Generic Isn’t Always Better
Aciphex and Aciphex generic (Raberprazole sodium) are sometimes used as a prescription drug treatment for ulcers and erosion of the esophagus caused by acid reflux and GERDs disease (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Aciphex generic medication is normally prescribed in a 20mg dose and taken for 4-8 weeks. It is used to treat symptoms stemming from the over production of stomach acid and the reflux of stomach contents. However even if Aciphex generic is recommended by your doctor, you need to be aware of all the possible complications and side effects that may occur.
Besides the embarrassing, irritating and outright deadly potential side effects of Aciphex generic, there are other dangers as well. You must be especially careful not to ‘double up’ in the case of a missed dose. Aciphex generic can be responsible for allergic reactions and dangerous interactions with other drugs. It can also make other drugs you may be taking ineffective.
Aciphex side effects include:
- Sore throat
- Abdominal pain
- Serious skin rashes
- Jaundice (yellowing of the skin)
- Sudden death
- Low white blood cells
- Low blood platelets
- Life-threatening allergic reactions
If this list of side effects isn’t enough to make you question whether your should take Aciphex generic, consider the cost as well as continued trips to the doctor and pharmacy. Another big consideration is the fact that Aciphex generic only provides temporary relief – it doesn’t treat the cause of acid reflux and GERDs disease.
Unless you attack and treat the underlying issues you will likely find yourself right back at square one again in a few months. If you are thinking other similar drugs may be better, unfortunately you will be dissapointed to find they have just as serious and lengthy lists as the side effects of Aciphex generic.
This does not mean you should succumb to taking Aciphex generic and put yourself at risk. Natural health remedies are proven effective to successfully treat the cause of acid reflux and GERD. The basis of any plan to reduce stomach acid and reflux should include eliminating bad habits such as consuming tobacco products, drinking alcohol and bending over or laying down after meals. Regular exercise will promote proper digestion and increase metabolism, minimizing chances of reflux problems. Diet also plays a big role.
