Medical therapy aimed at prevention of gastroesophageal reflux or treatment of the resulting esophagitis has been modified considerably during the past few years. A number of new drugs or new uses for old drugs have been shown in controlled treatment trials to be effective adjuncts in the therapy of this common problem (1-4). The prospect of new forms of therapy for a common problem often raises the possibility for older effective forms of therapy to be forgotten or mislaid. This may create the potential for overuse or abuse of the newer, less well-proven therapies.
