GERD Home > Protenix

Were you looking for information about Protonix? Protenix is a common misspelling of Protonix.
If you experience certain health conditions involving the stomach, esophagus, or intestines, a healthcare provider may prescribe Protonix® (pantoprazole sodium). This medication is a type of proton pump inhibitor (PPI), and it works by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach by blocking acid production sites. As a result, Protonix can help to treat conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), erosive esophagitis, and pathological hypersecretory diseases. Before your healthcare provider prescribes Protonix, he or she will consider several factors, including other medical conditions you have and other medications you may be taking.
