How long does protonix (pantoprazole) and carafate generally take to start giving relief? I have bad stomach pain and heart burn.

In brief: Different

Protonix (pantoprazole) takes at least a day (often several days) to take effect.
Sucralafate works within a few hours. Protonix (pantoprazole) won't be your best option for relieving symptoms right away AFTER they are noticed. Have you tried ranitidine or cimetidine?
