    Erosive esophagitis
  • Helped for a couple months, then I started getting acid reflux WAY worse than ever before. I stopped taking it and thankfully the acid reflux got better again. Would not recommend for extended amounts of time.

  • since it has to be taken 30 minutes before breakfast, it does interfere with morning routine.

  • Heartburn and excessive stomach acid production often occurs simultaneously with asthma, and acid reflux can irritate airways while sleeping. The most effective treatment for asthma includes treatment for acid reflux. If you have symptoms, be sure to mention to your doctor so you can be treated for both.

    Excessive stomach acid secretion
  • I was taking Prilosec 20mg once a day, and after having a GI Scope done, the doctor changed my medicine to Protonix. After 6 days I began having the worst side effects! I had stomach cramping, diarrhea, muscle aches (especially in my thighs), and excessive gas. I called my doctor when I couldn't take it anymore and they had me discontinue taking the meds immediately. I am now back on Prilosec, which works wonderfully for me.

  • Substitutes don't work for me. The minute I take a substitute within 48 hours I have symptoms again. For me its either Pantoprazole or Brand name Protonix only!

    Erosive esophagitis
  • It caused far more problems than it tried to help fix. Severe gas and diarrhea kicked in about 2 weeks after starting. Discontinued and went back to pepcid.
