Pantoprazole Sodium

Drug Info for pantoprazole sodium

Pantoprazole is used to treat damage from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition in which backward flow of acid from the stomach causes heartburn and possible injury of the esophagus (the tube between the throat and stomach) in adults and children 5 years of age and older. Pantoprazole is used to allow the esophagus to heal and prevent further damage to the esophagus in adults with GERD. It is also used to treat conditions where the stomach produces too much acid, such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome in adults. Pantoprazole is in a class of medications called proton-pump inhibitors. It works by decreasing the amount of acid made in the stomach.

Protonix is a proton pump inhibitor used to treat certain stomach conditions including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The generic version of Protonix is pantoprazole. The average Protonix price is about $522 for a supply of 30, 40 mg tablets, delayed-release.
