OBJECTIVE: Acid-suppressant prescriptions for children have increased over past decades, despite guideline recommendations to prescribe prudently. Acid suppressants are often ineffective and may lead to side effects. We aimed to reduce inappropriate acid-suppressant prescriptions for gastroesophageal reflux in a tertiary care setting through active implementation of national guideline recommendations and to evaluate intervention effect.
