Can I take pantoprazole-nexium) a year beyond expiration date. I've tried Zantac (ranitidine) for gers and am getting lot of gas pains. Endoscopy in 2 1/2 weeks?
You better don't: Any medication has so named shelf life. That mean that medication still answer to its chemical specification and expected pharmacological effect. Beyond that time point is uncertainty. You may not expect adequate effect from expired medication. There might be potential problems as well. I'd not advise you to take your chances. Go and get new prescription. ...Read more

On 40mg pantoprazole and 150mg Zantac. Doc has me on this for 3 months for gerd. Is it normal to be on this long. Tired of taking pills?
Chronic GERD: It is not unusual for patients to require long term medicine to get GERD symptoms under control and then to maintain that remission of symptoms. Many patients are not able to go off medicines completely. The goal would then be to get down to the least amount of medicines which controls you symptoms well. Anti-reflux precautions help.

Took Pantoprazole for 2weeks ending of 2weeks still had burning throat at night. Got switched to Zantac (ranitidine) & not working well. Best medication treatment?
See your doctor.: If your symptoms returned after two weeks of pantoprazole, you may need it longer-term. I do not recommend taking it long term unless it has been prescribed by a physician, however. I would return to see your gastroenterologist to discuss it further. In the meantime, follow anti-reflux precautions well. Good luck. ...Read more

Suffering from long term acidity & Food/Liquid reflux to food pipe. Taking Zantac. Now, Dr gave me Pantoprazole 40 mg. It sorted the acidity & reflux somehow but every evening, I'm feeling bit nauseous. No vomiting or pain but an urge of wet burping.?
Burping: The meds that you mentioned both tell the cells lining the walls of your stomach to reduce the AMOUNT of acid they produce. Stomach acid can still move up the esophagus. You can try raising the head end of yr bed. A more definitive solution would be to have surgery (a Nissan Fundoplication). Check out on www. Mayoclinic. Com or www. Johnshopkins. Com.

My 14 year old just started pantoprazole 40 mg. Yesterday. He's been having trouble swallowing and sore throat. Zantac (ranitidine) no good. How long until better?
PPI medications: Pantoprazole and other meds like it are very good at calming the symptoms of acid reflux, and work much better than Zantac, (ranitidine) Pepcid, etc. Symptom relief usually occurs in 3-4 days. Your son's difficulty swallowing and sore throat may be unrelated to his acid reflux symptoms. You should contact his doctor about it as may have a throat infection. ...Read more
On protonix (pantoprazole) 40mg twice a day with Zantac 300 at night and its not working. Had an endoscopy with f.I.C.E and it showed only mildly lax les. Symptoms are only in throat. Sore and lump. Stomach is ok.
Options: You are on a pretty good reflux regimen right now. If it's not working, you could increase your medications, change medications to other proton-pump inhibitors or think about the possibility of a nissen fundoplication. Make sure your gastroenterologist knows that the above isn't doing the job. They can make some changes before you have to consider the extreme of surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've been taking naproxen 500 mg bid for almost a month for low back pain, usually on an empty stomach, in the morning. I'm on protonix (pantoprazole) and Zantac for gerd. I've been having stomach pain/pressure today. Could it be gastritis?
Yes: It is certainly possible that you have gastritis due to the anti-inflammatory that you've been taking daily. Stop the naproxen, and see your doctor to make sure that you don't have any evidence of gastric bleeding. Continue the Protonix (pantoprazole) and zantac. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
