Pantoloc contains the generic ingredient pantoprazole, which belongs to the class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors. Pantoloc is used to treat conditions caused by excess stomach acid such as heartburn and peptic ulcers.
Doctors prescribe Pantoloc to patients with disorders caused by stomach acid, such as heartburn, GERD, stomach (gastric) ulcers or duodenal ulcers (the first part of the small intestine). For patients with duodenal ulcers that are caused by bacteria, doctors prescribe Pantoloc along with antibiotics. For patients using NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to treat other conditions, doctors prescribe Pantoloc to help stop the formation of ulcers.
As part of normal digestion, proton pumps are found on cells that line the stomach and produce stomach acid. Pantoloc works by inhibiting the action of these proton pumps, which reduces the production of stomach acid.
Your doctor will prescribe the dosage, which is best for your particular condition. For patients with GERD, the usual adult dose is 40mg taken orally once daily for up to four weeks.
These may not be all the side effects of Pantoloc 40mg.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when a sphincter at the end of your esophagus (the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach) does not close as well as it should. This allows stomach acid to leak backwards, or reflux, into the esophagus and irritate the lining. GERD signs and symptoms include a burning sensation in your chest, sometimes spreading to your throat, along with a sour taste in your mouth, dry cough, sore throat, chest pain, difficulty swallowing, or acid reflux (regurgitation of food or sour liquid). Although it can affect anyone, people who are overweight, eat large meals or smoke tend to be more at risk for developing GERD. Extra weight causes more pressure on the stomach and diaphragm and can result in reflux. Without treatment, chronic GERD can cause bleeding, inflammation, ulcers, and scarring. GERD can also lead to changes in the cells that line the esophagus, which may be a precancerous condition known as Barrett's esophagus. If initial medications like antacids are not enough, doctors may recommend prescription drugs or surgery.
