Buy Dexilant brand or generic Dexlansoprazole prescription drug from Canada
Why is Dexilant prescribed?
Dexlansoprazole, with the brand name Dexilant, is prescribed to treat adults and children over 12 years with symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. It is not established if the drug is effective or safe in children below 12 years of age, but it should be noted that it is not effective in treating children below 1 year.
What does it do?
Patients suffering from GERD experience symptoms such as frequent heartburn and acid reflux. Dexlansoprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI). PPIs act by blocking an enzyme that is responsible for acid secretion which in turn decreases stomach acid and the frequency of the symptoms.
How should I take it?
Dexilant is currently available in 30mg and 60mg capsule. Each capsule should be taken as a whole (do not split) by mouth with or without food. For patients who have difficulty swallowing, mix the capsule’s contents in water, apple sauce or apple juice. For patients who are receiving nutrition via a nasogastric tube, you can mix the contents of the capsule with water and use a syringe to flush it in the tube.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Dexilant?
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history especially if you have low magnesium or vitamin B12 levels in the blood, lupus, bone, or liver problems and if you have any allergies to Dexlansoprazole or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
