About Pantoprazole Tablets

Pantoprazole is a prescription-only-medicine used to treat acid reflux, heartburn, and other similar conditions. Acid reflux occurs when digestive acid escapes the stomach and enters the oesophagus. Heartburn is felt as a result of acid reflux, where the ejected stomach acid begins to irritate the soft tissues in the oesophagus. Pantoprazole works to inhibit the production of stomach acid, thus making it less likely that any will escape into the oesophagus. The tablets will reach their full effect within two and a half hours, and will provide relief for up to 24 hours. Pantoprazole tablets are smaller than other similar acid reflux treatments, so may be the preferable option if you have difficulty swallowing large capsules.

The digestive acids contained within the stomach play an important role in the digestive process. As food enters the stomach, these acids will break it down, before it can continue its journey through the intestines. Normally, these acids are contained within the stomach by a group of muscles called the oesophageal sphincter. This sphincter is found at the top of the stomach and acts as a one-way barrier, allowing food to travel down into the stomach, but preventing acid and other substances from escaping upwards into the oesophagus. However, for a variety of reasons, this sphincter can weaken. As a result, small quantities of stomach acid can penetrate this barrier and enter the oesophagus. This is what is known as acid reflux. Heartburn is an associated symptom of acid reflux, where the acid in the oesophagus irritates the surrounding tissues. Heartburn, despite its name, does not involve the heart. The name derives merely from the fact that the pain is felt around the base of the chest cavity.

What is Pantoprazole?

Pantoprazole contains the active substance pantoprazole. Pantoprazole is a selective "proton pump" inhibitor, a medicine that reduces the amount of acid produced in your stomach. It is used to treat stomach and intestinal acid-related diseases.

How does it work?

Pantoprazole is a substituted benzimidazole that inhibits the secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach by specifically blocking the proton pump from parietal cells.

Pantoprazole is transformed into its active form in the secretory canaliculus of parietal cells where it inhibits the enzyme H + / K + ATPase, that is, in the final stage of the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Inhibition is dose-dependent and affects both basal and stimulated acid secretion.

In most patients, the cessation of symptoms is reached in two weeks. Like other proton pump inhibitors and H2 receptor antagonists, treatment with pantoprazole results in decreased acidity in the stomach and therefore an increase in gastrin proportional to decreased acidity. The increase in gastrin is reversible. Since pantoprazole binds to the enzyme in a distal area at the level of the cellular receptor, it can inhibit the secretion of hydrochloric acid independently of the stimulation by other substances (acetylcholine, histamine, and gastrin). The effect is the same whether it is administered intravenously or orally.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Pantoprazole uses include treating adults and adolescents from 12 years of age to treat:

Reflux esophagitis. It is an inflammation of your esophagus (the tube that connects your throat to your stomach) accompanied by regurgitation of acid from the stomach.

Pantoprazole is used in adults to treat:

infection of a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori in patients with a stomach and / or duodenal ulcer in combination with two antibiotics (eradication treatment). The goal is to get rid of the bacteria and thus reduce the chance of ulcers coming back, stomach and duodenal ulcer, and, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome and other conditions in which too much acid is produced in the stomach.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this Gastrointestinal medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. If in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist again.
