Abstract:  In the pediatric patient, histamine2-receptor antagonists and/or proton pump inhibitors are recommended for effective therapy of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Proton pump inhibitors, a group of drugs whose main action is a pronounced and long-lasting reduction of gastric acid production, are more cost effective than histamine2-receptor antagonists because of long-term and enhanced treatment outcome. The compounding of proton pump inhibitors is an exacting procedure. Compounding pharmacists have the potential to provide optimal pharmacologic treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease to a young population that requires special attention.
