Yes: It is perfectly okay to use Pepcid AC on an as needed basis for breakthrough symptoms while you are being treated with Protonix (pantoprazole). If you have been taking the protonix (pantoprazole) for awhile and you are having the need for additional medication more than 2 to 3 times per week, then I would suggest that you may need a change to your medical regimen. If so, contact your doctor. Good luck.
