More information about Rabeprazole
Rabeprazole is a medication that reduces the amount of acid produced in your stomach. It is used as an effective treatment for acid reflux, otherwise known as gastro-oesophagus reflux disease (GORD), and related conditions.
The symptoms of acid reflux can also be combated with Rabeprazole, including heartburn, indigestion and unpleasant tastes and sensations in the throat and mouth.
Rabeprazole belongs to a class of medications called ‘proton-pump inhibitors’. As their name suggests, these drugs stop proton-pumps from doing their job. Proton-pumps are sections of stomach cell membranes that control the production of acid.
It is normal for your stomach to produce acid, to aid with digestion. But too much can cause health issues. By inhibiting proton-pumps, Rabeprazole moderates how much acid can build up. With less acid, you will suffer less from symptoms such as heartburn, and there will be more opportunity for your stomach and intestine to recover from damage and infection.
You should always take medication as advised by your doctor and in the patient leaflet.
Rabeprazole will be prescribed as one of two doses: 10mg or 20mg. Your doctor will decide which of these is most suitable for you, depending on your condition and medical history.
A course will generally last 4-8 weeks, again depending on the condition and your symptoms.
It is possible to take this treatment on a long-term basis, assuming you are not suffering from oesophagitis (inflammation of the oesophagus).
Full instructions will be in your patient leaflet. However, a summary is below:
