Hairloss
Yes, I've noticed it too, especially in front. Also after 3 mis. I have hives and suspect dexilant.

I have been on Dexilant for 6 months and yes, I have noticed my hair falling out and getting thin, that's why I'm on this site to see if anyone else has this side effect.

Drowsiness and Prilosec
Husband noticed I was having psychotic episodes on omeprazole. Doctor denied this as a side effect until he got on his computer to prove me wrong. He apologized when he found out he was wrong. I was removed from it and now just drink pickle juice when needed.
JessicaS.  |  August 1, 2014
my husband has been prescribed this medication, but the pills are on 20 mg @, and dosage varies from 1 every other day to 1 per day, depending on the severity of GERD.
