I can't prove that they were related, but about
a week or two after taking dexilant I started getting stomach pains and heartburn (started taking it for lpr with no heartburn). Turns out I now have gastritis. I want to get off the dexilant because it doesn't really seem to be helping my throat (my throat actually felt better before the ppi treatment) but my ENT wants me to finish the 3 month treatment. Sucks. I wish doctors would try more alternative treatments before throwing ppis at people.
