The Deprescribing Guidelines for the Elderly project has developed an evidence-based guideline to support clinicians in safely reducing or stopping proton pump inhibitors, a class of drugs that reduce acid production in the stomach. The team has also developed a deprescribing algorithm to help clinicians decide when and how to reduce proton pump inhibitors safely and how to monitor effect. See the resources below.
