Study highlights drug-drug interaction risk from two commonly used drugs


This is v important, and raises the question as to whether other proton pump inhibitors have the same adverse effect when in combination with ceftriaxone. We should keep in mind that proton pump inhibitors are frequently used haphazardly without a real medical indication. Also, assessing that is crucial in the pediatric age group while proton pump inhibitors are used in plethora( often also unnecessarily) for a presumptive GE reflux, and frequently there is concomitant use of ceftriaxone for otitis media for instance-even outside hospital settings.
