PPI use: Ppis can be used on an "as needed" medication and stopping them quickly will not result in any serious side-effects, first, start managing reflux by changing any life-style factors that may be causing reflux in the first place, such as caffeine and alcohol use, and avoid late meals close to bedtime.
