Can proton pump inhibitors give you a food allergy/intolerance?

Prabably not: Ppi may produce symptoms similar to food allergy. See this site for side effects of ppi http://www.Pdrhealth.Com/proton-pump-inhibitors/side-effects-and-safety-of-proton-pump-inhibitors.

No: Ppi's cannot cause a food allergy, but they are known to trigger stomach symptoms as a side effect. Talk to the doctor who prescribed them to determine if itneeds to be stopped or changed. Don't stop any medication without discussing it with your physician first.
