Dexilant (generic name: dexlansoprazole) is a member of the proton pump inhibitors (PPI) family. It is also marketed with the brand name Kapidex.

Dexlansoprazole inhibits the secretion of acid in the digestive system. It is used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition in which the backward flow of acid from the stomach causes heartburn and could go on to injure the esophagus. The main symptoms are heartburn and inflammation of the esophagus.

Dexilant is suitable for the treatment of children 12 years and older.

The drug is meant to begin relieving the symptoms soon after the start of its use and works as long as it is taken according to the instructions. The duration of its use is usually up to four months in adolescents and up to six months in adults. In some cases, a doctor may recommend a longer duration of intake.


Dexilant is a delayed-release formula that releases the medication about one hour after taking it and continues to be released for another four to five hours. The capsule must be taken by mouth, with or without food. It is usually taken once a day unless the prescribing doctor decides otherwise.

Please read the manufacturer’s Product Insert that comes with the medication.

There have been reports of some mild side effects. If these symptoms worsen or do not clear up within a few days, consult with a doctor or pharmacist:

  • gas
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea

Some other more serious side effects can be experienced. If any of these symptoms are felt, call a doctor, or get emergency medical help immediately:

  • Rash; hives; itching; swelling of the eyes, face, lips, mouth, throat, or tongue; difficulty breathing or swallowing; or hoarseness.
  • Blistering, peeling, or bleeding skin.
  • Sores on lips, nose, mouth, or genitals.
  • Swollen glands.
  • Fever or flu-like symptoms.
  • Irregular, fast, or pounding heartbeat.
  • Muscle spasms or uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body.
  • Excessive tiredness; lightheadedness; dizziness; or seizures.
  • Severe diarrhea with watery stools.
  • Stomach pain.
  • A fever that does not go away.
  • New or worsening joint pain.
  • A rash on the cheeks or arms that is sensitive to sunlight.
  • Increased or decreased urination or blood in the urine.

Not all side effects are listed here. Consult a healthcare provider if you experience these or other unexpected effects.

Dexilant is typically prescribed when there are signs of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). GERD occurs when stomach acid repeatedly flows back into the esophagus, which connects the mouth and stomach. This is acid reflux, which can irritate the lining of the esophagus.

Some people experience acid reflux occasionally, but when it happens repeatedly, it can cause GERD. In extreme cases, surgery may be needed to ease symptoms.

The most common signs and symptoms of GERD are:

  • Heartburn, usually after eating. It may be worse at night or when lying down.
  • Regurgitation of food with a sour taste.
  • Pain in the upper abdomen or chest.
  • A problem when swallowing (dysphagia).
  • A sensation of a lump in the throat.

Nighttime acid reflux may produce an ongoing cough, laryngitis, or asthma.

  • Is dexlansoprazole safe for long-term use?

    Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) is considered to be safe and effective for long-term use. There is however a small risk of developing serious complications with sustained use, including kidney damage. A healthcare provider should be consulted if any signs of side effects other than those listed on the drug box are noted.
  • What is the best time of day to take dexlansoprazole?

    Dexlansoprazole can be taken without regard to food, but its presence in the stomach can affect the amount of dexlansoprazole absorbed, which can decrease the acid-reducing effects of Kapidex. To limit this interaction, it is best to take dexlansoprazole on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes prior to a meal whenever possible
  • Do I have to take GERD medication forever?

    Some doctors regard GERD as a relapsing disease. Many patients need to continue taking GERD medicine even after symptoms have disappeared and the esophagus has healed. To prevent recurrence and further damage to the esophagus, people may have to stay on Kapidex for years
  • Is it OK to take Dexilant every day?

    Taking Dexilant long-term may cause the stomach to develop growths called fundic gland polyps, which are generally harmless and benign. Use of Dexilant for longer than three years can cause a vitamin B-12 deficiency.
  • What does delayed release mean?

    Delayed-release medications are designed to release their active ingredient some time after they are taken, which can help control where it's actually absorbed in the body. This is usually done to prevent the medication from being broken down too early or losing potential benefits.
