I have been taking the 60mg capsule for a week after literally taking Nexium for years.

Comment:
Had been dealing with severe reflux for more than a year. Had just taken OTC products-antacids, prilosec gaviscon. Finally went to the Dr and was put on Dexilant. Immediately had relief-no more GERD, heartburn or indigestion. The Dr had me try to get off of teh med after 2 1/2 months and symptoms came back in four days! Thankfully I am now back on it and symptom free again!
