 1  Acid teflux It worked at first, had been on for 3 months straight 60 mg once a day.. Started experiencing shortness of breath and my wheezing has gotten worse. I ended up in the ER one day after my vision went completely wacky like I was looking thru a kaleidoscope. By the time I got home, which I have no idea how I did because I could not even read signs! Then I started experiencing peripheral neuropathy and my whole body was tingling like I had my finger in an electrical socket! It was horrible. I had to call 911. I was admitted to the hospital and my magnesium and potassium levels were very low. The doctors could not figure out anything after many test. Now reading all these reviews I believe it most likely was caused by dexilant. I also had developed pretty severe aniexty of which I have never experienced before. I felt like I could not handle anything and could not calm down a few times when I got into an argument. Which is not like me. I am pretty healthy overall besides my acid reflux, a Realtor and very calm usually and can handle stress. I am still experiencing neuropathy daily in my arms and I am hoping this will eventually go away since I stopped the dexilant a week ago. I am also hoping my shortness of breath will improve. I requested a PH test to be done instead to learn more about when, how much and why I am refluxing to try to get to the root cause instead. I have a sense of relief maybe putting the pieces of the puzzle together after reading others stories. F 60 91 days

 1  Gastritis I took dexilant for gastritis. I started to develop calf cramps at first , followed by heart palpitations and shortness of breath. Today I ended up in the ER at the advice of my doctor and pharmacist. My heart rate was over 120, usual resting heat rate for me is around 55-60 bpm. I have stopped taking the dexilant, the ER doc mentioned it would take about 5 days to flush the remaining drug from my system. Will not be taking it again. M 38 10 days

 2  GERD It stopped my burping for a while. However, 3 hrs later, I had SEVERE stomach ache, muscle pain, tingling in my extremities, nausea. I thought it was something I ate and brushed it off. Next day, I took another pill and I had these same symptoms. It has been 2 days since i first took it and I do not feel good at all. I wonder when this will go away. I am sick and tired :( Not for everyone. F 25 2 days

 3  Gerd Dizzy, dry mouth, nausea, constipation, headache Started taking this drug for acid reflux. I started on 30 mg and after a while it didnít help so my gastroenterologist increased the dosage to 60 mg. This helped for a while but again my dr wanted to increase to 90 mg. I refused to take 90 mg. Iíve been trying to ween myself off this drug for so long and just canít seem to succeed. I hate it and wish I had never started taking it. Trying to adjust my diet and that helps a bit but still taking 30 mg daily. I think the pharmaceutical companies make sure you will not be able to do without it. Very frustratung F 72 5 years

 5  Gerd This was the only drug that worked for me! I've been taking it for over 10 years. Suddenly the label changed and I notice it says it is now made in Germany. The medicine no longer works for me. It's as if I'm not taking it at all. My reflux has returned and extreme gastro problems. I'm horribly upset. About two years ago I took Cipro along with Dexilant. My B12 levels crashed and I got severe peripheral neuropathy. It took about a year to go away after I discovered the B12 issue and started taking B12 supplements. So be forewarned ... don‚Äôt mix the two drugs. M 57 12 years

 1  GERD & Gastritis Vertigo! Light headed! Heart palpitations! Headache! Muscle soreness! Dexilant sent me to the ER twice in one month! After taking it for almost 2 months I was driving to work and became dizzy, managed to walk the 1/2 block from the parking lot to work and had to call 911! My dr changed all my bp meds thinking that might be it. 2 weeks later I was back in the ER with heart palpitations and vertigo along with shortness of breath, both times my heart rate had dropped to 48! I thought I was gonna DIE! The only thing different was the Dexilant, while it did help the gerd the side affects are not worth it!!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DRUG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 3  Gerd/nausea Consult with new gastro doc gave me samples of 60mg of Dexilant. I have had issues with nausea since I was 19, and no other drugs have worked to control it. I have been prescribed Zofran as a bandaid solution. First 3 days of taking Dexilant, I felt like an entirely new person! Zero nausea. But on the 4th day I started getting dizzy, vertigo, feeling as if I was moving when sitting still. And severe constipation. I am unsure I will be able to continue this drug. F 33 6 days

 3  GERD Took this a few months ago for 6 weeks and felt better! Came off it and did well for a few months before the reflux returned. Back on Dexilant less than a week and I'm a wreck this time. Headaches, DIZZINESS like never before. I feel like I'm floating even when I'm laying down and not moving..it's very weird. Trying to push through as my reflux is gone. Not sure yet if this drug is worth the dizziness though. F 36 1 weeks

DEXILANT  (DEXLANSOPRAZOLE):  Dexlansoprazole is used to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems (such as acid reflux). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough. This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus, helps prevent ulcers, and may help prevent cancer of the esophagus. Dexlansoprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
