Pantoprazole (generic Protonix) is a member of the class of agents known as "proton pump inhibitors" (PPI's). Others in the class include: Prilosec (omeprazole), Prevacid (lansoprazole), Aciphex, Nexium, Dexilant, Zegerid. All will block acid production in the stomach. Protonix works if your gastritis is peptic (e.g. acid-mediated) and not related to bile injury, caustic ingestion, infection.

How can I have reflux while on pantoprazole?

Acid block not equal

Motility
So acid blockers like omeprazole and pantoprazole due block acid production but not the fact that there is 'stuff' in your stomach. This 'stuff' (stomach juices, food, etc), still potentially can reflux back into the esophagus. Sometimes things like motility agents (that help things move south instead of norht) are more often used for refractory reflux.
