Is pantoprazole as good as Nexium (esomeprazole) or losec?

Is pantoprazole as good as Nexium (esomeprazole) or losec?

Yes, but...: A review in Journal of the American Pharmacists Association (Eval of Omeprazole, Lansoprazole, Pantoprazole, &Rabeprazole in Treatment of Acid-Related Diseases, J Am Pharm Assoc. 2000;40 (1)), there is no difference amongst the proton pump inhibitors (pantoprazole, omeprazole, esomeprazole, rabeprazole). Clinically, we find some people respond better to one than another; if one doesn't work, try another. Read more

Cough (Definition)

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system.

I have a common cold and I'm on pantoprazole magnesium 40mg. Can I drink some cough syrup to get rid of my cold, while I'm on the pill?

I have a common cold and I'm on pantoprazole magnesium 40mg. Can I drink some cough syrup to get rid of my cold, while I'm on the pill?

BCPills: Check with your friendly pharmacist and they can access all drug interactions on their computer. Don't know what is in the cold syrup you have chosen, but most are going to be benign and should not interfere with the effectiveness of your bcps (but this says that you are a man?). If you are concerned about the pantoprazole, do not worry. You will be fine. Read more

What could be the cause of my chronic cough? I have GERD which is controlled with protonix (pantoprazole). Tested negative for allergies. Do have sinus congestion.

Cough: Depends on the pattern of your cough, the 2 other entities that need to be ruled out are asthma and chronic sinusitis. Reflux can still cause a cough if not well controlled. A visit to the allergist may help elucidate the problem. Read more

Can stress cause a GERD flare up, despite daily dose of Pantoprazole? If so would it cause left side back pain, and would whitish flem come up my throat? My throat has been dry because of this but I have no cough.

Can stress cause a GERD flare up, despite daily dose of Pantoprazole? If so would it cause left side back pain, and would whitish flem come up my throat? My throat has been dry because of this but I have no cough.

Stress can increase: Acid formation in the stomach despite the pantoprazole. Increased acid formation needs to be neutralized with medication managment. Increased acid in the stomach can cause laryngo-pharyngeal reflux followed with throat discomfort. I hope this helps.

Is protonix (pantoprazole) effective?

Is protonix (pantoprazole) effective?

Yes, but not for all: Protonix belongs to a class of antacid medication called proton-pump-inhibitor such as the famous purple pill, prilosec. Some examples: prilosec, nexium, prevacid, aciphex, dexilant, (dexlansoprazole) and protonix--they differ slightly, but generally have similar efficacy. One may work for one person, but not another. So, if it is not working for you, consult doc for a change. Good luck. Read more

How can I have reflux while on pantoprazole?

How can I have reflux while on pantoprazole?

Acid block not equal: 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. Read more

If u take ecstasy while on colchicine and pantoprazole what will happen?

Why: Nothing different than if you weren't taking the two meds. More important, why are you taking what you think is ecstasy when you don't know who made it, what's in it, or what it might do to harm your body - particularly when you already have health problems. Read more
