Stop! Don't cleanse: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to your question.There is virtually no value to colon flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste" or for weight loss. There are few real health benefits, but sigificant unjustified risk. Don't use cleansers please unless prescribed.

See details: Zantac will not help diarrhea as it is indicated for upper GI issues. How you taper the dexilant depends on the dose you are taking currently.
