New study links proton pump inhibitors with dementia. but this is just one study. how much validity is there to this conclusion?

Enough to be alert: Excellent question for new findings on a commonly used medical class. Were you aware that men show increase in hip fractures as well? Sometimes it is only after a new drug has been used on many many people over time that we find new problems that did not show up in original tastings. The real question is why you are using it, and is there a safer alternative? Then you can determine relative risk
