Proton-pump inhibitors are medications prescribed in order to reduce the body's production of gastric acid. They are most often recommended to patients suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), dyspepsia, Barrett's esophagus, peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and other such conditions. The results of using this type of medical treatment are meant to be long lasting, however, when complications occur, the effects can be devastating.
Proton-pump inhibitors are medications such as Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, Zegerid, Vimovo, etc. More than 15 million Americans use these drugs in spite of their link to kidney disease and other severe issues.
