Nexium (esomeprazole). Nexium treats gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) by reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach. An official launch date has yet to be announced by the manufacturer.

Generic prescription drugs approved by the FDA have the same high quality and strength as brand name drugs. Generic prescription drug manufacturing and packaging sites must pass the same quality standards as those of brand name drugs.
