Use of Proton Pump Inhibitors and H2 Antagonists in the paediatric population from 1995 to 2015
Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee did not have the information requested.
From: Joanne Matthews
Dear Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee,
I would like to request the available information on the use of Proton Pump Inhibitors and H2 Antagonists in the paediatric population from 1996 to 2015 in whatever form it is available.
We would like to know the age of recipients, annual totals etc. Disaggregated where possible would provide us with the best ability to discern any changes in rate of diagnosis and prescription patterns over time.
We are trying to ascertain if there has been any discernible increase in the last 20 years.
