A bad fall in 2006. Required pain management MRIS, numerous tests and a cervical and lumbar surgery in 2007 to correct. Two Rear end car accidents while I was at a stop light. One in 2011 and one in 2015. I already had spinal stenosis and degenerative disc desease genetically passed on. Problems with stomach aches and anxiety since 5 years of age. Post menopausal depression after pregnancy. In 2001 had to have upper gi surgery on saphagus due to acid coming up throat (gerd) after every drink or meal. They cut 5 cuts and did the surgery laproscopy, with less down time...I have a difficult time burping or throwing up and foul smelling flatulence daily at 52. I had another cervical fusion this year 2016. I was diagnosed with diabetes from an anti anxiety and depressant seroquel that heightens my blood sugar from the 90s to 362 or over 500 at times if I don't take met forming two times a day, Januvia once a day, Victoria 1.8 injection b4 breakfast and lantus split up twice per day. Despite altering diet a lot, walking twice a day and swimming 4 times per week, and at 30 mcgs a day of lantus I'd bloat up like a pregnant woman and my feet stung like wasps every afternoon since the auto accident. When my sugars level out after surgeries or steroid shots in back or neck and shoulder for pain control, I will have to use more lantus which triggers a flare up of severe ibs string to go and at time diverticulitis. I already take fiber and prebiotic vitamins. I began getting ibs with diarehha in 2008 or 2009 after lumbar surgery. I fought with it for years to no avail. Anyone out there with a suggestion or similar problem.? How did you control the ibs with constipation on pain management and the lantus for diabetes?
I've been taking dexilant for almost 2 years. I take magnesium along with it because dexilant really does lower my magnesium level. My question is if you're on dexilant for years, what will the long term side effects be? Does the drug cause cancer? I need to know all the facts on this medication before I approach my doctor about it. Thank you.
I'm 57 and had an endoscopy which revealed an hiatal hernia. I have tried every OTC drug for Gerd to no avail. My gastroenterologist prescribed Dexilant. It's not covered by my insurance and is really expensive. For the first three months, I found I could take it every other day and it worked great! A couple weeks ago, I started experiencing symptoms again (extreme heartburn and discomfort) so I upped my dosage to daily as prescribed. Over the last two weeks while taking Dexilant daily, I started having shortness of breath and wheezing. I can't walk from my bedroom to my kitchen without gasping for air. I stopped the Dexilant today. Has anyone else experienced this? Any idea how long it will be before my breathing returns to normal? This is awful!

I has been taking dexilant regularly. I just found out that my lipase is high 73ul. Normal ranges as per literatute 3-60ul or 0 to 70ul. I am wondering if the dexilant is the cause. Thank you support group.
Hi there, I'm on day two of Dexilant, it's my last hope for treatment before considering surgery. I've tried Nexium and Protonic and they both failed to relieve my reflux. I am feeling so sick to my stomach. Whether I eat or not, I still feel nauseated. Have any of you found relief? How long did it take before you got used to the medication? Thank you for your feedback! Crystal
i started taking Dexilant 12 days back and now having back pain. Nothing else changed in my life so I feel this medication must be causing it. I stopped taking it. It's been 3 days now but the pain is not getting any better. I don't know what to do as I need to contr acid reflux as it has inflamed my throat so much that it's hard for me to swolllw food. I will talk to the ENT but I'm not sure she will agree that this drug is causing it.
