Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are extensively recommended to cure several gastrointestinal diseases due to excessive acid creation. PPIs are widely observed as safe and efficient, among the most usually consumed drugs worldwide today; however, a series of observational investigations have reported a relationship between administration of PPIs and some side effects.
