Side Effects of Taking Dexilant Long Term?
2 Replies RSS
Does Dexilant keep my body from getting nutrients? Wondering if I need to supplement with something more than Magnesium. Also wondering what studies say about taking it for years? I have a hiatal hernia, so there is no relief in sight for me. ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? I've not seen any reports on that, so far, however I'll do some more searching and post back if I do find anything. As to long-term use, yes, it does increase the risk of hip fractures. It seems that long-term use of all medications that the FDA classifies as proton pump inhibitors can do that. They may also cause side effects, such as nausea, flatulence and stomach pain. How long have you been taking it? Usually, these are only used for a maximum of 16 weeks, before taking a break from them. ## I have been on...

Lomitol for colostomy/stoma patient
3 Replies RSS
Will lomitol harden stools or just slow down quantity and frequency? I have permanent coloscopy (about a foot removed)and some days I poop most of day. I take 2 in am and 2 in pm. Also take Imodium around 6/7 tabs daily. This combination helps but some days I still produce a little at a time. ## I reside in Fort Mill South Carolina. I am going to try reducing the Imodium I take daily and take for Lomotil every day four times daily and perhaps take two Imodium before bed ## It is really hard to say the effect it may have on any given person that tries it. According to NIH reports, for some, it may slow down the amount of bowel movements, and possibly make them more solid, but for others it could actually cause constipation as a side effect. Other side effects may include nausea, dizzines...

Are you on any other medications?

Medicare has denied my Dexilant 60mg
4 Replies RSS
Medicare just quit covering my Dexilant prescription and I am having acid reflux horrible again. My dr is trying to get them to approve it because nothing else I've tried ever helped noticably. What other GERD med is most similar to Dexilant? It has to be a generic form, or medicare won't cover it. ## Hello, Cherie! How are you? The reason they don't want to cover it is because it's not available as a generic, but there are several others that are, plus some are available over the counter. Two would be Lansoprazole and Omeprazole, so you may want to ask your doctor about trying them. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have been denied dexilant too, and cannot get help with payment.Medicare doesn't pay for it, and neither would Florida Blue before I got Medi...
