champagnesupernova3Reducing acid production helps mucosa heal alot more than increasing prostaglandins. We learn about misoprostol because it can be used if you dont have anything else but you're never gonna choose it over a PPI+2019-10-07T21:28:08Z
nala_ulaFamotidine is an H2 blocker which really only stops acid secretion via the stimulation of H+/K+ ATPase by histamine, but it still has vagus and gastrin stimulation.
If you use Omeprazole, you get irreversible inhibition of the pump itself which stops the secretion of acid even if there is histamine, gastrin, vagus stimulation.+32019-06-16T19:07:53Z
temmywhat about the healing of her mucosa. Is that not the action of prostaglandin?. That threw me off cos according to FA, misoprostol increases secretion of the gastric mucosa+42019-07-10T20:51:16Z
