Can I get rabeprazole without a prescription from my doctor?

Although there are several proton pump inhibitors that are available without a prescription, currently, rabeprazole is only available by prescription from your doctor. If you would prefer to use non-prescription medicines, this is something to discuss with your doctor -- two medicines that are similar to rabeprazole are called omeprazole (Prilosec) and lansoprazole (Prevacid) and are available without a prescription. However, if your doctor prescribed rabeprazole, you should take it as directed. Do not combine rabeprazole with over-the-counter proton pump inhibitors without talking with your doctor, and do not stop taking rabeprazole without first talking about this decision with him or her.
