I have been prescribe Dexilant 60 Mg 1 capsule twice daily and Sucralfate 1GM 3 times a day an hour after meals. I haven't taken them yet but it concern me what I have read on each one of them. I am 69.7 years old and many medicine have given me bad reactions. Just wondering if anyone has taken these medicine together and what side effect they had.

I didn't find any interactions listed between the two, but you should double check this information to be certain.

You can learn more Dexilant details here and you can learn more Sucralfate details here.

Were they both prescribed by the same doctor and filled by the same pharmacy, so your use of them is being monitored?

All medications carry the risk of side effects, that is just the nature of adding chemicals to the body.

However, if you are really that concerned, the best thing you can do would be to go see your doctor and consult with them about it. That way you can make the most informed decision possible on whether or not they're appropriate for you to take.

Has anyone taken both of these together that can offer any information?

I took Nexium three years and my specialist switched me to Dexilant, once a day. I started to have heart rhythm problems with skipping a beat occasionally, while on Nexium. I went to my primary care physician and went through several heart tests and no negative results. So, I read on the flyer with Nexium and it could possibility lower levels of magnesium after a year of use, and to check level of magnesium with blood work. So four weeks prior to my doctor’s (PCP) appointment, I purchased a low dose over the counter magnesium and started to take it with breakfast. I explained to my doctor what I did, and when he ordered blood work, he checked the magnesium levels. My levels were within the normal range. I think that the low magnesium levels were causing my heart rhythm problem. My heart is now normal. It took about a month. So I Google this issue and the research said when you take magnesium and Nexium or Dexilant, to take them at different times of the day, not at the same time. Things are all better.

In reading the side effects of Nexium I didn't like what I read. I would ask the physician about that.

I've been taking them together for at least a month now and haven't been having any bad side effects that I can see. I was just asking myself if it was okay to take them together since I wasn't quite sure my doctor knew I was taking both of them. So far, so good though. I'm 71, very sedentary.

How many milligrams of over the counter magnesium did you take? What was the name brand? I was having what I thought was heart problems myself. ER said it was my acid reflux and hietal hernia.

I take 400mg of magnesium every day, with no heart problems. I have suffered with GERDS for many years. I will be 70 this year. In fact I am going for a scope on Wed. Of next week. ER doctor put me onSucralfate 1GM, but my Gasto Dr. put me on Dexilant 60mg, as he likes this better. I dont seem to feel much better so I am wondering if I should take both as they do different things. Any feedback would be great.

I asked my doctor about the combined meds,and he said that if it helps and you tolerate both meds, then use them. So far, I feel better and I can eat again, being moderate with both the substance and the quantity of food
