Just started dexilant

I just started Dexilant (60 mg) and I started to feel a burning when I pee. Is this normal? I have been taking 2 20 MG of Zegerid and I did not have this problem.

Re: Just started dexilant
In a study done this year, only 4 people out of 761 had painful urination. That doesn't mean that you are not one of that small minority, but maybe you have a urinary tract infection and need antibiotics.

I was fine the first 3 days on this and then I started to feel the pain last night. Also, I would think with this much PPI I should not have reflux, but today has been a disaster. I am going to give it one more day

Re: Just started dexilant
I was on Dexilant too and my doc told me it could take up to seven weeks for it to work excellently.
