FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A.Cells in the lining of the stomach contain proton pumps that produce the acid your body uses during digestion. Heartburn can be caused when this stomach acid flows up into the esophagus. Rabeloc protects you from frequent heartburn by turning your acid pumps from on to off, reducing the amount of acid that rises into your esophagus and alleviating heartburn.

A.Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are a group of medications that stop heartburn at the source by turning off many of the pumps that produce acid. Rabeloc belongs to this group of medications.

A.H2 Receptor blockers treat heartburn by obstructing one of the signals that tell your body to produce acid. However, if you use H2 Receptor blockers for more than a few days in a row, they can become less effective at treating heartburn. PPIs (proton pump inhibitors), like Rabeloc, treat frequent heartburn by blocking the production of acid.

A.Rabeloc works differently from other OTC medications for heartburn such as antacids and histamine blockers. Rabeloc is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), which stops acid production at the source-by blocking the pumps that release acid into the stomach. By doing so, they provide longer lasting relief of frequent heartburn when taken as directed. However, since they may take 1 to 4 days to reach full effect, they are not intended for immediate relief of symptoms.
Antacids relieve heartburn by neutralizing gastric acids. Histamine blockers block one of the signals that tell the stomach to produce acid and are used to prevent and relieve heartburn associated with acid indigestion and sour stomach. Histamine blockers provide longer symptomatic relief than antacids and act faster than proton pump inhibitors.
