Dr. tells me that dexilant shouldn,t be the cause of my diarhea, yet every thing I see here says it is. She just gave me a prescription for 90 days. Am worried about useing this. Has anyone just stopped use of it with no problems?
- Dexilant and hair loss
About three months after starting Dexilant I have noticed hair loss/ shedding type symptoms. I am not taking any other new medications. I plan to discuss this with my doctor. I don't think I am anemic or have any other medical condition that would cause this. Hair loss is not listed as a side effect to this drug. Please help.
- Wondering if dexilant is causing my problem (2 answers)
have had my prostate checked by urologist and prostate is slightly enlarged but not enough to cause problems.urinary track ok,bladder ok etc.
drank a liter of water and bladder emptied ok in test.
seem to urinate good after consuming coffee or beer but lately having more whiskey than beer.
when I drink whiskey I don't urinate much in evening but have to get up 3 or 4 times during the night to urinate.amlodipine,ramipril,atenolol are for blood pressure.
rosuvastatin for cholesterol,methocarbonal for sore back,pseudoephedrine and ibuprofen are for sinus headaches caused from smoking cigarettes.
so anybody out there think dexilant might be causing my urinating during the night problem ?
plus when I do go during the night I don't seem to completely empty my bladder!
any ideas ?

- Heat stroke while working in yard.
I am taking Benicar 40 mg and separately, Hct. I was working in the yard in the evening, temp about 84 degrees, high humidity. Did not feel hot, but suddenly felt very dizzy and had to lay down. The condition got worse, I started vomiting, so my wife called 911 and the ambulance took me to the hospital where they performed several tests, including a brain scan. All tests negative, but 40 hours later, still very dizzy when walking or just moving my head side to side or up and down. Finally able to hold down food 40 hours later, but the dizziness persists, making for very difficult walking. I cannot say for sure that Benicar caused the heat stroke, but it is the only possible cause of all those shown.
- Possible link between taking benicar hct and developing gynecomastia
I started taking Benicar HCT several years ago for my hypertension. Shortly after starting on the Benicar HCT, I developed gynecomastia in one breast and then the other. My doctor did not think the two events were related. So, I kept taking the Benicar HCT for several years and my Gynecomastia problem persisted the whole time. This is an embarrassing and painful condition. I recently dropped the Benicar HCT and substituted losartan HCT. Within a month the size of my breasts has decreased dramatically and the painful nodules behind my nipples have almost completely disappeared. The fact that the condition started with taking Benicar HCT and ended with the cessation of the drug makes me believe that in my case Benicar HCT was the cause.
