Dexlansoprazole belongs to a class of medications known as proton pump inhibitors and is prescribed to alleviate the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which occurs when stomach acid flows back into the esophagus and causes heartburn and potential damage to the esophagus.

In addition to treating GERD, this medication is used to address esophagitis, an inflammation that can cause damage to esophageal tissue. Dexlansoprazole is also useful for maintaining esophagitis and promoting healing in adults and children aged 12 years and older by reducing stomach acid production.

Uses and Dosage

This medication is typically taken once daily with or without food. Your doctor may advise you to take the dose before the same meal each day if you experience symptoms after eating, for optimal results. Dosage and duration of treatment depend on your medical condition and response to therapy.

Do not crush or chew the capsules; swallow them whole. If swallowing the capsules is difficult, you may open them and sprinkle the contents onto 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) of applesauce. Consume the drug/food mixture immediately without chewing it. Do not prepare it in advance for future use, as this may damage the medication.

If you are administering this medication through a tube or with a liquid medication measuring device, seek advice from a healthcare professional for detailed instructions on how to mix and administer it appropriately.

Antacids can be taken alongside this medication if necessary. If you are also using sucralfate, take dexlansoprazole at least 30 minutes before sucralfate.

Take this medication consistently at the same time every day to achieve the most benefit from it. Even if you start to feel better, continue taking this medication for the entire prescribed treatment period.

If your condition persists or worsens, inform your doctor. The risk of adverse effects increases over time. Consult your doctor about the duration of your dexlansoprazole therapy.

Before taking this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist about your medical history, particularly if you have liver disease or lupus.

Certain symptoms may be indicative of a more severe condition. If you experience heartburn accompanied by dizziness, sweating, or lightheadedness, or chest/jaw/arm/shoulder pain, or unexplained weight loss, seek medical help promptly.

The use of proton pump inhibitors like dexlansoprazole increases the risk of bone fractures, particularly in the elderly, with long-term use or higher doses. Consult your doctor or pharmacist about preventing bone loss/fracture, such as taking calcium (e.g., calcium citrate) and vitamin D supplements.

Older adults are more prone to side effects, including bone loss and fractures and C. difficile infection.

During pregnancy, use dexlansoprazole only if necessary and after consulting with your doctor about the risks and benefits.
