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

Comment:
Because of suspected problems taking Nexium and lots of Motrin the Dr prescribed Dexilant. Within 12 hours of taking the first 60 mg pill I started with diarrhea, it continued through three days and three pills. I actually lost about ten pounds at this time. Stopped taking the pill and took an anti-diarrheal med. Will seek other meds for the GERD and indigestion.
