Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are one of the most commonly prescribed classes of medications and are bought by the public over the counter very frequently. Proton pump inhibitors were introduced in 1980’s and they have demonstrated gastric acid suppression superior to that of previous block buster drug histamine H2-receptor blockers. The first proton pump inhibitor was Omeprazole, and later Lansoprazole and Rabeprazole were introduced. Esomeprazole and Dexlansaprazole came in to the market in the last decade as purified Isomers. Proton pump inhibitors have enabled improved treatment of various acid-peptic disorders, including GERD, peptic ulcer disease, and NSAID drug-induced gastropathy. In the first two decades, proton pump inhibitors were thought to have minimal side effects and few significant drug interactions, and they were generally considered safe for long-term treatment. However, the landscape has changed lately and current knowledge of the proton pump inhibitors will be discussed.
