What is Aciphex

Aciphex relieves acute pain and gradually restores the will to live, leaving the unpleasant sensations behind. Rabeprazole (the active ingredient) reduces the amount of acid produced by the stomach, helping to reduce heartburn and other symptoms associated with gastrointestinal diseases.

Indications for use of Aciphex

The medicine is used to treat the following diseases and conditions:

  • gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD);
  • gastric and duodenal ulcer;
  • Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (a rare disease in which tumours form in the stomach and intestines that produce excess acid).

Contraindications for use

Do not take the medicine if you are hypersensitive to rabeprazole or any other component of the medicine, if you have kidney or liver problems. The medicine is contraindicated if you are concomitantly taking medicines containing atazanavir or nelfinavir (used for the treatment of HIV infection). The medicine should not be taken during pregnancy and breast-feeding, as it may affect the development of the foetus. In any case, you should consult your doctor before starting treatment, to avoid taking other medicines at the same time.

Side effects

Aciphex may cause adverse reactions in the body, such as headache, nausea, diarrhoea, constipation, fatigue and increased sensitivity to sunlight. In addition, some people may develop an allergic reaction to the medicine, which manifests as a rash, itching, swelling of the throat or tongue, difficulty breathing and other symptoms. If you experience any side effects while using the medicine, be sure to inform your doctor.

Directions For Use And Dosage

The medicine is normally taken 20 mg once daily with meals. The medicine should be swallowed whole, without chewing or crushing, with the required amount of water. The duration of treatment and the individual dosage depend on the severity of the disease.
