First we get good news on PPI safety and bone density then today in the Daily Mail there is an article warning that PPIs could raise the risk of a Heart Attack .While reading this article I felt the research seemed a bit flawed and the UK Medicines Watchdog said the study did not prove that PPIs were to blame.
I had my Oesophagectomy 9 years ago and a few days ago I discussed my PPI medication with my surgeon before I read about this article
He assured me that this medication is very safe and very well tolerated and as been prescribed for nearly 30 years. Some of his own patients have been on it for over 20 years without any problems. I personally will continue to take this drug as I feel its does me more good than harm.
