Pantoprazole: Pantopraxole is normally used for GERD and not for constipation. It can however, cause diarrhea, but that is not the way to cure your constipation. For immediate relief take Miralax (polyethylene glycol). However, there is a good chance that you will need a diet change that includes a high fiber diet for permanent relief
