Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
The only HIV medication with a significant drug-drug interaction with proton-pump inhibitors, like Nexium, is atazanavir (Reyataz). For this reason, for my patients with serious issues with GERD or acid indigestion, I'll tend to avoid Reyataz in favor of other medications.
