Dosing and administration Indications Adverse reactions Deprescribing Best practice recommendations Background Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) were first introduced in 1980s Represent major breakthrough in mgmt of acid-related disease Now among most widely prescribed drugs, second to only statins In 2013, over $8.4 billion spent in US and over $13 billion worldwide 810% of adults were prescribed a PPI in past 30 days 13% of adults use PPI at least twice weekly People over 60 years of age 3.5 times more likely to use PPIs

Available PPI formulations Omeprazole (Prilosec) (1988) Pantoprazole (Protonix) (1994) Lansoprazole (Prevacid) (1995) Rabeprazole (Aciphex) (1999) Esomeprazole (Nexium) (2001) Lanso/naprox (NepraPAC) (2003) Ome/Na bicarb (Zegerid) (2004) Dexlansoprazole (Dexilant) (2009) Eso/ibuprofen (Vimovo) (2010) Available PPI formulations

Top proton pump inhibitors based on U.S. revenue millions of U.S. dollars in 2013 Mechanism of action Gastric acid produced by gastric H+/K+ ATPase (proton pump) kills ingested microorganisms limits bacterial growth in stomach (other than H. pylori) prevents intestinal infections such as C. difficile

facilitates digestion of protein and absorption of iron, calcium, and B12 allows absorption of basic drugs including metoprolol and allopurinol Regulation of acid secretion relies on: Gastrin (stimulated by food) Acetylcholine (stimulated by vagus nerve) Histamine (stimulated by gastrin and acetylcholine) Mechanism of action Acid can also have caustic effects on the lining of the gastrointestinal mucosa causing symptoms and injury including esophagitis and ulcers Normal gastroduodenal mucosa protects itself from harmful effects of acid through various defensive and healing mechanisms including: Mucus

Prostaglandin Bicarbonate secretion When these mechanisms fail acid related injury can occur Medications can help to neutralize acid or suppress acid production Mechanism of action Acid-suppressing medications include: Antacids such as sodium bicarbonate, magnesium or aluminum hydroxide, calcium carbonate, and bismuth subsalicylate Histamine type 2 (H2) blockers Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) These medications

control various different upper GI symptoms including GERD and dyspepsia prevent ulcers from forming in setting of non-steroidals and h pylori infection allow healing of existing ulcers in the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum Mechanism of action Antacids generally work by simple neutralization of acid H2 blockers bind to parietal cell H2 receptors, blocking histamine released by ECL cells PPIs irreversibly bind to and block active proton pumps in the gastric oxyntic mucosa, inhibiting acid production from all pathways Results in profound reduction in basal and stimulated gastric acid output, maintaining intragastric pH at high levels Allows for consistent prevention and healing of esophagitis and peptic ulcer disease and more rapid control of symptoms

Mechanism of action Dosing and administration Most PPIs are encapsulated or enterically coated (EC) to protect the medication against degradation by gastric acid Opening capsule may leave granules vulnerable to degradation, premature activation in presence of acid, and decreased efficacy All EC PPIs can be administered via NG tubes, while omeprazole and lansoprazole are also effectively administered via G-tube For pts with J-tubes, only omeprazole has been found to be effective Pantoprazole, esomeprazole, and lansoprazole available as liquid/IV Dosing and administration

pH monitoring Kleiman and others retrospectively reviewed type of symptoms and duration of PPI for 100 pts who later underwent pH monitoring In a cost effectiveness study, they subtracted cost of unnecessary PPIs from cost of pH monitoring in pts with normal pH Cost model showed pH monitoring after 8-week PPI trial would have saved from $1966 to $7285 per patient over 10 yrs Authors concluded that early referral for pH monitoring saves $6600 per patient over 10 yrs Cutting down unnecessary PPI use not only helps decrease costs but may also decrease potential risks of long-term exposure Adverse reactions PPIs are generally well tolerated; acute reactions occur only 1-3%

Headaches, dizziness Abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting Flatulence, diarrhea Drug-drug interactions have been reported with certain PPIs Most PPIs are pregnancy category B (omeprazole is category C), but there are no recommendations for use in breast-feeding Over last 20 years, a large number of articles have been published regarding safety of long-term use, leading to several FDA notifications Potential long-term safety considerations AIN CKD

3/2/11: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of proton pump inhibitor drugs 2/8/12: Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea can be associated with stomach acid drugs known as proton pump inhibitors Interaction with clopidogrel Some data suggest decreased activation of clopidogrel in omeprazole users Both drugs share hepatic CYP450 and CYP2C19 metabolism 2012 nonrandomized subgroup analysis of PLATO trial Use of PPI was associated with higher rate of CV events in those taking either clopidogrel or ticagrelor 2015 meta-analysis of six observational studies evaluating composite outcome of death, MI, or CVA with various different PPIs:

pantoprazole (HR 1.38, 95% CI 1.12-1.70) lansoprazole (HR 1.29, 95% CI 1.09-1.52) esomeprazole (HR 1.27, 95% CI 1.02-1.58) omeprazole (HR 1.16, 95% CI 0.93-1.44) Interaction with clopidogrel Only large scale RCT comparing omeprazole to placebo in clopidogrel users (COGENT trial) published in NEJM in 2010 NO significant difference in CV events when two were combined (HR 0.99; 95% CI 0.68-1.44) Significant reduction in gastrointestinal events (HR 0.34; 95% CI 0.18-0.63) Subsequent systematic review of published data concluded that adverse effect of PPI use with clopidogrel cannot be substantiated

