Dexilant contains Dexlansoprazole, which is really in the same class as the Omeprazole, but they can be used together if your doctor deems it necessary and is monitoring you.

They both reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, to treat or prevent conditions such as ulcers, heartburn, GERD and Gastritis.



The only problem that some people run into is that they sometimes find out that they aren't producing enough stomach acid and it may take longer to digest foods, or they may experience nausea and vomiting, so make sure you watch for that and contact your doctor, if it occurs.

Are there any other questions?

Which medication is better to treat Ulcers, heartburn or GERD? Dexilant or Omeprazole. Dexilant is more expensive than Omeprazole. Thanks in advance. BJ.

I've had a cough since July. I now have cracked/bruised ribs from coughing. I've been to gastrointestinal Drs since my late 20s. I'm 73 now and been on several ppi meds. Now on dexikant one a day and Zantac 3x daily. Cough still bad. And now rib problem. Desperate now. Can you provide suggestions to try?
