Active ingredient of pantoprazole and mechanism of action
The active ingredient in pantoprazole is pantoprazole sodium. It belongs to a class of medications known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Pantoprazole works by reducing the production of stomach acid. It specifically inhibits the enzyme H+/K+-ATPase in the gastric parietal cells, which leads to a decrease in gastric acid secretion.

- Heartburn, acid reflux
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

The dosage of pantoprazole will vary depending on the specific condition being treated, the severity of symptoms, and individual patient factors. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by your healthcare provider. If you forget to take a dose of pantoprazole, take it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at your normal time. Typically, the recommended adult dose for GERD is 40 mg once daily for up to 8 weeks. Take pantoprazole an hour before a meal, and swallow the tablets whole with a drink of water. You may take antacids with pantoprazole.
