However, it can occur after you take rabeprazole for 3 months or longer. Low magnesium levels may not cause any symptoms, but serious side effects can occur.

Conditions that cause the stomach to make too much acid. These include a rare condition called Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
Rabeprazole may be used as part of a combination therapy. This means you may need to take it with other medications. When rabeprazole is used to treat an infection caused by the bacterium H. pylori, it’s used in combination with two antibiotics. These are amoxicillin and clarithromycin.
