 2  Acid reflux Sore and aching joints. Swollen hands and fingers. Buzzing feeling in feet. Worked fine for acid reflux F 62 4 days
 3  silent reflux LPR This worked fairly quickly to lessen the burning in my stomach and throat, and it decreased the burping due to reflux. However, it caused daily headaches after the first week of taking it. On day #11, I had a massive headache all evening, even though I drank lots of water (as I'd never suffered from headaches previously). As a result, I had to stop taking this drug. Surgery may be the next step... F 55 10 days

 1  heartburn Skipped periods; constipation; insomnia; heart flutter; BURNING SKIN; rash; swollen feet & ankles. I was on Omeprazole 10 MG x 2 for 5 days, when that didn't help the heartburn my doctor doubled it to 20 MG x 2 for 2 weeks. That caused my skin to burn so he switched me to Rabeprazole 20 MG x 2 which I was on for 3 weeks. During this time my skin burning was SEVERE. Extremely sensitive soles of feet, top of feet, toes, up my ankles; burning pain; sort of felt itchy and hyper-sensitive. Palms as well. On my own I started reducing the Rabeprazole. I went down to 10 MG x 1 in the morning and 20 MG x 1 in the evening for 11 days. After that I went down to 10 MG x 2 for 2 weeks. After that I went down to 10 MG x 1 for 3 1/2 weeks and then quit. My insomnia and heart flutter went away when I quit. My period has NOT returned (I am only 34 and haven't been on any contraceptive for years and have only ever once skipped a period which was due to a surgery). My BURNING SKIN is extremely bad, my feet and ankles are swollen, and I have a rash wherever it burns (feet and lower legs are worse but skin is sensitive everywhere). Rabeprazole helped my heartburn while I was on it but the side effects are not worth it. I still have heartburn, it has worsened, and I haven't been able to speak for weeks due to the pain in my throat, I am scared of getting Barrett's or cancer, but I am not willing to ever take another "prazole" drug. Note: I am also on valproic acid/divalproex sodium. F 34 3 months
20 MG 2X D
 1  Acid reflux Chest pains, chest tightness, lump in throat, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, coughing, anxiety attacks and nervousness. Side-effects did not start until 2 weeks after taking the medication. Symptoms began slowly and then significantly increased in severity as the days passed. Stopped taking the medication 2 days ago and side-effects diminished. Hopefully, they will be completely gone soon. F 36 4 weeks
 1  Acid Reflux Tremendous indigestion. Had to stop taking it. This didn't work as well (and had more side effects) than the brand name of Aciphex. The generic brand I took was made my Mylan. Stopping this resolved the problem. M 53 2 days
20 mg. 1X D

RABEPRAZOLE SODIUM  (RABEPRAZOLE SODIUM):  Rabeprazole is used to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems (such as acid reflux, ulcers). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough. This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus, helps prevent ulcers, and may help prevent cancer of the esophagus. Rabeprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
