Frequently asked questions for Ddr 60mg Capsule MR

Frequently asked questions for Dexlansoprazole

Ddr 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.
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. Ddr acts by decreasing the acid produced in the stomach and relieves the symptoms of GERD.
Q. Is Ddr better than lansoprazole?
Ddr 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 Ddr is better than lansoprazole, different patients may find that one works better than the other for them.
There are no withdrawal symptoms seen when you stop using Ddr as it has no addiction potential.
No, Ddr is not an over-the-counter product. It is a prescription medicine and is available only when prescribed by a physician.
Ddr 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.
Use of Ddr 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.
Long-term use of Ddr 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 Ddr with clopidogrel?
Ddr can be safely taken with clopidogrel. No clinically important changes in the action of clopidogrel have been seen when Ddr and clopidogrel are used together.
Q. Is Ddr better than esomeprazole?
Ddr and esomeprazole belong to the same class of medicines and works the same way. Some studies mention that Ddr 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.
Ddr is not a narcotic. It is a proton pump inhibitor used for the treatment of acidity, heartburn, intestinal ulcers and stomach ulcers.
Ddr is not a controlled substance. It is available when prescribed by a doctor.
Yes, Ddr does expire. Please check the expiry date written on the pack and it refers to the last day of that month. Do not use Ddr after the expiry date.
