I have acid reflex and Barretts. The Dexilant worked better than any PPI that I tried including OTC drugs but after two months I started getting a rash and red spots on my face. I stopped the dexilant and the rash went away but the acid reflex came back. Great drug for reflex but nasty side effects for me. Tough disease no easy answers.

My Dr. recently suggested Dexilant since it would be one pill a day with greater coverage for symptoms. Plus, it has a discount program that you can potentially qualify for. If so, ...
