Protonix—generically known as Pantoprazole—is a proton pump inhibitor type drug. It is used to treat erosion and ulceration of the esophagus associated with gastroesophegeal reflux disease. Protonix is also used to treat Duodenal ulcers. It does so by decreasing gastric acid secretion by inhibiting H+, K+-ATPase. Currently, Protonix is marketed by Wyeth Ayerst Laboratories. Unfortunately, Protonix has some very serious side effects.
Generally, Protonix is administered in two eight week regimens; however, Protonix, when taken for a period of over a year, has a significantly higher chance of causing serious side effects. The risks that increase the most with pro-longed use are bone-related: namely, Protonix has a possibility of causing bone fractures and even osteoporosis. A list of Protonix adverse effects includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- Wrist Fracture
- Spine Fractures
- Abdominal Pain
- Hip Fracture
- Broken Hip
- Broken Bones
- Allergic Reactions
- Heart Attack
- Weight Loss
