I presently take Nexium for reflux. Is there a possible interaction between DEXILANT and NEXIUM?
19 Aug 2010
Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) and Nexium (esomeprazole) belong to the same drug class called proton pump inhibitors. They decrease the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
It is not necessary to use these together as both do the same thing ... so there should be no interaction.
