About GERD Drugs

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the stomach and esophagus. It occurs when acidic stomach juices, or food and fluids flow back up into the food pipe (esophagus). The backwash irritates the lining of the esophagus and causes GERD. It affects all ages from infants to older adults. The symptoms of GERD include difficulty while swallowing (dysphagia), heartburn sensation, regurgitation or acid reflux, dry cough, sore throat, and chest pain.

GERD is believed to be caused by the overuse of certain medications, such as calcium channel blockers, nitrates and antihistamines. Unhealthy lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking, slouching, consuming caffeinated drinks, eating large meals, and sleeping immediately after eating are some other typical causes for the occurrence of GERD. Pharmaceutical agents that are used to prevent complications and reduce morbidity in patients with GERD include antacids, H2 receptor antagonists, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), and prokinetic agents.
