 3  Duodenal Ulcers / GERD Dizziness (Vertigo), irritability, confusion, slight headache I was taking Nexium before Aciphex, but had to stop due to high cost (insurance would not cover). After about two weeks on Aciphex, noticed side effects listed. Reflux came back more often when taking Aciphex than when I was on Nexium. Physican is taking me off Aciphex. I will now try Protonix.

 3  Acid-Reflux, Heartburn Dizzy, lightheaded, and disoriented. Pressure in chest, pounding in throat. Felt like I was having a panic attack, yet symptoms came on randomly and at times when I was very relaxed. The medication helped symptoms that Zantac did not - I'd been having gurgling in upper chest and lots of chest pressure and excessive stomach gas and burping. AciPhex solved those problems, but the new problems it brought were more uncomfortable and disturbing. I was beginning to fear I'd faint while driving or that I was having a heart attack. Went off the stuff for a week and symptoms disappeared. An hour and a half after I took it again, symptoms returned. Going off it for good. F 38 45 days

 5  Extreme heartburn None Heartburn used to keep me up all night. I slept in a chair many nights to try to avoid the heartburn. Aciphex is the only medication that stops the heartburn and I've tried many. I can't live without it. F 49 3 years

 5  GERD Slight Head ache during the first couple of days, until it gets in my system then it's smooth sailing. This is my miracle drug I have been taking medications for my GERD for 12 years and nothing has helped like this!!! I know that it is extremely expensive (THANK GOD FOR SAMPLES!!!) but with me it is well worth it. I used to feel like I was in the exercist when I would come flying out of the bed with acid shooting out of my mouth and nose and I had no control over it. But now that is all in the past!!! AMEN!

 4  GERD Minor/occaisional side effects (stomach cramping, mostly)... but one strange thing: I work out a lot... since taking Aciphex, I haven't been sore from my workouts - no matter the intensity, no soreness. Weird. I've been on Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid, and Protonix on and off for the past 4 years. So far, so good with Aciphex. F 36 2 months

 3  ulcer, gerd burping and feeling of stomach in throat, increased appetite, excessive gassiness. Seems to work quite well at relieving the heartburn, but the side effects were bothering me so much I tried going off the med for a few days, and by day 3 I was experiencing the most painful heartburn and severe acid reflux in my life, so I resumed the med.Will try to deal with the effects while looking into other options. F 28 6 weeks

 2  laryngopharyngeal reflux disease Severe vertigo/nausea. I had been on Prevacid, Nexium,& Protonix (2X/day)for 9 months:too many side effects - insomnia; severe abdominal cramps/constipation; no appetite;etc. I took Aciphex (20mg 2X/day) for 5 days. On the 6th day, I woke up with severe vertigo/nausea, which lasted for one week (I went back on Protonix for a short while, tapering off to nothing until I find out the ototoxicity of PPI's.)

 4  Acid Reflux/IBS Some cramping and gas.....has helped my acid reflux and chest pains. I have been on Prilosec, Propulsid, Zantac, Protonix, Prevacid, and now Aciphex for two and a half years. All of these medications had some kind of reaction. But Aciphex has seemed to be the only one to stop my intense heartburn and chest pains. I am reading that you shouldn't take it because it is causing major problems in people. Has anyone else had any major problems? Thanks. F 28 2.5 years