Risks and benefits of clopidogrel and concomitant PPI therapy need to be individualized based on indication for PPI use Prophylactic PPI should be considered for pts taking clopidogrel who have high risk of PUD (similar to daily ASA users) Fracture risk Long-term PPI use has been associated with risk of osteoporosis and decreased bone mineral density (BMD), with 35% risk of fractures Calcium serves an important role in bone health and formation as key component of hydroxyapatite, which is main element of bone PPI-induced fractures may occur because some dietary calcium absorption is dependent upon acidic environment in GI tract Hypochlorhydria reduces absorption of water insoluble calcium (eg. calcium carbonate), which can be overcome by consuming a meal

Absorption of water-soluble calcium salts (eg. calcium citrate) or calcium in dairy are not impacted by PPI-induced hypochlorhydria This reduction in calcium absorption can augment osteoclastic activity, increasing bone loss and further reducing BMD Fracture risk Some early studies with omeprazole showed that fractional absorption of calcium was reduced in postmenopausal women Large prospective cohort study from 2010 Arch Intern Med PPI associated with increased risk of vertebral (HR 1.47, 95% CI 1.18-1.82), wrist, and total fractures Subsequent 2011 analysis, concurrent use of PPIs and alendronate

associated with loss of protection against fracture (39 versus 19%) 2011 Am J Med meta-analyses of 11 case-control and cohort studies RR of hip, spine, and any-site fractures was 1.30, 1.56, and 1.16, with PPI use Risk was highest in long-term users (>1 year) of high-dose PPI therapy Fracture risk These studies did demonstrate association between long-term PPI use and risk of fractures but contained numerous confounders In one analysis from 2012, fracture risk in PPI users was confined to pts with at least one other risk factor: current or former smokers sedentary lifestyle use of certain medications (e.g., HCTZ, HRT, CS)

Targownik et al. also found in 2012 that pts using PPIs were older (66.3 vs. 60.9 years; P <.001) with higher BMI (28.3 vs. 26.9; P <.001) Fracture risk Another large prospective cohort study from 2012 showed chronic PPI use over 10 years not associated with accelerated BMD decline Other studies have similarly found no decrease in BMD in PPI users Although association between PPI use and bone fracture is plausible, causality not yet established In March 2011, FDA concluded that OTC PPI products do not warrant label changes to include warnings of fracture risk 2013 ACG guidelines on GERD state that existing osteoporosis is not a contraindication to PPI therapy, unless other risk factors exist

Low serum magnesium levels All PPIs are associated with decreased Mg absorption Mechanism for reduced absorption may be inhibition of transient receptor potential melastatin-6 (TRPM6) and TRPM7 channels Hypomagnesemia occurred in approximately 1% of pts taking PPIs according to the FDAs Adverse Reporting System Mean time is 5.5 yrs, but cases have been reported within 1 yr 2015 meta-analysis of 9 observational studies with 109,798 pts PPI use had RR 1.43 (95% CI, 1.08-1.88) for low Mg Low serum magnesium levels Symptoms include palpitations, tetany, convulsions, and weakness Clinical manifestations include neuromuscular excitability (tremor, tetany, seizures) and hypotension

Severe PPI-induced hypomagnesemia has also been associated with arrhythmias due to QT interval prolongation and torsades de pointes It is potentially fatal Pts who present with clinically significant hypomagnesemia may require Mg replacement and discontinuation of PPI therapy Hypomagnesemia generally resolves after discontinuation but recurs soon after PPI is re-challenged Low serum magnesium levels Hypomagnesemia is more common in older pts taking a PPI (mean age 64.4 yrs) and pts with renal failure Concurrent use of medications that decrease Mg also increases risk of significant hypomagnesemia Danziger et al. reported that pts who take a PPI with a diuretic have

nearly 55% greater risk of hypomagnesemia than with PPI alone FDA suggests obtaining Mg levels prior to initiation of therapy and periodically thereafter although AGA advises against routine testing Association with C. difficile PPI use has also been associated with increased risk of initial and recurrent C. difficile infection (CDI) Gastric acid is a defense mechanism against enteric bacteria Increased gastric pH may allow colonization of opportunistic microbes Risk of CDI appears to be greater with PPIs as compared to H2 receptor antagonists and other antacids Association with C. difficile 2005 retrospective study

