An estimated 15-40% of users of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have upper-gastrointestinal side effects. 15-30% of long term users develop gastric or duodenal ulcers. Ulcer bleeding in due to NSAID use in people over 60 years results in about 3,500 hospitalisations and 400 deaths annually in the UK. Studies done by a university hospital shows that Nexium (esomeprazole) is very effective against the damage and ulcers caused by NSAID's. It does this by effectively controlling gastric acid secretion.
