Yes, long term use of Aciraz can cause osteoporosis (thinning of bones). It decreases the calcium absorption leading to calcium deficiency and increases the risk of bone fractures of hip, wrist or spine. Inform your doctor if you have osteoporosis or if you are taking corticosteroids (these can increase the risk of osteoporosis) before starting your therapy. Take enough calcium and vitamin D to reduce the risk.
Aciraz can be taken with antacids like aluminum hydroxide, magnesium carbonate or sodium bicarbonate. Aciraz takes a few days to show its effect, so antacids can be taken during that time for relief of acidity and heartburn.

Domperidone increases gut motility and Rabeprazole decreases the acid production in the stomach. So, this combination is very effective in the treatment of reflux esophagitis associated with acidity, heartburn, intestinal and stomach ulcers.
