In brief: Ppi dosing

The maximum doses of each ppi are equipotent in reducing acid.
Going higher than these doses impart no greater benefit and should not be exceeded. Prilosec/omeprazole: 20 BID. Prevacid/lansoprazole:30 BID. Nexium/esomeprazole:40 bid. Protonix/pantoprazole: 40 bid.Aciphex/rabeprazole:20 bid.Zegerid 40 daily. and Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) 60 daily. So to answer Dexilant (dexlansoprazole)60=omeprazole40,

In brief: Different meds

Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) (lansoprazole) 60mg is a dual-release lansoprazole, and is somewhat like taking lansoprazole 30mg twice daily.
Lansoprazole 30mg is considered to be an equivalent dose to omeprazole 20mg. Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) 60mg once daily therefore is roughly the equivalent of omeprazole 20mg twice daily. Nexium (esomeprazole), rabeprazole, pantoprazole also exist; some people respond to one more than another.
