Brief Answer:
there are only a few serious interactions

Detailed Answer:
You are welcome.
Nexium may have serious interactions with some antiviral drugs against HIV. Other - more common - drugs include clopidogrel, citalopram, methotrexate. Less serious effects may apply to other drugs like amlodipine and other antihypertensive drugs, etc.
