What Is AcipHex?
AcipHex prescription medication contains the active ingredient rabeprazole and is a medication used for treating different types of GERD. AcipHex is also combined with the medications amoxicillin and clarithromycin (Biaxin) as part of therapy for H. pylori infections to reduce duodenal ulcer recurrence. AcipHex, like dexlansoprazole (Dexilant), esomeprazole (Nexium), omeprazole (Prilosec) and pantoprazole (Protonix), belongs to a class of medications known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). As a PPI medication, AcipHex medication interferes with hydrogen and potassium ion movement across special cells in the stomach known as parietal cells. Ultimately, AcipHex tablets may help reduce gastric acid acidity and concentrations.
