Healthy Living: Acid Reflux Drugs & Memory Problems
Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy may sometimes experience acid reflux, a burning sensation that starts in the stomach and moves up into the chest and esophagus.
Courtney Doyle explains in Healthy Living.
A study published earlier this year looking at acid reflux drugs in the general population suggests an association between chronic use of PPIs and a higher risk of dementia in both men and women over the age of 75.
Chronic use is described as at least one three-month prescription in an 18-month period.
