How should I take Nexium?

Nexium should be taken an hour before eating and may be taken in capsule form or as a liquid. It can be taken by mouth or through a feeding tube. It is generally taken once a day, but dosage may be twice a day for cases of severe stomach acid production. Capsules can either be swallowed whole, or the pellets inside can be sprinkled in cool applesauce, yogurt, or fruit juice and swallowed all at once.
