Aciphex (rabeprazole) belongs to a class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors. It decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach. The stomach contains tiny pumps (called proton pumps) that produce acid. Aciphex works by binding to the proton pumps, stopping them from producing acid. This medication is used to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other conditions involving excessive stomach acid. It also promotes healing of erosive esophagitis (damage to your esophagus caused by stomach acid). Aciphex may also be given with an antibiotic to prevent gastric ulcer caused by infection.
