  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Seems like it is resistant to medications and it is recurring and seems like treatment just makes it more worse.

    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.

  • 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.
