Dexilant is a proton pump inhibitor used to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and heal damage to the esophagus caused by stomach acid. It works by decreasing the amount of acid produced by the stomach.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Dexilant exactly as prescribed.
Take with a full glass of water, with or without food.
Swallow capsule whole. Do not crush, chew or break.
Dexilant may cause kidney problems. Watch for changes in urination.
If you have lupus, Dexilant can cause new or worsening symptoms.
Risk of broken bones can increase while taking Dexilant.
Before taking Dexilant, inform your doctor if you have any of the following:
Low bone mineral density
Low magnesium levels
Common side effects of Dexilant include:
Diarrhea, gas, nausea, stomach pain, vomiting
Contact your doctor if you experience these more serious side effects:
Low magnesium – muscle cramps and spasms, dizziness, tremors or jerking movements, fast or irregular heart rate, coughing or choking
Kidney problems – blood in urine, urinating more or less than usual, swelling, weight gain
Severe stomach pain, bloody/watery diarrhea

How long should I take Dexilant?
Take as long as prescribed by your doctor, even if GERD symptoms like heartburn have resolved. Dexilant also helps to heal damage done to the esophagus, and continued treatment can keep this damage from coming back.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
