Hyperacidity: Ranitidine is used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines and for GERD
Pantoprazole decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach
It is likely that stresses in your life may be causing increased acid in the stomach or contributes to ulcer in stomach
Pantoprazole may cause anxiety. Anxiety due to stress also can cause hyperacidity
