Abstract Background: In Australia, the prescribing of proton pump inhibitors (Pills) and histamine type 2 receptor antagonists (H2RAs) for defined gastrointestinal disorders is approved for Subsidy by the universal Australian Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. These agents also may be used with NSAIDs, but this prescribing is not approved for subsidy. PPI prescribing increased in Australia between 1997 and 2006, and some authorities are concerned that this increase may be due to prescriptions outside the approved indications.
