What is the difference between Esomeprazole and Omeprazole?
Esomeprazole and omeprazole are both drugs that work to treat acid reflux and heartburn. However, there are some key differences between the two. For instance, esomeprazole is the more effective drug at reducing stomach acid production. Additionally, esomeprazole may be better tolerated by some people, with fewer side effects. Ultimately, your doctor will be able to determine which drug is best for you based on your individual needs and medical history.
