    Some of the information in this article is not correct.

    Prilosec is NOT the generic name of Nexium. (There is currently no generic form of Nexium.) Prilosec is a mixture of R and S enantiomers of omeprazole. Nexium is only the S enantiomer of omeprazole. The active ingredient in Prilosec is Omeprazole. The active ingredient in Nexium is esomeprazole magnesium.

    This information is available on the manufacturer’s websites. Perhaps someone should do a better job of researching before providing medical advice!

      It does not state that Nexium is the generic of Prilosec. Esomeprazole is Nexium (with magnesium) as you stated. Maybe you should reread the article yourself! Happy health!

        I read the whole article & I did not see Prilosec mentioned anywhere either.
