I have been taking Dexilant for 5 days and it has been doing wonders for my GERD that has been brought on by my 6 week battle with what the Drs. think is a upper respitory virus. Then tonight I unexpectedly had a GERD coughing spell. What can bring this on when the Dexilant was doing such a good job.
Can GERD flare up even when taking Dexilant?

It sounds like your GERD is causing some bronchial problems..I was diagnosed in Feb w/ asthma & didn't even know I had GERD ..after a endoscopy from GI Dr I was told I had GERD & put on dexilant 60 mg, Prilosec 20 mg& Zantac 300 mg per day..I was sooo sick w/ nausea, lost weight cause I couldn't eat anything without it burning me up from my tummy to my throat! it is what caused my asthma..After mos of this I got a 2nd opinion & turns out my dr totally missed a HUGE hiatal hernia which was causing all of this!!! I'm currently 5 wks post op( hiatal hernia repair, nissen fundoplication reflux surgery) & I'm feeling sooo much better!Ive really been sick off & on for sometime & never knew it was all related to hernia..research this & see if you may find some answers .Im off all of my reflux meds now:) good luck hope this helps
