I have been taking it for stomach pain for one week, and it hasn't helped much. I have intermittant attacks of upper abdominal pain. I can go for months with nothing and the have an attack that lasts for weeks. I've had a cat scan and colonoscopy and endoscopy and was found to have an inflamation about a year ago. DOes this med. work for stomach pain that is not due to gerd or acid reflux.
Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) is a proton pump inhibitor. It works by decreasing the amount of acid produced by the stomach.
Dexlansoprazole is used to treat certain conditions in which there is too much acid in the stomach. It is used to treat erosive esophagitis or "heartburn" caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease.
If Dexilant was to work for you you should have noticed its effects by now.
You should see your doctor again.
All the best.
