Proton pump inhibitors (“PPIs”) rank among the top 10 prescribed classes of drugs, with an estimated 15 million Americans taking them. PPIs are commonly used to treat acid reflux, indigestion, and peptic ulcers. Although generally assumed to be safe, recent studies have shown that they have numerous, detrimental side effects, including increased risk for cardiovascular events, kidney disease, and dementia.
PPI users have been shown to have a significantly greater risk of heart attack and kidney disease than those on other antacid medication.
