started taking this 3 days ago and the constant flank pain i always have due to my GERD is gone. it feels great. but... i have been getting this weird sensation where my throat feels tight. not like it's closing up / i'm going to die etc. - but it just feels tighter and a bit uncomfortable. if it gets much worse i will stop this med and see if it goes away.

I have been taking Dexilant for 4wks. My Dr. gave me samples and saw me 2 weeks after starting meds. It was great at that time, now I have had a headache for 12 out of the last 14 days. I am very glad i looked this up and see others with same reaction.I will call my Dr. and get off these even though they work on GERD.

Comment:
Have Reflux for over 10 years and was on Zantac until it stopped working. Dr. put me on Dexilant 4 mo ago and had total relief after 3 days. However, started experiencing extreme daily headaches and heart palpitations. Brain MRI showed normal, so I'm going off Dexilant to see if headaches go away. Might try natural remedies to help with reflux.

Comment:
because of new insurance and price of nexium my doctor changed me over to samples of dexilant. I have suffered since the first pill, severe nausea, diahhrea, dizziness and feeling like I have the flu. must find a way to pay for nexium, it worked the best for me, and i have suffered for years.
