A member asked:

Are there any safer alternatives to proton pump inhibitors (ppi) for treating gerd / acid reflux? i'm concerned about the long term side effects

A doctor has provided 1 answer

PPIs. : All medications have the potential to cause side effects, which I understand is disconcerting. However, the PPIs are a very effective class of medication for GERD, so the benefit should be considered with respect to the potential for risk.
