Antacid Drugs - Linked To Dementia

Antacid Drugs - Linked To Dementia

It appears that what we have considered a pretty much friendly drug may be linked to dementia.
Studies in Germany have not been too conclusive as they did not take other factors into account.
However, there seems to be a link because taking these antacid remedies can cause vitamin B12 deficiency.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to irreversible side effects and dementia could be one.
It mainly concerns the drugs known as protein pump inhibitors (PPIs).
You don't need a prescription for some.
Esomeprazole, lansoprazole and omeprazole are just some of the PPI's that millions of people use regularly.
So, next time you have heartburn have a good think about this :lol:

I bet the people who are taking these drugs are worried now :lol:

Okay, I understand that PPI's are doing the damage over long term.
But if we now know that it is the vitamin B12 deficiency that causes the problem, why can't the drug user not supplement their diets with the said vitamin?

Everyone I know takes some sort of indigestion tablets or drugs.
When I pointed this out they just dismiss it :poke:

I remember Milk of Magnesia but I found that they banned it in the EU for having too much sulphate in it :o
I used to take my mothers when I had an upset stomach :cheers:
