Frequently asked questions for DDR 30MG CAPSULE MR

Frequently asked questions for Dexlansoprazole

Q. For how long should I take dexlansoprazole?
Dexlansoprazole can be used for different durations depending on the condition. It is used in adults for 4 weeks to treat heartburn related to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in which acid from stomach enters food pipe (esophagus). It is used for 8 weeks to heal acid-related damage to the food pipe (called reflux esophagitis or RE) and for up to 6 months to continue healing of erosive esophagitis.
Q. How does dexlansoprazole work for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease?
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) happens when high acid secretion in your stomach enters your food pipe (esophagus) and causes a burning feeling in chest (heartburn) or throat, sour taste or burping. Dexlansoprazole acts by decreasing the acid produced in the stomach and relieves 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.
Q. Are there any withdrawal symptoms associated with the use of dexlansoprazole?
There are no withdrawal symptoms seen when you stop using dexlansoprazole as it has no addiction potential.
Q. Is dexlansoprazole available over the counter?
No, dexlansoprazole is not an over-the-counter product. It is a prescription medicine and is available only when prescribed by a physician.
Q. Does long term use of dexlansoprazole can increase the risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures?
Dexlansoprazole can cause calcium deficiency and hence an increased risk of bone fractures on long term use. Normally the acid in the stomach helps in the release of ionized calcium which is important for calcium absorption. As Dexlansoprazole decreases the stomach acid, it also decreases calcium absorption and an increases the risk of bone fractures.
Q. Can dexlansoprazole cause diarrhea?
Use of dexlansoprazole may increase your risk of getting severe diarrhea. This diarrhea may be caused by an infection (Clostridium difficile) in your intestines. Consult your doctor if you have watery stool, stomach pain, and fever that does not go away while you are taking this medicine.
Q. Can long term use of dexlansoprazole cause magnesium deficiency?
Long-term use of dexlansoprazole can lower your magnesium levels in patients taking multiple daily doses for a year or longer (at least 3 months). Get your magnesium levels checked at regular intervals.Tell your doctor if you experience seizures, dizziness, abnormal or fast heartbeat, jitteriness, jerking movements or shaking (tremors), muscle weakness, spasms of the hands and feet, cramps, muscle aches or spasm of the voice box.
Q. Can I take dexlansoprazole with clopidogrel?
Dexlansoprazole can be safely taken with clopidogrel. No clinically important changes in the action of clopidogrel have been seen when dexlansoprazole and clopidogrel are used together.
Q. Is dexlansoprazole better than esomeprazole?
Dexlansoprazole and esomeprazole belong to the same class of medicines and works the same way. Some studies mention that dexlansoprazole helps in better control of symptoms like heartburn as compared to esomeprazole, however, there is no definitive evidence for this and different patients may find that one works better for them than the other.
Q. Is dexlansoprazole a narcotic?
Dexlansoprazole is not a narcotic. It is a proton pump inhibitor used for the treatment of acidity, heartburn, intestinal ulcers and stomach ulcers.
Q. Is dexlansoprazole a controlled substance?
Dexlansoprazole is not a controlled substance. It is available when prescribed by a doctor.
