Pediatric and Off-Label Protonix Indications

Is Protonix Used for Children?

Protonix is approved for short-term treatment (no more than eight weeks) of erosive esophagitis due to GERD in children as young as five years old. Although studies showed that Protonix was safe and effective for this use for children as young as one year old, there is no age-appropriate dosage form (and strength) for very young children.
 

Is Protonix Used for Off-Label Reasons?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend using Protonix for something other than the conditions listed above. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, however, there are no known off-label uses for Protonix.
