Rabeprazole No Prescription
Rabeprazole begins reducing acid within an hour of administration.
Rabeprazole blocks acid production in the stomach.
Rabeprazole is classified as a "proton pump inhibitor."
Rabeprazole is prescribed for the short-term (4 to 8 weeks) treatment of sores and inflammation in the upper digestive canal (esophagus).
Rabeprazole is 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.
Rabeprazole is specially formulated to reduce the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
Rabeprazole works by blocking a specific enzyme essential to the production of stomach acid.
Because GERD can be chronic, your doctor may continue to prescribe Rabeprazole to prevent a relapse after your initial course of treatment and to relieve symptoms of GERD such as heartburn.
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.
Rabeprazole is prescribed to treat conditions, which include:
- gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd or heartburn);
- other conditions involving excessive stomach acid production;
