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.

Some did not provide relief at all - Prilosec, Nexium, Zegrid. Aciphex, Protonix and Prevacid have all given me a queasy stomach for about 2 hours after taking them. Dexilant has no side effects for me and I wish I had known a ... Show Full Comment

The med works however, I have such waves of nausea, stomach aches, hot flushes [did not have before med.] putrid odor inside nose and no appetite whatsoever; and I have ravenous appetite normally.
