Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 weeks ago):
Seems like it is resistant to medications and it is recurring and seems like treatment just makes it more worse.
From this study (2 months ago):
Have taken Dexilant before with no issue (and it worked like magic to relieve GERD symptoms). The other day I took first pill and felt bad pain/stiffness in my neck and jaw. Day 2: 1 hour after taking the pill, bad neck/jaw pain again. I am skipping today's pill as I feel a little better now. Will try again tomorrow if pain has fully subsided.
From this study (2 months ago):
dry itching skin... arms legs face hands feet back. took dexilant for 5weeks when i was first diagnosed with barrets esohpagus. Went of the medicine due to insurance and took pantoprazole... severe itching went off this medicine for 30 days. just started with the dexilant again. i did not have itching the first time i took dexilant for 5wks. but having itching now. not sure if it is the medicine or if it is a side effect that is contributing to my dry skin and dry mouth. if this is something that is serious or safe???
