Brief Answer:
Dexilant can change the absorption of other medicine such as Zolpidem.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Dexilent is a very effective medication to treat reflux. It is a proton pump inhibitor.
It works by lowering the level of acid in the stomach.

Dexilant can change the absorption of other medicines based on the effects that it has on stomach acid. If you can help me with more information about your symptoms I could help you better. Meanwhile, I can suggest you to consult your doctor about the dose of Zolpidem.

You can also consider other medication such as Restoril. It is a prescribed medication so you should consult your doctor before taking it.

Some other advice that I can give to you are:
- Eat smaller portions
- Avoiding fatty, spicy, or acidic foods
- Avoid caffeine
- Avoid smoking

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
