Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) Medication Information
Healthcare providers often prescribed Dexilant to treat Gastrointestinal Reflux Disease (GERD) and associated symptoms like heartburn. It can also treat erosive esophagitis (EE) and related heartburn.
The generic name for Dexilant is dexlansoprazole.
Dexilant is a type of medication called a proton pump inhibitor. These medications stop the “pumps” that push stomach acid from the gastric parietal cells to the inside of the stomach.
Dexilant is available as 30 mg and 60 mg capsules. It can be taken with or without food and is usually taken once per day.
Dexilant can be swallowed whole, or it can be opened and sprinkled onto applesauce. Do not chew or crush Dexilant.
Dexilant is taken from between one to six months, depending on why you’re using it.
If you have a history of liver problems, your doctor may need to reduce the dose.
The most common side effects of Dexilant include:
- Abdominal pain
- Upper respiratory tract infection
Dexilant can increase the risk of an intestinal infection called Clostridium difficile. C. diff associated diarrhea symptoms include persistent or watery diarrhea, fever, pain, bloating, and bloody diarrhea. Tell your doctor immediately if you have these symptoms.
Use Dexilant with caution if you have a history of osteoporosis or osteopenia. Long-term use of Dexilant can increase the risk of bone fractures.
