The risk of acute pancreatitis associated with acid-suppressing drugs.
Br.J Clin Pharmacol, 49, 473-478.
It has been observed that there is an increased risk of acute pancreatitis with the use of acid-suppressing drugs. A review of patients using Ranitidine, Cimetidine and Omeprazole did not reveal any such association. The results of the study do not support any association between acid-suppressing drugs and an increase in the use of the antacids.
