FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: DEXILANT

User Comments:


For GERD “I’ve have had Omeprazole for a year. Two months ago my throat started pain and I went to see my doctor. He put me dexilant 60mg, it works well first all and my throat is getting better. But after two weeks, it started diarrhea. Cramps in my stomach, fatigue. I have to stop for a week and see.”

For GERD “Oh my! After taking this med for 3 days, I felt human again after months of terrible pain even though I was prescribed several different Rxs. Just worried about when I have to go off of it. Until then, I will enjoy it.”

For GERD “Only thing that works for severe reflux, documented on X-ray. Trialled Prilosec, which did nothing, and nexium, which produced nausea. I still have some mild burning from time to time in the distal esophageal/stomach region, but nothing like it was. It’s still under patent and very costly. It costs $100 every three months on my insurance.”

For GERD “It almost killed me….I have taken it for along time and about 5 days ago I started feeling wrong and getting chest pain until I ended up the ER.They couldn’t find the issue so with this being the only medication I take I looked up side effects and there it was… I recommend avoiding this at all cost.Its now 2 days since I took it and my chest is feeling better but not great yet but it was for sure the dexilant.”

For GERD “I started getting silent GERD issues that were hurting and bothering my throat… I tried prilosec but only got night panic attacks. So I went to the doctor. The doctor gave me free samples of Dexilant 60mg. At first, it gave me some relief, but now I’m having crazy side effects. Diarrhea, panic attacks, stomach cramps (bad), sweaty palms, headache. If I don’t take it right on time, my acid gets worse and then I get bad bad panic attacks (hyperventilations, racing heart). I don’t know what to do. It’s frustrating and I almost wish I never started this medication!”
