    Unhappy Dexilant not as good as Nexium?

    Hello, I've been on nexium for over 2 years and it works generally well and the reflux symptoms have been under control. Recently my doctor suggested me switching to dexilant, saying its effects would last longer than nexium.

    Since one week ago I've been trying dexilant 60mg, however, the symptoms, heartburn and burning tongue, came back. I originally planned to take one pill of dexilant 60mg every 2-3 days (I used to take nexium 20mg every other day), but it did not work well. I had to take one 60mg pill per day, but the symptoms still don't go away.

    Anyone here has similar experience? Should I stay on dexilant for more days to see if it works, or should I switch back to nexium? Thanks.
