Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I have vivid, intense dreams that affect quality of sleep. I wake up exhausted. They are constant. They started while on Dexilant but I can't convince my doctor that is what is causing it. I have severe reflux and have had pneumonia from acid aspiration so have to be on some kind of acid suppression. I took omeprazole some time ago and it had the same effect but not quite as bad. I am taking 60mg of Dexilant 2X day.
