My reflux is so bad that the scar tissue has to be dialted once a year. I was on Acidphex but this works better. I am so pleased with the results -- no more supplementing with TUMS. As far as weight gain goes -- maybe its because we can actually enjoy eating again!

To Leese, yes, eye swelling is a side effect of this drug. I am experiencing severe tremors in my hands and forearms. Has anyone else had this as a side effect?

Comment:
Dexilant has worked very well for me with very few side effects experienced by OTC drugs. I have been using this for a year at 60 MG dose. Perhaps a bit of weight gain but I am more concerned by joint aches and stiffness which I think may be caused by this drug, although I have not seen anyone else with this complaint.
