Systematic review: proton-pump inhibitor
failure in gastro-oesophageal reflux disease--where next?
Q I have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and take an over-the-counter H2 blocker to ease my heartburn--but would a proton-pump inhibitor
be more effective?
For the study, researchers at RTI International, University of Michigan, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill used a Markov model to compare the costs and outcomes of prescribing low-dose aspirin alone, aspirin plus a proton-pump inhibitor
, or no treatment for coronary heart prevention.
Several months earlier, his primary care physician had started him on a proton-pump inhibitor
Some falls could be attributed to dizziness caused by a proton-pump inhibitor
5%) had concomitant use of a proton-pump inhibitor
On April 29, 2005 GlaxoSmithKline announced that a drug-interaction trial of Lexiva (fosamprenavir) with Nexium (esomeprazole, a proton-pump inhibitor
, often used to reduce stomach acidity for relief of reflux, the unwanted flow of stomach acid into the esophagus), had found no reduction in the in the blood level of amprenavir.
Rather than clopidogrel, aspirin plus a proton-pump inhibitor
should be prescribed to prevent recurrent bleeding from ulcers in high-risk patients, according to results of a double-blind, randomized trial.

He also had had laryngopharyngeal reflux for several years, for which he had been treated with a proton-pump inhibitor
A new study has found that if Reyataz (atazanavir), whether taken with or without ritonavir, is used with Prilosec (omeprazole, a proton-pump inhibitor
used to reduce stomach acidity, for treating acid-reflux disease or other conditions), the blood level of atazanavir is reduced by three quarters or more, probably making it ineffective and leading to viral resistance.
