Kapidex and rash

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? ## 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 wa...

Tp 60

light blue capsule with the imprint TP on the top and 60 in the bottom. any clues? ## Kai, I think the imprint code is kind of hard to read, but it should say TAP 60 (where the TAP is kind of like a logo with the letter A coming off the T so I can see why you might have mistaken it as just TP - just so you know, the logo belongs to Takeda Pharmaceuticals). At any rate, the blue capsule which you are describing is Kapidex 60 mg, which is used "in the treatment and maintenance of patients with erosive oesophagitis and non-erosive gastro-oesophageal reflux disease" [1] You can read more about this drug at: Do you have any questions or information to add?

c k kapidex

why kalium durule caused diarrhea? what is the scientific explaination for that question? ## I don't know what the scientific explanation is and I am not sure that there really is one that explains it. Medication side effects occur, even with supplements, because you are putting a new substance into your body and it isn't used to it.. Some people's bodies adjust well and do not react, at all. While others can experience severe problems from it and no one really knows why this happens. If you are experiencing diarrhea, make sure to drink more liquids, to avoid dehydration and contact your doctor if it becomes a severe problem. Are there any questions or comments?

Symptoms

Re: KAPIDEX..Racing..heart beat, usually occurs at night. usual and customary for me....60 BPM. now! > 110 BPM..resting! Constipation, I am 56 YO, heart patient. Never in my life have I experienced this degree of discomfort, not to mention the danger of straining at the stool associated with acute coronary MI or stroke.While on Kapidex I felt profoundly depressed. This symptom ended with DC of drug. I am now dealing with a virulent constipation. Anyone experience similar symtoms? The PDR does not mention these symptoms as anything but rare? ## I have been removed from taking Lexapro and told to cut my Lipitor 10mg tablets in half. What will be my withdrawal symptoms and how long will yhet last?

Kapidex drug interactions or side effects?

Had ONE dose of Kapidex this morning. Never had one before. One hour later I started with severe aching all over, diahrrea, an echoing rattling in my head (yes, I've already done about as many jokes about that as I can think of :-) ) a really bad headache, dizziness, nausea, and muscles feel tight. Other than that I'm fine!!! Could this be the result of drug interaction--I take about seven antidepressants, plus meds for Crohn's Disease. Or--are these complaints just side effects? It's an elongated, small turquoise capsule. ## I talked with the gastroenterologist on call. He told me not to take it anymore. Too many side effects that didn't make sense. Being a Saturday, the doctor suggested to check with my regular doctor next Monday. The two main things that especiall...

kapidex side effects

I have been having bouts of diariee since I started taking this medicine. It has been 5 days and I'm tired of running to the bathroom day and nite - washing rugs and floors. ## Kapidex contains the active ingredient Dexlansoprazole, this is a proton pump inhibitor used to treat conditions such as heartburn and GERD. What you are experiencing is a common side effect of these types of medications. It should start to taper off in severity as your body gets used to the medication. If it doesn't, you should speak with your doctor as this may not be the right medication for you. Do you have any other questions? ## The doctor gave me a 60 mg dose. Is that too high to start out with? Also--if this causes diarrhea, I don't want my Crohn's to come out of remission.

took kapidex for 40 days, stopped 5 days ago and now my insides are on fire and have dirreah. How long do the withdrawl effects last ## Kapidex contains the active ingredient Dexslansoprazole, it is a Proton Pump Inhibitor used to treat conditions such as heartburn and GERD. That said, 40 days is not too long of a time to be on this, though some of what you are experiencing is probably a rebound effect from stopping it abruptly. The worst of the withdrawal effects should start to taper off after a week to 10 days, though some may still linger for a little while afterwards. Have you spoken to your doctor about this?
