Rabeprazole slows down the production of stomach acid thus relieving symptoms.

Your doctor may have prescribed Rabeprazole for other reasons other than those listed; therefore it is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed.
Generic Aciphex vs Brand Aciphex
There are very slight differences between brand and generic Aciphex; both medications contain the medical ingredient Rabeprazole Sodium. Rabeprazole is marketed by Janssen-Ortho as Aciphex in the USA only; Aciphex is known as Pariet in other countries around the world. Your order of Aciphex may have an alternate name depending on its country of origin; an alternate name does not make the medication a generic. Generic Aciphex or Rabeprazole is manufactured outside of a Janssen-Ortho facility; this is the biggest difference between Aciphex and Rabeprazole. Generic Rabeprazole and Aciphex are identical in dose, strength, safety, efficacy, chemical makeup and therapeutic use.
