Aciphex Overview

Rabeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that suppresses gastric acid production in the stomach. It has several medical uses: the management of conditions that involve excess gastric acid production (e.g. Zollinger–Ellison syndrome), conditions that are worsened by gastric acid (e.g. ulcerations of the gastrointestinal tract), and conditions involving prolonged exposure to gastric acid (e.g. symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux disease). Rabeprazole's adverse effects tend to be mild but ca...

I Am 64yrs Young Do Not Have Any Type Of Insurance my x doctor prescribed Aciphex. It is $247.00 for 30 pills. I need help

I was praying that whoever makes the drug Aciphex would be so kind as to help me out with a coupon or discount or even a months sample. I took this drug for control of my Gerd several years ago when I was insured. It really did the job. I really need it. Thank you! ## Have your doctor write for a generic of another kind of protron inhibitor. They all work pretty much the same and you can save a ton. Or call the company who makes them and ask if they have a drug program to give you a discount on their drug. Most drug companies will help you out somehow. Good luck I live with it too and its horrible. ## Thank you Donna for your reply.

is it safe to take aciphex with dexilant

I have been on Aciphex which was a miracle drug for me for 10 years. One pill daily controlled my GERD completely and I was able to eat normally and enjoy my life. For some reason I don't understand, I had a horrible breakthrough of GERD last Saturday night which felt like someone poured battery acid down my throat. It woke me at 2 AM and I was scared because I never had that type of reflux before. I had an endoscopy two years ago that was pretty normal. Since this happened on a weekend, I just started taking my Aciphex twice a day, once in am and once in pm and it seemed to help somewhat...not perfect, but better than it was. I finally got through to my GI doc on Tuesday and he switched me to Dexilant, 60mg once a day and 300mg generic Zantac at night. This is my fourth day and thi...

How Long Does It Take For Aciphex To Leave Your System

I have taken aciphex for a month now and have had a total body itch every since i start taking it. I was wondering how long it took to get out of your system after stopping it ## If you continued taking it for a month, in spite of the itch, then it may take a few weeks to completely process out of your body and for such a reaction to finally stop. Learn more Aciphex details here. Has the itching improved any? Did you try any antihistamines to help?

AcipHex blocks acid production in the stomach. It is prescribed for the short-term (4 to 8 weeks) treatment of sores and inflammation in the upper digestive canal (esophagus). This condition, known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is caused by the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus over a prolonged period of time. Because GERD can be chronic, your doctor may continue to prescribe AcipHex to prevent a relapse after your initial course of treatment and to relieve symptoms of GERD such as heartburn. AcipHex can also be prescribed for the short-term (up to 4 weeks) treatment of duodenal ulcers (ulcers that form just outside the stomach at the top of the small intestine), and for Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, a disease which causes the stomach to produce too much acid. The d...
