GERD Drugs Important in Hyperacidity H 2  antagonists ( e.g. , cimetidine, ranitidine) Inhibit gastric acid secretion due to histamine  stimulation Proton-pump inhibitors ( e.g. , lansoprazole,  omeprazole) Irreversibly inhibit pump that produces H +  (H  + -K  +   ATPase) Little effect on intrinsic factor, pepsin or overall volume  of secretion Antacids ( e.g. , Mg(OH) 3 , Al(OH) 3 , CaCO 3 ) Neutralize HCl
