This descriptive analytic study collected data prospectively from prescriptions and patient medical records and through an interview with valid and reliable questionnaire. The data were collected from February to April 2016 by total sampling method. Causality analysis of gastrointestinal side effects was done by using Naranjo Algorithm while Chi-square and Fisher absolute test were used to see the association between gastrointestinal side effect and gender, age, PPI’s dose, and duration of administration of PPI.
