Dexilant vs. Nexium

Filed under: acid reflux,medication,medicine — Tags: , , — robertprice @ 12:10 am

Nexium-vs-DexilantAcid reflux, also called GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflex Disease), can be a painful condition that allows acid to build up in your stomach causing a burning sensation in your chest or abdomen. The acid can also travel from the stomach into the esophagus causing a very painful burning sensation. The good news is there are drugs on the market that can successfully help you deal with this issue and diminish the pain associated with it.

Dexilant and Nexium are both common drugs used to treat this condition, but it may be difficult to determine which one is right for you. Below is some vital information about both drugs to help you compare them and find the right one for you.

How Dexilant and Nexium Work

Both Dexilant and Nexium are proton pump inhibitors. They both work much that same way, which is to reduce the amount of acid that is being produced in the stomach. With less acid production, it is less likely for the acid to travel up into the esophageal area, causing the burning sensation. The goal of treatment is to reduce the number of times acid reflux symptoms occur and to diminish the pain associated with the disease.

Dosage

These medications must be taken on a daily basis for a set period of time. Patients who use Nexium will take a dosage of between 20mg and 40mg per day. Each patient is likely to begin their regiment at 20mg or 30mg, but that can be increased as much as 50 percent or up to 40 mg if necessary. The patient will continue take this medication for at least four to eight weeks. On the other hand, patients who use Dexilant will be given a dosage of 30mg per day. These patients will continue to take this drug for a four-week period, at which point they will be reevaluated.

Side Effects

These two drugs also have a series of different side effects. Nexium’s side effects include dizziness, muscle cramps, muscle spasms, anxiety, confusion, diarrhea, headaches, seizures, coughing, and increased heart rate.
Dexilant’s side effects include diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, gas, stomach pain, cold symptoms, and upper respiratory tract infections.

Conclusion

Dexilant is the latest acid reflex drug to be approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), but initial studies have proven it to be as effective as Nexium. Dexilant is also less expensive, which may make is a better option for some.
Talk to your doctor about your option and work with your doctor to find the best treatment for you.

ObamaCare and CIPA Canadian Pharmacies

Filed under: Online Pharmacy News — Tags: , , — robertprice @ 10:41 pm

obamacare-cipa-canadian-pharmaciesMedications that are necessary have always been expensive and it seems that the onset of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare, is going to make that a reality for many Americans. The act states that out of pocket expenses, deductibles, and co-pays for Americans healthcare costs will be capped at $6,350.00 for most families.

This is discerning news to those who struggle with chronic conditions and require prescription medications on an ongoing basis. Moreover, many patients in the US may find that their prescriptions are becoming more expensive, are harder to find, or are not covered by their healthcare plan at all.

Online Pharmacies: How they can help you

Even with ObamaCare, there is a solution available to families who are struggling to meet their expenses for vital pharmaceuticals: online Canadian pharmacies. These pharmacies are an affordable way for Americans to purchase prescription medications at very low prices – up to 80% less than the American pharmaceutical prices.

More than 21% of Americans go without their medications because they cannot afford them. Tod Cooperman, the president of PharmacyChecker.com states that, “As more Americans access health care under the new programs, more prescriptions will be generated and the amount of unfilled prescriptions may further increase as people find the brand name drugs unaffordable in the U.S.” For just a common medication the cost can run upwards of $1000.00 annually. Accordingly, Cooperman also stated that “It is a ridiculous situation, but the only way many Americans can get affordable prices on brand-name American drugs is to buy them outside the country.”

CIPA Online Pharmacies

Online pharmacies, like Can Drug Store, provide an easy, convenient, and affordable way for US consumers to purchase prescription medications, but it is important to find out if they are a reputable organization that is CIPA certified. CIPA is the Canadian International Pharmacy Association through which online Canadian pharmacy becomes certified as a legitimate and safe pharmacy. All CIPA associated pharmaceutical companies adhere to the highest of standards, and they all have more than a decade of impeccable safety standards.

Can Drug Store is a CIPA certified pharmacy that can help US citizens purchase affordable prescription medications.
