What Is A Proton Pump Inhibitor?

Treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)—a condition in which stomach acid rises back up into the esophagus—is often a case-by-case process in which your doctor prescribes different types of treatments depending on the severity of your case. Your doctor may start with suggestions for lifestyle changes or over-the-counter medications, and if those don’t alleviate the symptoms of your GERD, your doctor may then suggest a medication called a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). Below we’ll go over the relation of PPIs and GERD, and what you need to know when it comes to your GERD treatment.
