When and How Do I Take It?

Some general considerations for when and how to take the medication include:
  • Rabeprazole comes in tablet form. It should be taken with or without food.
  • The tablets should not be split, chewed, or crushed. (For information about the sprinkle capsule form of rabeprazole that can be opened, please see Aciphex Sprinkle.)
  • It should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level of rabeprazole in your system.
  • For the medication to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed.

Dosing Information

The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be currently taking.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
