pneumonia
I had been taking Dexilant for about a month when I started to get a cough.  The cough has gotten progressively worse.  The doctor did a chest xray and ct scan but can't be sure what it is.  I took a week of Clindamycin and feel a little better. Could the dexilant have caused me to develop pneumonia which has gone untreated for 5 months?  I have not had a fever but chills on and off.  I lost my appetite. I became anemic.  What should be my next step?

Common side effects of Dexilant are listed as diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea, common cold, vomiting and gas.

I don't know if this drug has caused a cough in you, but I know that there were a lot of viruses over the winter that caused long-term cough.  Maybe you just got a late case of it (such as whooping cough).
