Aciphex side effect?

My pcp put me on Aciphex 20 mg for acid reflux. He said he could hear the acid in my esophagus.  Is that possible?
I have had fatigue for almost 2 years...after many tests..no cause found. Since starting the medication 5 nights ago, i have had even more.fatigue, lightheadedness and spaced out/drugged feeling...has anyone else felt this way?  I am calling in the morning to make an appt.with a gastroenterologist with hopes that they will order some tests.

Thanks!

What side effects can this medication cause?

Rabeprazole may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if these symptoms are severe or do not go away:

headache

nausea

vomiting

diarrhea

stomach pain

constipation

gas

sore throat

Some side effects can be serious. If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately:

blistering or peeling skin

rash

hives

swelling of the eyes, face, mouth, lips, tongue, or throat

difficulty breathing or swallowing

Rabeprazole may cause other side effects. Call your doctor if you have any unusual problems while you are taking this medication.

People who take proton pump inhibitors such as rabeprazole may be more likely to fracture their wrists, hips, or spine than people who do not take one of these medications. The risk is highest in people who take high doses of one of these medications or take them for one year or longer. The risk may also be higher in people who are 50 years of age or older. Talk to your doctor about the risk of taking rabeprazole.

If you experience a serious side effect, you or your doctor may send a report to the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program online [at http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch]
