    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.
