- PROTONIX® (pantoprazole sodium) is a prescription drug for the short-term treatment in the healing and relief of symptoms of acid-related damage to the esophagus. This condition is known as erosive esophagitis or erosive gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and is caused by back up of stomach acid into the esophagus.
- PROTONIX can be used for adults and children 5 years of age and older for treatment up to 8 weeks. Adults can receive an additional 8 weeks of treatment if needed. Safety of treatment beyond 8 weeks has not been established in children. PROTONIX can be used to maintain healing of erosive GERD in adults. Studies did not go beyond 12 months.
- PROTONIX is used in adults for the long-term treatment of conditions where your stomach makes too much acid. This includes a rare condition called Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
