GERD Medications

Proton Pump Inhibitor decrease HCl acid secretion by inhibiting the proton pump responsible for the secretion of H and decrease irritation of the esophageal and gastric mucosa
Histamine (H2)-Receptor Blockers Blocks the action of histamine on the H2 receptors to decrease HCl acid secretion, decrease conversion of pepsinogen to pepsin, and irritation of the esophageal and gastric mucosa
Prokinetic Agents Blocks effect of dopamine, increases gastric mobility and emptying, and reduces reflux
Antiulcer, Protectants Acts to form a protective layer and serves as a barrier against acid, bile salts, and enzymes in the stomach
Cholinergic Increases LES pressure, improves esophageal emptying, and increases gastric emptying
Antacids, Acid Neutralizers Neutralizes HCl acid and is taken 1-3 hours after meals and at bedtime
Prostaglandin (Synthetic) Protects lining of the stomach, increases production of gastric mucus and mucosal secretion of bicarbonate, and decreases HCl acid secretion
