About RABICENT TABLET

RABICENT TABLET belongs to a group of antiulcer medicines called proton pump inhibitors used to treat duodenal ulcers, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (reflux of gastric contents into the oesophagus), heartburn, erosive oesophagitis (acid-related damage to the lining of the oesophagus), infections caused by Helicobacter pylori when given along with an antibiotic, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

RABICENT TABLET contains 'Rabeprazole' that works by blocking the action of the enzyme known as gastric proton pump which is responsible for the production of acid. This helps in reducing the amount of acid produced, heals the ulcers and prevents the formation of new ulcers.

You are advised to take RABICENT TABLET for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as headache, dizziness, diarrhoea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, flatulence (wind), weakness, and runny nose. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

Inform your doctor if you have a stomach tumour or liver disease. On long-term treatment, RABICENT TABLET may cause low magnesium levels, vitamin B12 levels and increase the risk of bone fractures. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. RABICENT TABLET may cause dizziness and sleepiness, so drive only if you are alert. RABICENT TABLET is not recommended for children as safety has not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with RABICENT TABLET as it could lead to increased drowsiness and can elevate the production of stomach acid.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Acidity: The stomach is usually protected from the acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets eroded, which leads to complications like acidity, GERD, heartburn, peptic ulcer, and Zollinger Ellison syndrome.

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): It is a condition that occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe and causes heartburn.

    Duodenal ulcer: It is a painful condition followed by the development of sores or ulcers in the duodenum or stomach lining (first part of the small intestine, i.e., the duodenum).

    Zollinger Ellison syndrome: It is a rare condition in which a gastrin-secreting tumour of the pancreas causes excessive acid production leading to peptic ulcers.
