In brief: Probably not.

Although proton pump inhibitors (acid suppressing drugs) may have an effect on the effectiveness of Plavix in the lab there don't seem to be a definite clinical effect.
It appears that Protonix (pantoprazole) is even less likely to cause a clinically significant interaction.
