Acid reflux, also known as heartburn, acid indigestion, or pyrosis, is a common condition that is characterized by a burning pain in the lower chest area, often after eating. Acid reflux happens when stomach acid flows up into the food pipe (esophagus).
Rabeprazole works by reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach. This is achieved with the proton pump inhibitors contained in Rabeprazole, which block the enzyme in the wall of the stomach that produces acid. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is typically diagnosed when acid reflux occurs more than twice a week.
Rabeprazole tablet 20mg contains the active ingredient rabeprazole sodium at a concentration of 20mg.
Rabeprazole also contains the following inactive ingredients: carnauba wax, crospovidone, diacetylated monoglycerides, ethylcellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hypromellose phthalate, magnesium stearate, mannitol, propylene glycol, sodium hydroxide, sodium stearyl fumarate, talc, and titanium dioxide. Iron oxide yellow is the coloring agent for the tablet coating. Iron oxide red is the ink pigment.
Please note: different generic versions of Rabeprazole may contain different inactive ingredients to those listed here.
For the treatment of acid reflux associated with GERD, take one tablet of Rabeprazole 20mg orally (by mouth) with a glass of water before a meal, usually first thing in the morning. You should take one tablet every day for usually up to 4 weeks.
If your doctor prescribes Rabeprazole twice a day, take one dose in the morning and one dose in the evening.
Swallow the tablet whole. Do not chew, crush, or split the drug as this may increase the risk of side effects.
