Long term use of acid suppressants has been associated with reduced bone strength due to reduced calcium absorption. If you do not need the drug then you can certainly stop. If you are stopping then first mention this to your doctor, then you need to stop gradually perhaps by taking on alternative days and then every couple of days for a week or so. This reduces the 'rebound' effect of stopping the medication.
