Aciphex review by 37 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Heart Burn
Dosage & duration:   one caplet taken once a day for the period of 6 months
Other conditions:   None
Other drugs taken:   None
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   After taking Aciphex for 1 week, my heartburn symptoms went completely away.
Side effects:   None
Comments:   My heartburn is triggered by many foods, not just spicy ones, but the Aciphex keeps the burn away even when I do eat spicy food or drink red wine. My biggest issue is that it takes more than 2 0r 3 doses over the same amount of days to feel any relief, and as soon as you stop taking it - the burn is back. It's also pricy, even with insurance.

Aciphex review by care giver of 48 year old male patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   acid reflux
Dosage & duration:   once a day (dosage frequency: once a day) for the period of 6yrs
Other conditions:   stomach ulcers and pancreatitis evry 3 months
Other drugs taken:   phenergan for nausea during pancreatitis
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   My husband started taking Aciphex when it first came out because he could not take any of the others. He started getting better after few months and stopped taking it afew times because insurance would not approve it. He immediately became ill and ended up in the hospital. Now after 6 yrs my husband has no symptoms other than occasional acid reflux when eating anything with tomato sauce.
Side effects:   There were no side effects other than if he discontinued the medication he would become ill and end up in the hospital. Acipkex supposedly at the beginning was just a healing drug to be taken for a limited time. The only side effect would be not taking the medicine as prescribed.
Comments:   My husband tried all of the other acid reducers on the market, over the counter and prescriptions. Aciphex is the only medicine he can take and live a happy ,normal healthy lifestyle without becoming sick.My husband still takes the Aciphex, but if he had to can actually go for months without it.
