Pantoprazole, first sold under the brand name Protonix, is used for short-term treatment of erosive esophagitis associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), maintenance of healing of erosive esophagitis, and pathological hypersecretory conditions including Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Some common side effects of pantoprazole use in adults include: headache, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, flatulence, dizziness, and joint pain (>2%). Use of pantoprazole for a long period of time may lead to chronic inflammation of stomach lining or atrophic gastritis, vitamin B-12 deficiency, and low magnesium. Pantoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor drug that inhibits gastric acid secretion. It works on gastric parietal cells to irreversibly inhibit (H+/K+)-ATPase function and suppress the production of gastric acid.
