Me and the guys, I was told that Omenprazole was the generic for Nexium.......at any rate, if they will not cover Nexium..(cheap so and so's, insurance makes me so mad) have him ask for that....the others do not work for me and this does.

Sometimes Judi, I get pain in the back, but I am glad you are going for a full work-up. I do take something for cholesterol and I am glad that I do since they did not have it for my parents and heart disease is a tough one..

I did have a thyroid scan recently, although blood work was good, doctor thought it felt enlarged... You know, I know this can be a pain in the neck, but you have to be your own advocate and follow through with all these tests and constantly be aware of your health... so far all my tests have been good, which is a good thing for me since I need to be in good health to take care of you know who.... I can say that to Judi as she knows you know who...

This is the generic for Prilosec. Nexium is not yet generic.

Wow.. so weird....so prilosec does not work, but the generic does....that is just too weird..So then why does my medical ins not cover Nexium....which does work, it must be too expensive and they feel the others should work as well. Bizarre.

Thanks Christine..

Who can figure out insurance?

I don't know why the Prilosec would not work for you but the generic version does. I have the exact opposite. The Astra-Zeneca brand name Prilosec works for me, but the Prilosec OTC and the generic omeperazole don't work. Everyone' different.

Nexium is still brand name and maybe that's why your insurance won't cover it--because there is a generic PPI available (omeperazole). They may think that they are equal (and they are in some people) so they only offer the cheaper one.

All depends on your insurance. I can get any of the brand name PPIs for a $25 copay.

Hi

Hi Marsha: I saw the movie Holiday also and actually could feel her pain when she talked about the spasm she was having in her chest. I've had them (they come on so quickly) where I've actually had a pain in my jaw and head. The one thing that really helps me is to have a glass of water and if it doesn't relieve the pain, I then have Maalox or Mylanta which takes the pain away but leaves a lingering feeling of heaviness in my chest. I've been checked out and everything is fine - however, it really is a horrible feeling to have!

Hugs to all and a good weekend also. Barbara
