Frequently asked questions about dexlansoprazole
What is dexlansoprazole used to treat?
Dexlansoprazole is prescribed to treat conditions caused by an excess of stomach acid. This includes gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Acid reflux is a common condition that occurs when stomach acid rushes back into the tube that connects your mouth and stomach (the esophagus). Recurring acid reflux is known as Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), in which stomach acid (acid reflux) might irritate your esophageal lining.
Acid reflux affects a large number of people at some point in their lives. GERD is defined as mild acid reflux occurring at least twice a week or moderate to severe acid reflux occurring at least once a week.
The backward flow of stomach acid from the stomach into the esophagus can cause inflammation and damage to the esophagus. An excess of stomach acid can cause complications such as heartburn and stomach ulcers.
How does dexlansoprazole work?
Dexlansoprazole is classified as a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). These drugs work by inhibiting the production of acid made by glands in the stomach lining. By reducing levels of stomach acid in your gastroesophageal system, dexlansoprazole helps prevent and treat symptoms of acid reflux and GERD such as esophagus inflammation, heartburn, and ulcers.
What are the common side effects of dexlansoprazole?
The use of dexlansoprazole may cause side effects. Talk to your health care provider if these adverse reactions do not go away within a few days or become severe.
This is not a complete list of adverse effects – though these are the most common. Seek medical attention right away if you experience symptoms such as swelling, difficulty breathing, rash, changes in heartbeat, or severe diarrhea while taking dexlansoprazole.
As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with and any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before taking dexlansoprazole. Dexlansoprazole can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are planning to become pregnant, are pregnant, or are currently breastfeeding before starting treatment with this medication.
What is the typical starting dose of dexlansoprazole?
Dexlansoprazole is commonly administered as a delayed-release capsule. Delayed-release capsules are prescribed for the treatment of GERD and erosive esophagitis – a condition in which the lining of the esophagus has become severely damaged due to the backup of acid in the stomach.
For erosive esophagitis: Adults and children over 12 are prescribed a starting dose of 60 mg of dexlansoprazole to be taken once a day. This dosage may be adjusted as needed. Swallow the delayed-release capsule whole. This medication can be taken with food.
For GERD: Adults and children over 12 are prescribed a starting dose of 30 mg of dexlansoprazole to be taken once a day. This dosage may be adjusted as needed. Swallow the delayed-release capsule whole. This medication can be taken with food.
Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of dexlansoprazole without first consulting your doctor. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
