More information about Pantoprazole
Pantoprazole is a medication used to combat acid reflux and any complications. It belongs to a group of medicines called proton pump inhibitors. These medicines stop excess stomach acid from being produced, providing relief from symptoms for up to 24 hours.
Pantoprazole can effectively treat the following conditions:
The cells that line your stomach contain proton pumps - these are the mechanisms that produce stomach acid. In moderate amounts, acid aids digestion, but excessive amounts can lead to acid reflux and associated heartburn and pain. As a proton pump inhibitor, Pantoprazole reduces the amount of acid these cells can produce.
If excess stomach acid is produced, or if the protective layer in your stomach and small intestine is damaged, a peptic ulcer can form. Taking Pantoprazole can give your body the time to heal.
To treat ulcers caused by infection, Pantoprazole is generally prescribed alongside antibiotics, to eradicate the bacteria.
Pantoprazole tablets are available in two dosages- 20mg and 40mg.
Pantoprazole is also available in a powder solution.
The standard dosage for treating heartburn is one 20mg tablet a day, for a maximum of 4 weeks.
For other conditions, your doctor will advise you how many tablets to take, how often and for how long. This will depend on the condition being treated, and this advice will be detailed in the patient leaflet.
Pantoprazole tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water, one hour before a meal. Do not break, crush or chew them.
If symptoms don’t improve after two weeks, you should seek medical advice from your doctor.
Not everybody taking Pantoprazole will suffer from side effects, however, those most commonly reported include:
You should always tell your doctor or pharmacist what other medicines you are taking, including prescription and over-the-counter medications. They will need this information to determine whether there is a risk of interactions.
Pantoprazole can enhance the anti-blood-clotting effects of Warfarin, so if you are taking this medicine you should consult your doctor.
This medicine should be used with caution by those who have:
There is a slightly increased risk of infections in the stomach, such as Campylobacter or Salmonella, when taking this medicine.
This medicine is not recommended for use in children under 12 years of age.
Breastfeeding mothers and pregnant women should not use Pantoprazole without first consulting their doctor, as it is not known whether this medicine can pass into breast milk.
