    There are many different PPIs that are all as good as each other for reducing acid when taken in equivalent dose. (See attached graphic. )

    Esomeprazole is no better than the omeprazole it was refined from (probably as a marketting ploy by Astra Zeneca) . 

    20mg is a low dose. You may need more but do discuss it with your doctor. If needed, they must be used correctly and monitored by a doctor.

      Possibly a different manufacturer? The box should have correct details, though. Esomeprazole only recently went out of patent so there are generic versions now available (eg Emozul instead of the more expensive, original Nexium) .
