After years of taking NSAIDS for back pain (prior to my fusion surgery) and also for migraines my stomach has finally had enough. I have now been put on Pariet (alos known as Aciphex)to try and repair a stomach ulcer. This medicine contains the active ingredient rabeprazole sodium, which is a type of medicine known as a proton pump inhibitor. It acts in the stomach to decrease the production of stomach acid.
Has anyone here had any experience with Pariet? As usual, I am super cautious about taking any medication these days, due to the risks of side effects.
