General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

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
