What is Pantoprazole?

Pantoprazole, also known as Protonix is a prescription medication commonly prescribed for damage caused by Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, also known as GERD.

How Does Pantoprazole Work?

Pantoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor which are medications that decrease stomach acid production. Pantoprazole reduces the production of stomach acid, allowing the esophagus to heal while also preventing further damage caused by the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus.

Pantoprazole Dosage and Treatment

Pantoprazole is used for the treatment of GERD in adults and children over the age of five. The medication comes in tablet and granule form in two different doses:

• 20mg
• 40 mg

For treating GERD, Pantoprazole is usually used once per day. When prescribed for conditions where the stomach produces too much stomach acid, Pantoprazole is generally used twice per day.

Pantoprazole comes in delayed-release tablets and granules. The delayed-release tablets can be taken with or without food, and the granules should be taken a half hour before a meal. The granules come in a packet, and can be taken with a little bit of apple juice or apple sauce, and should be taken immediately once mixed.

Whether you are taking the tablets or granules, it is best to take your prescription at the same time each day and to continue to take your medication each day unless speaking with your doctor about discontinuing Pantoprazole.

If you suffer from GERD or a condition like Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, speaking with a PlushCare world-class doctor can help you determine if this medication can be a beneficial addition to your treatment plan.

Benefits of Pantoprazole

Pantoprazole can be very beneficial for those with GERD or Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, as it can help reduce the painful symptoms related to gastroesophageal reflux symptoms, or too much stomach acid. However, it can also help prevent further damage to the esophagus. The Pantoprazole granules are also helpful for those who have a difficult time swallowing pills.

Side Effects of Pantoprazole

Here are some of the reported side effects of Pantoprazole:

Headache
• Nausea
• Vomiting
• Diarrhea
• Abdominal pain
Dizziness
• Joint pain
• Drowsiness
• Insomnia
• Feeling tired

If you experience any of the following uncomfortable and potentially dangerous side effects while taking Pantoprazole, speak with a health care provider right away:

• Severe stomach pain.
• Kidney issues such as urinating less than your usual amount, or noticing blood in your urine.
• Symptoms of low magnesium such as dizziness, fast heart rate, muscle cramping.
• Pain in your hips, back, or wrists.

Considerations and Precautions with Pantoprazole

There are some considerations to keep in mind before taking Pantoprazole. You will want to tell your doctor about your medical history and be sure to tell your doctor if you have any of the following conditions:

• Low magnesium levels.
• Low levels of B12.
• You are pregnant or plan to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
• You have osteoporosis.
• You have an autoimmune disease.
• You are taking a medication that may cause a drug interaction.

Another thing to keep in mind is that taking Pantoprazole long term, or for more than three years, can lead to a vitamin B12 deficiency, so be sure to speak with your doctor about your risk, and how to prevent a deficiency from occurring.
