GIT Epigastric pain intervention

Kaplan says that we could let an epigastric pain managed with a trial of PPI if and only if: Patient is YOUNGER than (45) years old AND no alarm symptoms exist


UsmleWorld says the same except of the age; they say he should be YOUNGER than 55 years old,

IF any of the 2 conditions is not met, we must scope

Whats the correct thing to know?
