I've had heartburn and acid problems for about 6 months now. It was misdiagnosed for about 2 months. I started taking Nexium at 40 X1day and Zantac 150 X2day and it did not help a lot. I was then switched to Nexium at 40 x2day w/the Zantac 150 x2day and it still left me w/acid poblems. After a few months I was switched to Dexilant X1day and Zantac 150 x2day and I have had very few symptoms ... Show Full Comment

This is, by far, the best drug for me in my 18 yr experience with GERD. I don't seem to have any of the side effects mentioned by other reviewers. Took Nexium for yrs but still had symptoms of acid reflux occasionally. With Dexilant, I don't. Just hope and pray that it continues to work so well for me.

Now, after 6 weeks on Dexilant 60 mg, I experience relief from GERD. However, I developed a severe migrane, which has now lasted five days. Today, I saw my physician and she ordered an MRI of my brain due to the excruciating, ongoing pain. The MRI is negative, which is a relief, but the headaches continue unabatedly. The ENT who prescribed the medication does not think the headache is a side effec ... Show Full Comment

Given to me when complained to Dr. of burping all the time, especially upon arising with no food on stomach. Still burp, maybe not as much - no nasty taste though, kinda like aftertaste from Alka Seltzers. Stomach bloated so much, it's hard to get breath - excessive gas - afraid to go out in public! Taken 5 days - just now woke up with acid reflux - can't lay down. I'm stopping th ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
The only problem is after only three doses I have diarrhea. Since going to WebMD web site and seeing the side effects of this drug, it will not be a drug of choice for myself. There are too many choices on the market that do not have such severe side effects that can be taken under a doctors care. I wish the manufacturers of these drugs would look at them as if they themselves were going to hav ... Show Full Comment
