Have acid reflux and hiatus hernia I have been prescribed rabeprazole 20mg, omeprazole 20mg and lansoprazole 30mg, which would you say was best?

All comparable. All of the PPI's (proton pump inhibitors) are very effective at reducing acid. Some keep the gastric pH <4 longer than others, but the bottom line, is which one works for you at the lowest dosage and the cheapest price. Check with your insurance company and find out which is their preferred drug.
