Protonix Information:

Protonix (Generic name: Pantoprazole Sodium) is a prescription medication that is used to treat acid-related stomach and throat (esophagus) problems such as acid reflux (GERD), erosive esophagitis, and other conditions involving excessive stomach acid production (e.g., Zollinger-Ellison syndrome). Pantoprazole Sodium is known as a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). It decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach. Decreasing extra stomach acid can help relieve symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, persistent cough, and trouble sleeping. It can also prevent serious acid damage to your digestive system (e.g., ulcers, cancer of the esophagus). Protonix may be used in combination with antibiotics including amoxicillin or clarithromycin to treat certain types of ulcers. Take Protonix exactly as it was prescribed for you.
