Insurance won't cover Dexilant
Post a Reply
After roughly 6 years of taking Dexilant 60mg my insurance will no longer cover it. Are there any OTC medications I can use to take its place? Keep in mind Dexilant is the only one that's worked thus far.

I am experiencing loose stools 3-4 times in a day. Please advise. ## Have you seen a doctor to get to the root of what is causing your problem? There many different things that can cause you to have frequent bowel movements and the best solution is usually getting to the root of that and correcting the problem. It could be something you are eating, another medication you are taking or any one of several other options. I am not sure what country you are in, so I don't know what's available to you, but in the U.S. we can purchase Loperamide over the counter for assistance with such problems.

Why is the package insert ABSOLUTELY SILENT on WHEN the Altosec 20 is to be taken? ## Hello, Oubaas 74! How are you? Because there is really no specific time of day that it must be taken, other than before a meal. It is classified by the U.S. FDA as a proton pump inhibitor that helps reduce the amount of acid produced by your stomach to help treat or prevent conditions, such as heartburn, GERD, gastritis and ulcers. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## From:- Oubaas 74. Thank you for your reply, this is the 1st Time that anyone has told me to take "Altosec 20mg" BEFORE a meal. Please note that the package insert is SILENT on this advice!!! Since my Acid Reflux problem (???) is at ni...

razo d tablet

I am a GERD patient, I am advised to take Razo D capsule by doctor, but this capsule is giving only temporary relief, is there any medication to cure Acid Reflux permanently? ## Hi, Ginnela! Sorry about the problem that you're having. However a cure, per se, is really a matter of time. By the time you're feeling the results of the reflux, that means some damage has been done and it has to heal, which is why the medication seems to only provide temporary relief. You also need to watch what you eat for awhile, such as staying away from alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods, because all of those can raise the level of acid that your stomach produces. Learn more Rabeprazole details here and you can learn more Domperidone details here. And the reason I said "cure, per se" is beca...

I have tried many kinds of Vitamins, multivits however none of them seemed to help me at all.

Which i could feel the sensations of something pushing up through the eosophagus n throat, and causing me difficulty of breathing. I tried Usana's multivits n chelated mineral.. which didnt do any good to myself, not even any kinds of Vitamin C which i bought from the pharmacies. Therefore i think my body or i would stomach is very very sensitive and it cannot tolerate any acidic compound...
