Pantoprazole, a PPI medication, works to stop the production of acid in the stomach. It reduces acidity in the stomach and helps to prevent symptoms such as GERD (gastro-oesophagal reflux disorder) or other painful conditions.
You should not chew, break, chew, or crush Pantoprazole tablets. The exact dosage of the liquid suspension should be followed. Ask a physician or medical professional to administer the IV suspension.
Patients with duodenal ulcers should take 15 mg daily for the next four weeks.
Patients with GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) should take 15 mg every day for the next eight weeks.
Patients who plan to use Pantoprazoletablet long-term for GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disorder) or Duodenal Ulcer should take one 15 mg Pantoprazole tablet daily for eight weeks.
Patients aged 18 and over who wish to treat severe oesophagitis or gastric ulcer should take 30 mg of the recommended dosage for a period of 4-8 weeks.
Patients aged 18 and over who want to treat their Zollinger–Ellison Syndrome should take 60 mg per day.
The patient's response to the medication will determine the dosage.
Talk to your doctor if your medical condition doesn't improve or becomes worse after taking Pantoprazole. You should never stop taking Pantoprazole without first talking to your doctor.
Pantoprazole medication may cause the following side effects:
Exhaustion or tiredness
Abnormal heart rate
Fast heart rate or palpitations
Joint or muscle aches
Spasm of your voice box
Spasms of your hands and feet
Low magnesium levels
These are often mild and go away in a few days or as your body adjusts to the medication. If they are rather severe and do not go away easily, make sure to contact your nurse, pharmacist, or physician regarding it.
Using Pantoprazole for more than three months can drastically reduce magnesium levels in the body. If you have used the medication for longer period and or you want to stop the medication altogether, consult your nurse, doctor, or pharmacist before doing so. Do not attempt to increase your dose or lower it without proper advice from a health care professional.
This medication may interact with other drugs, supplements, vitamins, or herbs patients might be taking.
Pantoprazole does not cause drowsiness. One can still drive, operate machinery, or perform tasks that require mental alertness and focus while on medication.
