Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent of Participants Who Experience Each Treatment Emergent Adverse Event Experienced by ≥5% of Participants While Receiving Dexlansoprazole During the 4 Week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    A Treatment Emergent Adverse Event (TEAE) is defined as an Adverse Event (AE) that started or worsened on or after Study Day 1 (defined as first dose day), and no more than 30 days after the last dose of study drug.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The Percentage of Days With Neither Daytime Nor Nighttime Heartburn Over the 4 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Participants documented the presence or absence and the degree to which daytime and nighttime heartburn symptoms hurt daily in an electronic daily diary.
