Rabeprazole (generic AcipHex) 

Rabeprazole (also known as AcipHex, manufactured by Eisai Inc) is a protein pump inhibitor (PPI), available as either an enteric-coated tablet or delayed-release capsule prescribed to patients who suffer from conditions caused by an excess of stomach acid.

It is often prescribed by doctors to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), duodenal and gastric ulcers, erosive esophagitis, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Rabeprazole is combined with antibiotics (like clarithromycin and amoxicillin) to treat stomach ulcers caused by H. pylori bacteria.

Rabeprazole is not for immediate relief of heartburn symptoms.
