Rabeprazole Sodium

Rabeprazole sodium (Aciphex®) is a drug used to treat erosive esophagitis, duodenal ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and other conditions related to the stomach, esophagus, and intestines. It comes in tablet form and can be taken with or without food. By reducing the amount of acid in your stomach, rabeprazole can make heartburn and other GERD symptoms go away, allow damage to the esophagus to heal, and give the stomach or intestines time to heal.
 
Though generally well tolerated, this drug is not the best choice for everyone. Before starting treatment with rabeprazole, tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, have liver disease, or have any allergies.
