Properly Taking Actonel and Nexium
I am taking 35 mg of Actonel and 40 mg. of Nexium for heartburn related to the Actonel. Which should I take first?
You need to take the Actonel on an empty stomach or it will not be absorbed. Do not eat or drink anything but water for a full half hour and do not lie down or recline.
