The prevalence of inadequate prescribing of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) is in the range of 25-70%, which is certainly a significant problem when viewed from the perspective of rational pharmacotherapy/polypragmasia, pharmacoeconomics, but also pharmacovigilance. Continuous education, knowledge of clinical guidelines, better and clearer communication (direct and through medical records) between hospital specialists, family physicians and the patient himself, as well as regular reevaluation of the therapeutic need are of immense importance because they collectively result in prescribing the drug in the correct indication, through an adequate period and in the required dose. Therefore, the aim of this short review is to present justified indications for prescribing PPIs, discuss the most common misconceptions and dilemmas in clinical practice, evaluate the potential risks of their inadequate and long-term use, and lay the foundation for rational pharmacotherapy principles.
