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.

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
