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!

Have tried a few drug for my problem. Not sure why others have such severe reactions to this drug but I have none. Was previously on Acephix. I love it I have had these issues for over 10 years and nothing worked as good as this.
