In brief: Pentoprazole

Pentoprazole lowers the acid in stomach, which with chronic use, can interfere with B12 absorption, hence result in pernicious anemia.
Neurontin (gabapentin) rarely causes anemia.

B12absorption can be hindered by acid suppression due to Pantoprozole. Cases of B12 deficiency have been seen in this situation