Pts taking PPIs had HR of 2.9 (95% CI, 2.4-3.4) for developing C. difficile 75% of pts with reported cases of C. difficile were over age 65 Pts who received PPI during treatment of C. difficile were 42% (95% CI, 1.111.82) more likely to have recurrent infection after finishing therapy 2012 meta-analysis of 29 studies of pts with CDI PPIs increased risk of CDI (pooled OR = 2.15; 95% CI 1.81 2.55) 2017 meta-analysis of 50 observational studies Also noted that PPI use increased risk of CDI (RR 1.3; 95% CI 1.1-14) Association with C. difficile In a 2010 study Linsky et al. determined whether patients with recurrent CDI received a PPI within 14 days of initial infection HR for pts on PPIs during treatment was 1.42 (95% CI 1.11-1.82)

For pts over age 80, HR increased to 1.86 (95% CI 1.15-3.01) 2017 meta-analysis of 16 studies that included 1525 pts Acid therapy had OR 1.5 (95% CI 1.2-1.9) for recurrent infection In adjusted analysis from 9 studies, PPI use was increased even after controlling for age and other conditions (OR 1.4; 95% CI, 1.1-1.8) 2013 ACG guidelines on GERD recommend use of PPIs with caution in pts with a risk of C difficile infections (CDI) Latest study Safety of Proton Pump Inhibitors Based on a Large, Multi-year, Randomized Trial of Patients Receiving Rivaroxaban or Aspirin Moayyedi, et al.

Keep calm and carry on There is currently inadequate evidence to establish causal relationships between PPI therapy and proposed associations Safety reviews to date assess evidence as "low" or "very low quality since data only demonstrates modest association and not causality Most reports are retrospective case control studies (cross-sectional) limited by channeling bias and confounding factors Only available RCTs have shown no risk of MI, PNA, or GI malignancy, and no interaction with clopidogrel, with slight inc enteric infx When used appropriately, benefits of PPIs outweigh risks, but when used inappropriately, even modest risks become important Deprescribing If a patient does not have a definite indication for long-term PPI

therapy, what strategies can we use to take them off of them? Options include: Stepping down to a lower dose or intermittent/on-demand treatment regimen Discontinuing PPIs outright, either suddenly or gradually Substituting PPI with less potent form of acid inhibition (ie. H2 blocker) Step-down regimens Initial goal should be to take patients off high dose PPI therapy if there is no clear indication Inadomi et al. prospectively demonstrated that 80% of pts could be stepped down to standard dosing without recurrent symptoms Pts already on low dose PPI may be harder to wean off Theoretical risk of rebound acid hypersecretion with sudden

discontinuation resulting in symptom recurrence Phenomenon was seen in studies by Reimer et al. and Niklasson et al. Total discontinuation of PPIs Studies by Boghossian et al. and Hansen et al. also suggest loss of symptom control with intermittent dosing or switching to H2 blocker For these patients, another option is to taper their PPI gradually, initially decreasing use to every 2 or 3 days over several weeks Inadomi et al. found that 60% of PPI users discontinued over 2 wks were asymptomatic on no or OTC antacids over the following yr Deprescribing Barbara Farrell et al. from University of Ottawa published an evidence-based guideline in Canadian Family Physician in 2017

For adults older than 18 yrs with upper GI symptoms who received PPIs for minimum of 4 weeks and experienced symptom resolution Clinicians should either reduce the daily dose of PPI or stop the drug and switch patient to on-demand PPI use "strong evidence" Clinicians may consider stepping down to histamine-2 receptor antagonist therapy "weak evidence" Deprescribing AGA Best Practices for Long-Term PPI use Patients with GERD and acid-related complications should take PPI for short-term healing, maintenance, and long-term symptom control Patients with uncomplicated GERD who respond to short-term PPIs

should subsequently attempt to stop or reduce them Patients with Barretts esophagus and symptomatic GERD should take a long-term PPI Asymptomatic patients with Barretts esophagus should consider a long-term PPI Patients at high risk for ulcer-related bleeding from NSAIDs should take a PPI if they continue to take NSAIDs AGA Best Practices for Long-Term PPI use Specific PPI formulations should not be selected based on risks Dose of long-term PPIs should be periodically reevaluated so that lowest effective dose can be prescribed to manage the condition Patients who cannot reduce PPIs should consider ambulatory

pH/impedance monitoring before committing to lifelong PPIs Long-term PPI users should not routinely: screen or monitor bone mineral density, serum creatinine, magnesium, or B12 raise their intake of calcium, B12, or magnesium beyond Recommended Dietary Allowance use probiotics to prevent infection Final thoughts After what duration of PPI therapy are patients at risk for complications? Are there specific populations at higher risk for these complications? Do certain PPI formulations carry higher risk of complications than others?

Summary PPIs are highly efficacious acid-suppressing medications that block all three acid-producing pathways PPIs work best on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes before a meal, and require at least 5-7 days to achieve a steady state PPIs should be prescribed only when clinically appropriate, at lowest effective dose for proven indication, for recommended treatment duration Avoid chronic therapy after a negative work-up, and avoid dose escalation in people unresponsive to initial empiric therapy When long term use is needed, use only appropriate maintenance dose and consider on-demand PPIs or drug holidays Any questions?
