    Dexlansoprazole

    Q.

    For how long should I take dexlansoprazole?
    Dexlansoprazole is used in adults for 4 weeks to treat heartburn related to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in which the acid from your stomach enters the food pipe (esophagus) and can damage its lining. It is used for up to 8 weeks to heal acid-related damage to the lining of the esophagus (called reflux esophagitis or RE) and may be for up to 6 months to continue healing of erosive esophagitis and relief of heartburn depending on your condition.

    Q.

    How does dexlansoprazole work for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease?
    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) happens when there is a high acid secretion your stomach and it enters your food pipe (esophagus) and causes a burning feeling in your chest (heartburn) or throat, sour taste or burping. Dexlansoprazole acts by decreasing the amount of acid produced in the stomach, thereby relieving the symptoms of GERD.

    Q.

    Is dexlansoprazole better than lansoprazole?
    Dexlansoprazole is an r-enantiomer of lansoprazole. An enantiomer is one of the two molecules that are mirror images of each other and are non-superimposable. Although there is no data or research done to determine whether dexlansoprazole is better than lansoprazole, different patients may find that one works better than the other for them.
