Acid reflux is a common condition characterized by a burning pain in the lower chest area, often after eating. Acid reflux happens when stomach acid flows up into the food pipe (oesophagus).
Pantoprazole belongs to a class of drugs called “proton pump inhibitors” (PPIs), which block the enzyme in the wall of the stomach that produces acid, thus decreasing the production of acid in the stomach and alleviating symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough. By decreasing the production of acid, the stomach and the oesophagus are allowed to heal. If you are pregnant, considering becoming pregnant, or if you are breast-feeding, ask your doctor for advice before taking Pantoprazole.
