I was diagnosed back in March with gastritis (not GERD, but releated so am posting here). My main symptom is nausea. I was given tecta for a week, which helped but the nausea soon returned. Thus, after a month or so, I went on tecta again...1 pill daily. I was still getting nausea though, and was also taking zantac and tums. So I asked my GP if we could try a different PPI. He gave me prevacid, which is better, but I still had nausea. We upped it to 2x a day for a week, which helped (and I didn't take zantac during this week), but now I'm back to 1x a day, and fear that the nausea is going to return.
My GP also mentioned a new PPI called delilant. It apparently releases some medicine int he morning and then more later...so the idea that a timed release may work better for me.
Anyone tried dexilant, and if so, how did it work for you? And if you've taken other PPIs, how does it compare? Thanks.
