Abstract

Acid-peptic disorders affect 60 % population during the course of a year. Approximately 40% of adults in the USA have complaints of heartburn every year. The prevalence rate of GERD in developed nations is tightly linked with age, with adults aged 60 to 70 being the most commonly affected. As proton pump inhibitors and H2 receptor antagonists are by far the most commonly used form of acid suppression, this survey study was planned to gather detailed information about these agents from practitioners who frequently prescribe these medications. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A total of 50 practitioners were included in the study; 25 from private set up and 25 from the tertiary care teaching rural hospital. The feedback questionnaire that contained various questions, related to the drugs used in acid peptic disorders, were distributed to find out the various indications for which consultants prescribed them, the frequency of use, choice of preparation, feedback on their use and any adverse effects that were noticed. Descriptive analysis was performed on all the variables to obtain the frequency and percentage followed by application chi-square test in order to find the significance and p< 0.05 were considered as significant. RESULTS: Most common indications for use antiulcer agents are gastroesophageal reflux diseases (76%) and peptic ulcer (22%). Proton pump inhibitors are preferred over H2 receptor antagonists. Parenteral preparations are used in the emergency. Ranitidine is administered intravenously more commonly than pantoprazole.
