Active Ingredient History
Dexlansoprazole (trade names Kapidex, Dexilant) is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) that is marketed by Takeda Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of erosive esophagitis and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. Dexlansoprazole is used to heal and maintain healing of erosive esophagitis and to treat heartburn associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It lasts longer than lansoprazole, to which it is chemically related, and needs to be taken less often. Dexlansoprazole is supplied for oral administration as a dual delayed-release formulation in capsules and orally disintegrating tablets. The capsules and tablets contain dexlansoprazole in a mixture of two types of enteric-coated granules with different pH-dependent dissolution profiles. The most significant adverse reactions (≥2%) reported in clinical trials were diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, upper respiratory tract infection, vomiting, and flatulence. NCATS
