FAQs

Q. Does Rabifast cause bone problems?

Yes, long term use of Rabifast can cause thinning of bones, which is called osteoporosis. Rabifast decreases the calcium absorption leading to calcium deficiency, and increases the risk of bone fractures of hip, wrist or spine.

Q. How is Rabifast useful in the treatment of H. pylori infection?

Rabifast is used along with antibiotics for the treatment of H.Pylori infection. It works by decreasing stomach acid volume and decreasing breakdown and washout of antibiotics leading to an increased antibiotic concentration and tissue penetration. It also helps in the symptomatic relief by decreasing associated acidity, reflux, and heartburn.
