I have broken out in a rash around my neck, shoulders, arms and legs really bad. Didn't know what was the cause. Went to dr. he said it looked like a inward reaction and nothing topical. Well, I had started taking Dexilant (Kapidex) just about the time I broke out. My question is ....those of you who have experienced this? How long did the rash last after you stopped taken it?

itchy reaction Says:

So glad to know I am not alone. I started Delixant/Kapidex 3 weeks ago.After about a week I had a rash on my hands and arms. I continued taking the medicine because I was not fully convinced it was the culprit. After another week my itchy red rash had spread from arms to the rest of my body. I called the doctor and they said to come so they could rule at eczema. Byt the time I call in to see the doctor I was so dizzy and itchy. They said it looked like a reaction and to stop imediately. I stopped taking it and it has been about a week and I still itching and covered in a red rash, but the dizziness is gone. OH, It itches like Crazy!!! I hope this ends soon

I took only One Kapidex on Friday afternoon and by evening I was itching all over my body and rashes and bumps from itching so much. Its non stop itching and even after taking 2 benadryl on Saturday it did NOT help. Its Monday now and I wonder how long this will last. Stupid Japanese Company. I hope they get sued

I've noticed itchiness too...it was at it's worst the first day after I stopped taking Dexilant 60 mg, but it's calmed down a bit. I say only a bit because it's been five days and I still itch! The weird thing is that I tend to itch more after a shower, especially my scalp.

I've made no changes in the soap or shampoo I've been using and never itched before, so I have no idea what it is. I also notice my skin is redder (not necessarily hives, but reddish in spots) after I get out of a shower, and my eyes feel dry...any one else have the same symptoms? How long, after quitting Dexilant, did these symptoms take to go away?

Rashes can be a very discomforting skin problem. Some of the home remedies can be very useful to reduce major symptoms. Like these: Aloe Vera, Oatmeal Bath, Olive Oil and more. You can read about more details here: ihomeremedy.net/home-remedies-for-rashes

My ENT suspected I have GERD and put me on Dexilant. After a month, he added Zantac and after another month he added Prilosec. After taking 3 kinds of meds, still I have dry cough and chronic throats clearing. Also, before I started Prilosec I developed itchy rashes and it has now spread all over the body. Not sure if Dexilant is causing this?
