Aciphex is used for treating heartburn or irritation with the esophagus due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It may be employed for short-term management of ulcers of the small intestine. It might be in combination with certain antibiotics to take care of ulcers from the small intestine and assist in preventing them from ever coming back. It could be used to treat issues that cause one's body to make a lot of stomach acid (eg, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome). Aciphex is often a proton pump inhibitor. It works by decreasing the amount of acid stated in the stomach.
