Hello, in my early 20s I developed gastro-intestinal issues. I was prescribed Tagamet initially, but it never seemed to adequately manage the condition and I eventually developed a secondary condition called gynecomastia so I was taken off the Tagamet. Over the next 10 years I tried a myriad of other drugs. Pepcid, zantac, stelabid #2, prepulcid, pariat, pantloc and 1 or 2 that I may have forgotten. The majority of these drugs did little or virtually nothing to control the hyper- acidic conditition. In the early 90s I had finally found something that worked exceptionally well, Omeprazole (Losec). I had been taking 20mg daily right up until early 2016. Losec had become relatively ineffective at this time and I was briefly put on Pantoloc. Pantoloc like many previous drugs, was ineffective. In March of 2016, I began taking Dexilant and it has controlled my condition relatively well up until recently, when I was diagnosed with elevated liver enzymes (somewhere in the 300s, when it should be in the 30s.). While I enjoy the odd drink, I am not someone who consumes "alcoholic" proportions. I have had a few "stomache aches" over the past few months that tend to come and go and the doctor suspects it could be gallbladder related. I am due to have an abdominal assesment on Sept. 19. I will post a follow up then. I hope the information that I've provided will benefit the group.
I am a 41 year old female and I have been on both Paxil & Remeron for 9 months. After 1 month of taking these I started having severe muscle pain and weakness in my hips and legs. I also started swelling in my legs, feet and hands along with a dry mouth every morning. I also suffered from terrible stomach issues. This has since subsided but the leg pain and back pain and stomach issues are still pretty bad. I started weaning myself off the Paxil 7 days ago from 20 mg to 10mg. So far I have no significant issues other than dizziness that comes and goes. I just want to connect with others like me to offer support and encouraging words in our journey to get off these drugs or offer advice to those thinking about going on them

I've been taking dexilant for almost 2 years. I take magnesium along with it because dexilant really does lower my magnesium level.
