PPI = Proton Pump Inhibitor
These are generally prescribed along with two types of Antibiotic for the treatment of H.Pylori. You are then told to continue with them for a few weeks after treatment.
They are to help with Acid Reflux and the other symptoms you are experiencing.
I was told to take mine for 4-6 wks.
I was prescribed NEXIUM and it is a prescription drug.
