Proton Pump Inhibitors ( PPI) Gastric protection prescribing guide

does not replace clinical judgment which is assessed on a case by case basis.
As PPIs have become widely used, evidence has started to emerge regarding their long-term safety and
potential for adverse effects. Clinicians when considering prescribing long-term PPIs should consider if the
risks (see below) outweigh the benefits.
