Pantoloc is a brand name of a medication that treats stomach acid related problems such as stomach ulcers, heartburn and GERD. The active ingredient in Pantoloc is a generic drug called pantoprazole, which belongs to a family of drugs called proton pump inhibitors.
Doctors prescribe Pantoloc to patients who have stomach or duodenal ulcers, reflux esophagitis or GERD. Doctors may also prescribe this medication to patients who are taking NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) in order to prevent stomach and duodenal ulcers from forming.
Normally, the stomach produces acid as part of the digestive process. If there is too much acid, an ulcer or sore can form. Sometimes acid flows back into the esophagus and causes heartburn. Pantoloc works by reducing the amount of acid that is produced, thereby preventing these conditions from occurring.
You should take Pantoloc exactly as prescribed. For patients with stomach ulcers, the usual recommended adult dose is 40mg taken orally once in the morning. Healing usually occurs within four weeks. If not, your doctor may prescribe an additional four weeks of treatment.
These may not be all the side effects of Pantoloc 20mg.
Do not take Pantoloc if you are allergic to pantoprazole or any of its non-medicinal ingredients. Do not use this medication if you are taking rilpivirine.
If you have a rapid heartbeat or muscle twitching, you may have low magnesium levels, which you should discuss with your doctor. Let your doctor know if you have unexplained weight loss, diarrhea, dark stools or anemia.
Store Pantoloc between 15°C and 30°C. Keep out of the reach of children.
GERD stands for gastroesophageal reflux disease, which is a chronic digestive disease. The American College of Gastroenterology has defined GERD as “chronic symptoms or mucosal damage produced by the abnormal reflux of gastric contents into the esophagus.” In patients with GERD, the acid from the stomach flows back into the esophagus and causes irritation. Typically, the reflux disease involves about 10cm of area around the esophagus and stomach. Symptoms may include heartburn, pain when you swallow, trouble swallowing food or liquids, chest pain or a cough. When you experience these signs and symptoms at least twice each week or they interfere with your daily life, or when your doctor can see damage to your esophagus, you may be diagnosed with GERD. The constant irritation of the lining of your esophagus from your stomach acid can lead to narrowing of the esophagus from scar tissue, an esophageal ulcer which may bleed and cause pain and a precancerous condition called Barrett’s esophagus. Treatments include over-the-counter drugs, prescription-strength medications and surgery.
