Pathological Hypersecretory Conditions
Aciphex has been approved for long-term treatment for people who produce too much stomach acid (known as pathological hypersecretory conditions). The most common of these conditions is Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
Aciphex Uses in Children
Aciphex has been approved to treat GERD in children age 12 and older. It is not approved for use in younger children.
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend a drug for something other than the conditions for which it is approved to treat. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, there are no known off-label uses for Aciphex.
