Hi ,

Thanks for writing back.

There are six available medications in this class and only some of them have generic equivalents.

NEXIUM does not have a generic equivalent at present in United states.

You can try for Omeprazole tablets , which are easily available in united states and other countries consulting your doctor.

Take care.
