Hi! To clarify your question, you want to know what interactions there are between Aciphex and Rifampin?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
this is the question that I have for you
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 2 months ago.

Thank you for clarifying.

The only interaction between these two medicines is that Rifampin can reduce the levels of Aciphex in your body. The outcome would be Aciphex being less effective.

Do you have any further concerns?

Hi! How is everything going with the Rifampin and Aciphex? I haven't heard back from you since my last reply:)
