GERD Home > Protonix 40 mg Tablets

Protonix® (pantoprazole sodium) is a prescription drug approved for the treatment of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), erosive esophagitis, and pathological hypersecretory conditions.
The medication comes in several different forms and strengths, including:
  • 20 mg Protonix tablets
  • 40 mg Protonix tablets
  • Protonix for oral suspension (individual packets of Protonix granules, containing 40 mg of Protonix per package).
The recommended Protonix dosage for people with GERD who are healing from erosive esophagitis is 40 mg once daily for up to eight weeks. Once the erosive esophagitis is healed, the recommended maintenance dose (to prevent the return of the condition) is 40 mg once a day.
People with excess acid production due to pathological hypersecretory conditions typically take Protonix 40 mg tablets (one tablet, twice a day).
