Wednesday, January 03, 2018 -- By Dr. Mercola Americans spend a whopping $13 billion a year on over-the-counter and prescription proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), which are the most popular anti-reflux medications on the market.1 Because they inhibit acid production, prescription PPI drugs like Nexium, Prevacid and Prilosec are used to treat acid reflux, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition affecting about 20 percent of the U.S. population.2 Once prescribed, your doctor may keep you on a PPI drug for years, despite label warnings suggesting they be used only for short periods.
