Dexlansoprazole is used to treat certain conditions in which there is too much acid in the stomach. It is used to treat erosive esophagitis or "heartburn" caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition where the acid in the stomach washes back up into the esophagus. Dexlansoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). It works by decreasing the amount of acid produced by the stomach. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription. Before Using Dexilant In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make.

Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals.

Pediatric Appropriate studies have not been performed on the relationship of age to the effects of dexlansoprazole in the pediatric population. Safety and efficacy have not been established.

When I took a different PPI in the morning, I had to take a 2nd dose at night to prevent problems. Now I take it just before bedtime. I've read that taking a PPI can leave you with insufficient stomach acid to digest your food. Coffee does have a lot of acid. You might consider getting a cold brew system such as Toddy which reduces the amount of acid. Answered by Sherill Washnock 4 months ago.

Dexilant fot gastritis?
Hi, I was diagnosed with gastritis a few days ago and am being treated with Dexilant a pill a day. How long will it take for me to be fully healed? Anyone similar experience with this disease and medication?
Asked by Thao Millhouse 4 months ago.
I take Dexilant for gastritis and I love it. I switched from Protonix to it because my doctor said it would be a "true" 24 hour medication. It can actually take several weeks to get into your system and take full effect but I felt better in a few days. It also works best if taken the same time every day and right before a meal or at least snack of some sort. Answered by Jenise Grossen 4 months ago.
Doctor prescribed me dexilant but i don't want to take it?
i'm really afraid of the side effects. i was given dexilant because i have some inflammation and need to let my esophagus and stomach heal.. anything else I could possibly take to help the healing process?
Asked by Helena Bergh 4 months ago.
The major sides effects are listed as occuring when Dexilant is taken for long than 3 months. Every drug has side effects. Not treating your esophageal and gastric irritation has side effects. "Over time, chronic inflammation in your esophagus can lead to complications, including: Narrowing of the esophagus (esophageal stricture). Damage to cells in the lower esophagus from acid exposure leads to formation of scar tissue. The scar tissue narrows the food pathway, causing difficulty swallowing. An open sore in the esophagus (esophageal ulcer). Stomach acid can severely erode tissues in the esophagus, causing an open sore to form. The esophageal ulcer may bleed, cause pain and make swallowing difficult. Precancerous changes to the esophagus (Barrett's esophagus). In Barrett's esophagus, the color and composition of the tissue lining the lower esophagus change. These changes are associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer. The risk of cancer is low, but your doctor will likely recommend regular endoscopy exams to look for early warning signs of esophageal cancer". The complications of your condition sound more threatening. You can always talk to your doctor or seek another opinion from a different doctor. Answered by Randi Tegan 4 months ago.

I was on Nexium for just over 3 years. Earlier this year I noticed that at times, I was still feeling heartburn, even though I was on the Nexium. I talked to my doctor, who sent me to a GI specialist. He changed my medication to Dexilant 60mg. I have noticed quite a bit of difference with this, but I have one issue. Medicaid is dropping me the 1st of September - I got married, and with my husband's income, we make too much. He has a second interview this week for a job that offers great benefits, but whether he gets it or not, there's going to be a gap in our coverage. I can't afford $144/mo for this medication, as much as I wish I could. Even Nexium is near $130. Does anyone know if there is a generic version? The whole reason I was on prescription meds for this was because OTC meds weren't helping. They would for a couple weeks, and then I'd have to switch. I don't want to go that route again unless I simply can't find something similar to what I'm on, that I can afford for a few months. Thanks so much for any help! =] Answered by Evon Midcap 4 months ago.

PPIs take about 3 or 4 days to have full effects. So if you get no reflux after that time period then it is working. I'm not sure what your doc is trying to prove though. PPIs will stop acid in anyone. This doesn't prove whether you had reflux before or not. Answered by Cheryll Ziola 4 months ago.
