GORD quality standards

NICE has published nine quality standards covering GORD in children and young people. Among its findings NICE says “there is no evidence” that acid-suppressing drugs, including PPIs or H2 receptor antagonists, reduce regurgitation in infants and children.

It concludes that “unnecessary use should be avoided” and they should not be prescribed “if visible regurgitation is an isolated symptom.”
