Worked great, Only took a day to kick in and was easy on my stomach. The only problem I had was that iI lived on samples for awhile because insurance would not cover. Switched to protonix shortly thereafter.

Had been dealing with severe reflux for more than a year. Had just taken OTC products-antacids, prilosec gaviscon. Finally went to the Dr and was put on Dexilant. Immediately had relief-no more GERD, heartburn or indigestion. The Dr had me try to get off of teh med after 2 1/2 months and symptoms came back in four days! Thankfully I am now back on it and symptom free again!

I've been using Dexilant for a month to help my heartburn. It seems to work pretty well. I have been getting muscle pains, 5 days ago I felt like I pulled a muscle in my neck while sleeping, and than yesterday I sat down in a chair and when I got up my lower back felt like I threw it out. Don't know if its due to meds, but going to stop taking it until I find out otherwise. I'm a healt ... Show Full Comment
