    Thanks Jason. Ordered nexium


    That's the regular sale price for the Terry White Nexium generic I think.


    Beware the generic stuff. Can't speak for this brand, but generic Nexium leaves me feeling like death the next day, while Nexium proper doesn't. YMMV.

      Proton pump inhibitors like these can have strong side effects.

      I suffer very bad reflux and was prescribed this type of medication.

      Ask your doctor about h2 blockers, I switched to famotidine for my reflux and feel much better

      I'd suggest there is something else at play here, either some other different circumstances in your diet/environment or you have an issue with a different filler/compound in some medications.

      It's also worth noting, there are several different PPI medications. Personally I found pantoprazole (Somac) worked better for me than esomeprazole.

      I have noticed zero differences between Somac and the generic pantoprazoles.

      In any case, if you haven't already, go and speak with your GP and seek their advice.

    This price is not what I would call a bargain unless you need it delivered to you or can't see a bulk billed GP.

    If you have a condition that genuinely warrants proton pump inhibitor medications, go see your GP and they can give you a script. You can then buy boxes of 30 tabs for less than $10 at discount pharmacies.

      Fair comment, but for many people going to a gp (who bulk bills) getting a script, having the script filled etc etc may not be possible or practical. From my research this is the best price in Australia for this item (type) delivered in anywhere Oz as an otc purchase.

        Neggers are going to neg - but this is still the best price in Oz for OTC generic heartburn relief - delivered.

        • +1 vote

          The neg (including from me) is the concern that omeprazole is a pharmacy only medicine, and should be dispensed by a pharmacist. Not as an internet "bargain".


            @willyroo: I'm actually surprised that this isn't Pharmacist Only medication.

            Got stuck buying Somac the other week when on holidays and it is Pharmacist Only for the 14 packs.

    Interesting story. For years I suffered from really bad heartburn/reflux after eating too much carbs like pasta/pizza. If I took nexium or other ppi beforehand I was fine, but if I didn't and I got an attack, I would be in pain for as long as 12 hours. Anyway, I discovered I actually had a gallstone in the neck of my gallbladder and had a cholecystectomy. Have never really suffered any heartburn symptoms since. It's such a weird thing to have been missed, since I went to ED a few times. Am really puzzled how ppis prevented gallbladder flare ups.


      Bile is very basic, so I'd be thinking your gall bladder was being called upon to push out extra bile to neutralise the excess acid.

      After I had a cholecystectomy, my reflux actually got a lot worse in terms of how easy it is for me to trigger it if I am not careful with my diet and behavior.


        Did you experience weight gain since? I have. Seems to be something with how bile signals to the body whether to store or burn fat. I naively thought I would experience weight loss since less fat was being properly digested. I take some digestive enzyme supplements now that also contain ox bile and it has helped a bit. It also contains HCL, so not sure how well it would go with people who have reflux. This is the link to the product I use if anyone is interested


          I put on a few kilos but nothing huge and not in a way that I would attribute to being caused by the removal of the gall bladder.

    Another heartburn sufferer here! Been on Zantac and then Nexium (when Zantac got banned) tablets for over 12 years. I turned 35 and decided to go full cold turkey and figure out why. If I stay away from garlic, onion and tomatoes and alcohol (gin is tolerable) then all is good in the hood.

    Sometimes life needs pizza and a wine sesh though. My issue with nexium is you need to take a few days prior to get them working , I need a solution for that.

      First thing in the morning on an empty stomach keeps me "protected" for the day.


        Yes, it applies a rubber on the stomach lining..

      PPIs are to my knowledge all enteric coated to stop the stomach destroying them, so they won't actually start delivering the medication until they pass further down your system.

      If I get a flare up then I will take a pantoprazole plus also bunch of antacid (Mylanta) to try help keep things in check until the pantoprazole kicks in.

      For me fatty meals without enough time to pass through the stomach before bed time can trigger my reflux but that's also partly due to me having no gall bladder. Coffee, red wine,cider, excessive spirits, concentrated tomatoes (eg. paste and sauces but not fresh ones) are my specific triggers. I think onion triggers me but I don't normally eat it anyway. Interestingly beer is fine for me so long as I don't go overboard.

      Weight and stress are two other factors I have found.

    Agree with earlier comments re long term use of Omeprazole (Nexium). You should be reviewing this with a GP. There are concerns around bone mineral density, and I've dropped my dose to 10mg in consultation with my GP.


      Very interesting study. Haven't got time to read it all right now but does it suggest calcium supplements or similar for long-term PPI users?

    • +1 vote

      The link between PPI use and bone mineral density is a bit inconsistent, as there are many studies that also don't find a correlation (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27845341/). There is a correlation between PPI use and fracture risk though.


    I ordered Certrine on 3 May from you and haven’t received it.


      Pls send a PM - very hard to help based on a comment in a thread - typical delivery is 10 working days, so even though it seems like a really long time, 10 working days is around the 18th of May. I have quite a few return to sender items - many of which were ordered by clients with no email address, so please contact me with your details if your item doesn't arrive by the 18th. Thanks.


        Tablets received :)


    Can we have 30 x cetirizine tablets for $ 7.9 deal again?
