This means that Nexium
will cost him $3/month, the same as omeprazole
. So Prilosec would not have the cost advantage.
As an additional fyi, there are quite a few studies showing Nexium's superiority within acid control and the healing of erosive esophagitis vs. Protonix, Prevacid, and Aciphex (see Miner, Castell, Lauritsen, Lind).. in fact, Protonix proves to be the LEAST effective in these arenas.
