Gastric reflux: Acidic reflux is irritating to the nasal mucosa and can cause symptoms similar to allergy.

Which controls reflux best: 150mg ranitidine twice a day, 20mg protonix (pantoprazole) twice a day, 40mg protonux once a day or combo of both drugs?

Reflux: A lot of people take protonix (pantoprazole) just once daily at either 20 or 40mg and do well but others, anecdotally, seem to prefer taking the 20 mg dose twice daily. Ranitidine can work well for a lot of people as well (twice daily). however, if your reflux is very severe I recommend that you get an evaluation by a gastroenterologist to make sure it's you're only dealing with simple gastroesophageal reflux ...Read more

Treating Acid reflux: I always want to start with why you are not treating the underlying reason for your heart burn?

Is amitriptyline a good medicine to treat panic disorder I was prescribed that and protonix (pantoprazole) yesterday and I'm not sure its going to work?

Is amitriptyline a good medicine to treat panic disorder I was prescribed that and protonix (pantoprazole) yesterday and I'm not sure its going to work?

Not common choices: For Panic Disorder, those medications are not usually prescribed. They are for major depression and gastric acid problems respectively in most cases. Drugs are used 'off label' more and more, so this may be a new choice. Do take the opportunity to clarify w/ the Dr who prescribed. Don't simply ignore it and don't start it until you understand why, what to expect, etc. Take care, be well! ...Read more

Is it true that taking protonix (pantoprazole) can cause a false positive for marijuana on a drug/tox screen?

Is it true that taking protonix (pantoprazole) can cause a false positive for marijuana on a drug/tox screen?

Yes, however...: Until researching this I did not know that Protonix (pantoprazole) can indeed cause a false positive for thc, the chemical tested in marijuana drug screens. However, if you are taking protonix (pantoprazole), (pantoprazole) tell those administering the test first & they can perform further tests to distinguish thc from protonix (pantoprazole). If you test positive, saying you used Protonix (pantoprazole) will not work unless they actually detect its metabolites in you. ...Read more
