What is the most important information I should know about
esomeprazole magnesium delayed-release
capsules?
Esomeprazole magnesium delayed-release capsules may help your
acid-related symptoms, but you could
still have serious stomach problems. Talk with your doctor.
Esomeprazole magnesium delayed-release capsules can cause serious side
effects, including:
•
A type of kidney problem (acute tubulointerstitial nephritis). Some
people who take proton pump
inhibitor (PPI) medicines, including esomeprazole magnesium
delayed-release capsules, may
develop a kidney problem called acute tubulointerstitial nephritis
that can happen at any time
during treatment with esomeprazole magnesium delayed-release capsules.
Call your doctor right
away if you have a decrease in the amount that you urinate or if you
have blood in your urine.
•
Diarrhea caused by an infection (Clostridium difficile ) in your
intestines. Call your doctor right
away if you have watery stool or stomach pain that does not go away.
You may or may not have a
fever.
•
Bone fractures (hip, wrist, or spine). Bone fractures in the hip,
wrist, or spine may happen in
people who take multiple daily doses of PPI medicines and for a long
period of time (a year or
longer). Tell your doctor if you have a bone fracture, especially in
the hip, wrist, or spine.
•
Certain types of lupus erythematosus. Lupus erythematosus is an
autoimmune disorder (the body's
immune cells attack other cells or organs in the body). Some people
who take PPI medicines,
including esomeprazole magnesium delayed-release capsules, may develop
certain types of lupus
erythematosus or have worsening of the lupus they already have. Call
your doctor right away if
you have new or worsening joint pain or a rash on your cheeks or arms
that gets worse in the sun.
Talk to your doctor about risk of these serious side effects.
