PPI side effects: There are concerns that reducing stomach acidity may be contributing to clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea. There also may be a link between long-term use of ppis & osteoporosis. If you develop resistant diarrhea or are at risk for osteoporosis, consult your fp for further evaluation.
