ugh on Feb, 27, 2014:
After being prescribed valtrex while in the military i too got colitis...ulcerative colitis back in 2004. I told my doc it was linked but he swore it wasn't. I keep my colitis under control thru my diet. I refuse to take medicine.

Wow, glad I came across this study. I was prescribed this drug by the VA in 2006 to help with some muscle spasms. I think I took it for about a month...a couple of weeks in I could not have a bowel movement. My VA doc took me off of the meds, but then I started with the bloody diarrhea. In 2007 I was diagnosed with colitis. My doctor had said chemical colitis, but I wasn't too sure what that meant. I was only looking on the internet because I am having this attack of colitis for the last month and it sucks.
From this study (3 weeks 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 (4 weeks 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???
