However, the response may vary from patient to patient and depend on the dose.
Q. How is rabeprazole useful in the treatment of H. pylori?
Rabeprazole is used along with antibiotics for the treatment of H.Pylori infection. It works by decreasing gastric acid volume and increasing pH of the stomach.
