Probably: Probably ok, although if you're taking cemetidine , rabeprazole might not help you much unless you have a stomach ulcer.

Yes, but...: ...You may be able to maximize your dose of Cimetidine alone so that rabeprazole can be discontinued. Talk this over with your prescribing physician, ; clarify with him/her the duration of treatment that's planned.
