Abstract: Drug therapy for upper gastrointestinal disease in the elderly must be moderated by the likelihood of increased sensitivity to the side effects of drugs. For example, in the frail elderly with helicobacter-associated duodenal ulcers, maintenance therapy with an H2-receptor antagonist or omeprazole may be preferable to attempting to eradicate Helicobacter pylori with the current antimicrobial regimens.
