ANH-USA is submitting a Citizens Petition to the FDA concerning the increased risk of pneumonia that is associated with proton pump inhibitor (PPI) medications for acid reflux. This effect has been documented for a number of years, yet the agency has so far refused to update these drugs’ label warning to reflect this danger. This side effect is especially concerning given the current pandemic, which attacks the respiratory system. It is time to force the FDA’s hand.
Write to the FDA, with a copy to Congress, urging them to add a warning about PPIs and pneumonia to these drugs' labels.
Please warn the public about PPIs and pneumonia risk
Dear [Decision Maker],
