Aciphex Sprinkle Medication Information
Children ages 1 to 11 years old who have symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) may receive treatment with a medication called Aciphex® SprinkleTM (rabeprazole sprinkle). Because this product is not suitable for everyone, it's important to review the safety information with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other health issues you may have, such as liver disease, low blood magnesium levels, or any allergies.
Aciphex Sprinkle capsules are opened and the contents are sprinkled onto soft food or into a liquid. It is taken once a day on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before a meal. Although most people tolerate this medicine well, side effects are possible and may include headaches, diarrhea, and stomach pain.
