I have a history of heart rhythm problems..
8 Oct 2010
it did my mother, her heartbeat dropped down to 40 beats per minute, she was dizzy, neddle like pain in her legs, sweating and pain in her left side chest, back, neck area. We took her to the e-room for a possible heart attack she was admitted to the hospital, the doctor researched her drugs, took away the Dexilant and her heart beat has been normal and all of the other symptons have subsided.

I too have heart problems (Hypertension) for which I am taking Bystolic. I have not yet experienced any increase in heart rate or non-acid related chest pain as a result of Dexilant.
Your doctor should know, and he must tell you if there is a cause for concern.
To my understanding, Dexilant is relatively new to the market so we have to wait and see what the long-term side effects may be.
