What is Pantoprazole?

Pantoprazole is an oral drug used to treat excess gas in the oesophagus. The acid may be caused by Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The drug is recommended for persons above five years. It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. This medication relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and a persistent cough.

How Does Pantoprazole Work?

The stomach has a muscular ring that seals the oesophagus called the oesophagal sphincter. When swallowing food, the sphincter opens, allowing food into your stomach. It squeezes tight to prevent gas and food from returning backwards. Otherwise, acids irritate the oesophagal lining. Pantoprazole works to reduce the enzymes and acids produced during digestion. This reduces the acid that causes symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux.


Pantoprazole Warning

Talk to your doctor in case you are on other medication before taking Pantoprazole to reduce indigestion. The drug may be unsuitable for you if you have:
  • Low levels of magnesium in your blood.
  • If you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
  • Benefits of taking Pantoprazole if you are 70 years of age or older.


How to Use Pantoprazole

  • Swallow the tablet once a day or as directed by the doctor.
  • Pantoprazole can be taken with or without food. Do not split, crush, or chew the medication.
  • If you are taking the granules, take your dose 30 minutes before a meal. You may mix them with apple juice.
  • Take medicine at the same time each day to help you remember for the prescribed duration.
  • If you miss a dose, take it soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double amount to make up for a missed dose.
