Brief Answer:
You can drop Nexium and continue with Ranitidine.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns.

You can stop using nexium if you were on ranitidine. Comparitively ranitidine will have less side effects compared to nexium.

Hope this answers your query.
Get back if you have more.

Dr.Alekhya.
