I have started having palpations mostly after I eat about a week ago & wondered if it was a side effect?
Or I thought it was maybe it was from my vitamins. It works great for my reflux

Hairloss
I've been taking Dexilant for almost a year now, and within this time, I've noticed I'm losing my hair. It has thinned out considerably to the point that I thought I might lose all my hair. That's scary. Dexilant works great but I can't continue losing my hair. I also began have migraines.

I've been on dexilant for 7 mos. and about 2 mos. ago, I noticed more hair on the floor and my combs, more than normal. Approx 3 was I noticed my hair thinning much more, especially in the front. I had a light bulb moment, suspecting defiant to be the culprit. The drug hasn't helped me 100%, so at this point, going to quit altogether, hoping my acid indigestion doesn't get worse. Thanx for the posted comments. Helped in my decision.

I've been losing abnormal amount of hair in the past month and I've been on dexilant for about 5 months. It works great but I am stopping it immediately.

Totally losing my hair for almost two years. Seeing a laser specialist now and we are trying to figure out why. I have been on DHT blockers and low laser therapy as well as other inhibitors from making my hair fall out.. So far nothing has helped. Today when I saw him he asked about the medicines I was on and I told him Dexilabt for over 5 yrs due to a original a stomach ulcer I had.
Culd the Dexilabt be the culprit .??? I think I will stop taking it for awhile and see if it helps. He did tell
