  • Product Description

    Common use
    Aciphex is an antiulcer medication which inhibits a proton pump (PPIs) and blocks the production of acid by the stomach. Biochemically it blocks the (H+,K+)-ATPase enzyme system hereby inhibiting the final stage of hydrochloric acid production. After peroral intake of Aciphex antisecretorial effect is reached during one hour and is maximal in 2-4 hours. This medication is used to treat ulcers in stomach, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease, to eradicate Helicobacter pylori in patients with ulcers in stomach or chronic gastritis.

    Dosage and directions

    Dosage should be administered by your doctor depending on your condition. Usually in patients with an acute duodenal ulcer and c it is recommended to take 1 tab (20 mg) in the morning one time a day during 4-6 weeks. When treating H. pylori infection, Aciphex may be needed for only a week. Follow all recommendations of your doctor and do not take this drug in larger amounts than it was prescribed to you. Tablets should be swallowed whole. Do not crush, split or chew them. Take Aciphex with or without meals with a big glass of water since food has little effect on its absorption.
