Can you please explain in whether Nexium (exomeprazole magnesium) or Zantac (ranitidine) is prescribed? As I found on the net both medications, Nexium (exomeprazole magnesium) and Zantax are used for the same conditions. Why then, in some occasions you get prescription for one and the next time for the other medication?

You are right; both medications that you have mentioned have the same or the similar effect on acid production. The thing is that they act in completely different ways. Sometimes that can be the reason for prescribing the one and not the other. The other reason can be the availability of Ranitidine (Zantax) on over the counter sale and because of that doctors are advised to prescribe more of Nexium which is not available without the prescription.
