Hi, I'm new to this group. I've been on Lexapro for over 3 years, and during that time have gone from Osteopenia overall to Osteoporosis in my spine. I definitely think it's the Lexapro, but of course I can't know for sure. I'm wondering how concerned to be about this. My MD still suggests diet/exercise/supplements without bone drugs at this point, but I'm worried about this drug. I'd appreciate any comments/suggestions from you all. Thanks, Susan
Hi everyone. Stopped Nexium about 3 months ago after being on a high dosage for years. This was because of the warnings out about kidney damage. Nexium is the only thing that works. Ranitadine is almost useless and I have to supplement it with Tums. The pain was so severe that I was crying so I started back on Nexium this week. I have essential tremors but had them under control.. Until started back on Nexium....they are back now with a vengeance. My ah ha moment! Now I guess I need to decide which is worse..the Gerd or tremors that make me appear 90 years old. I have an appt with a new GI DR in a week and a followup with my neurologist the next day. I take zanax to control breakthrough tremors. Signed, Between a Rock and a Hard Place.

One of my patients may have developed Osteonecrosis of her lower jaw. The only potential drug that may have contributed to her condition is Nexium, but there have been no such reported cases to date. Does anyone fit the potential profile of a Nexium induced Osteonecrosis?
