Two weeks into taking this, I developed an extreme yeast infection along with awful cramping of my feet. I stopped for a week and then my doctor wanted me to try again. Well, after two pills, the yeast infection is back and I feel like crap.

Comment:
At first thought it worked great but started sweating even with little exertion and after several weeks experienced butt and leg cramps, nerves jumping in legs and severe weakness in legs. Within day of stopping Dexilant sweating disappeared, cramps diminished and leg pain less day by day.
