Were you looking for information about Pantoprazole? Pantopazol is a common misspelling of pantoprazole.
If you have certain conditions involving the esophagus, stomach, or intestines, your healthcare provider may prescribe pantoprazole sodium (Protonix®). As part of a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), this drug works by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach. As a result, this medication can help treat conditions such as pathological hypersecretory diseases, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and erosive esophagitis. The medication comes in the form of tablets and oral granule packets, and is usually taken once or twice a day. Seek immediate medical attention if you overdose on pantoprazole.
