Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) - Overview
Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) is a medication in managing people with specific conditions and complications associated with acid reflux. Using Push Health, people who need a dexlansoprazole prescription can request help from a local medical provider who can prescribe Dexilant when appropriate to do so.
What Is Dexilant Used For?
Dexlansoprazole (Dexilant), like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and pantoprazole (Protonix), belongs to a class of medications known as proton pump inhibitors. Dexilant capsules are indicated in the management of certain cases of erosive esophagitis, including treating heartburn and symptoms related to non-erosive GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Dexlansoprazole is thought to work by inhibiting the secretion of gastric acid through blocking an ion ATPase in the gastric parietal cell. Dexlansoprazole does interact with other medications so care should be taken when used concomitantly with other medications.
Dexilant - Dosage and Cost
Dexilant is available as delayed-release capsules of Dexilant 30 mg capsules and Dexilant 60 mg capsules. The starting regimen for a Dexilant prescription is typically Dexilant 30 mg once daily although different regimens might be used, depending on the prescribing medical provider. Dexilant capsules can be taken without consideration of food and should be swallowed whole. Dexlansoprazole itself is the R-enantiomer of lansoprazole and is found as a white crystalline powder that is only slightly soluble in water and is stable in light and has a half life of under two hours in healthy people. Dexilant is considered expensive, costing over $7 for one Dexilant 60 mg capsule at most pharmacies in the United States. Some insurance plans may help cover the cost of a dexlansoprazole prescription and Dexilant coupons can sometimes be found online or from the manufacturer. Dexilant capsules should be stored at 25° C.
Can I Buy Dexilant Online?
Dexilant can only be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States with a prescription from a medical provider. As such, one cannot just buy Dexilant online and dexlansoprazole capsules are not available OTC (over the counter). To get a prescription for dexlansoprazole, people can use Push Health to request help from a local medical provider who can prescribe Dexilant when appropriate and safe to do so.
Dexilant - Side Effects
Dexilant, like other PPI medications, can cause side effects. Side effects that can result from dexlansoprazole capsule use include nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, upper respiratory tract infections, flatulence and vomiting. Long-term use of dexlansoprazole can lead to a cyanocobalamin deficiency, interstitial nephritis, C. difficile diarrhea, bone fractures and low magnesium levels. Anyone with a known hypersensitivity or prior allergic reaction to dexlansoprazole or other proton pump inhibitors should not use the medication. Dexilant and alcohol should not be used at the same time. People planning to use Dexilant should discuss questions, concerns and possible side effects with one's medical provider and pharmacist before use.
