Overutilization of proton pump inhibitors (PPI) is obvious despite available recommendations, with clinical and economical issues. This overuse is due to abusive stress ulcer prophylaxis and to automatic represcription, particularly during transitions from intensive care unit to other inhospital units and at hospital discharge. Withdrawal symptoms may contribute to the difficulty of PPI interruption. It is mandatory to limit initiation of PPI treatment outside of appropriate indications and to regularly reassess the need of this treatment.
