Dexilant Indication

Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) belongs to the family of medications called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). It is used to treat erosive esophagitis (acid-related damage to the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach), maintain the healing of erosive esophagitis, and to treat heartburn associated with GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) (GERD). Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) works by reducing the amount of acid the stomach produces.

Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Dexilant Dosage

For the treatment of erosive esophagitis, the usual dose of Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) is 60 mg once daily for up to 8 weeks.

To maintain the healing of erosive esophagitis, the usual dose is 30 mg once daily for up to 6 months. In cases where the erosive esophagitis was considered moderate to severe, the dose may be increased to 60 mg taken once daily.

For heartburn associated with GERD, the usually dose is 30 mg once daily for 4 weeks.

Adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 may use the same doses as adults for treatment of these conditions. To maintain the healing of erosive esophagitis, the usual length of treatment for adolescents is up to 4 months.

Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) can be taken with or without food. It should be swallowed whole with lots of water. Alternatively, the contents of the capsule can be sprinkled on one tablespoon of applesauce and swallowed immediately. The granules should not be chewed.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children.

Dexilant Precautions

There may be an interaction between Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Dexilant Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole).

Diarrhea: When gastric acid is decreased, the number of bacteria normally in the digestive system increases. Occasionally, this can cause serious infection in the digestive tract. If you experience watery, foul-smelling bowel movements after starting to take Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole), contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Fractures: Long-term use of proton-pump inhibitors has been associated with an increased risk for osteoporosis-related fracture of the hip, wrist, or spine, particularly for people who take Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) for a year or longer. If you have Osteoporosis or have risk factors for developing osteoporosis, discuss with your doctor how Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver problems: People with liver problems should discuss with their doctor how Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) may affect their medical condition, how their medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Magnesium levels: In rare instances, Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) may cause low magnesium levels in people who take Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) for a prolonged period of time. Low magnesium may occur after at least 3 months, but usually after a year of treatment. If you have low magnesium levels in your blood, you should discuss with your doctor how Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Methotrexate interaction: Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole), like other medications in this group, may interact with methotrexate when the two medications are used at the same time. This combination may lead to higher than expected amounts of methotrexate in the body and can cause serious side effects, including kidney damage, irregular heartbeat, Anemia, or infection. If you take Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) and are also going to receive a dose of methotrexate, discuss with your doctor how Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Other stomach problems: Even if you experience improvement in acid-related symptoms, it is still possible to have serious underlying stomach problems such as stomach cancer. Talk to your doctor if you have other symptoms of stomach problems such as loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, a bloated feeling after eating, changes in bowel habits, or unexplained weight loss or fatigue.

Vitamin B12: Long-term use of Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) may lead to vitamin B12 deficiency. If you are a vegetarian or have low vitamin B12 levels, discuss with your doctor whether any special monitoring is required.

Pregnancy: Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) should not be taken during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) have not been established for children under 12 years old.
