How to Use
How to take:- ONE tablet / capsule to be taken once daily 1 hour before food.
Taking this medicine
You can take your tablets at any time of the day. You can take your tablets with food or on an empty stomach. Swallow your tablets whole with a drink of water. Do not chew or crush the tablets. This is because the tablets contain coated pellets which stop the medicine from being broken down by the acid in your stomach. It is important not to damage the pellets.
What to do if you have trouble swallowing the tablets
If you have trouble swallowing the tablets: Put them into a glass of still (non-fizzy) water. Do not use any other liquids. Stir until the tablets break up (the mixture will not be clear). Then drink the mixture straight away or within 30 minutes. Always stir the mixture just before drinking it. To make sure that you have drunk all of the medicine, rinse the glass very well with half a glass of water and drink it. The solid pieces contain the medicine - do not chew or crush them.
If you take more Esomeprazole than you should

If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
