    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 ?
