Description of the drug
Pantocidtoprazole is a drug that reduces production of acid in the stomach. It is prescribed for erosive esophagitis, gastric reflux, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Zollinger-Ellison syndrome is caused due to tumor present in the Pantocidcreas. This tumor induces secretion of acid from stomach cells and causes ulceration in the stomach. This drug was approved by the FDA in 2000.
Indications and Usage
Pantocidtoprazole is used in conditions when an excess of gastric acid leads to acid reflux, erosion of esophagus lining and heartburn. It helps in healing of lining of the esophagus and stomach, prevention of ulcer formation and cancer of the esophagus. This medicine can be used in the treatment of ulcerations and their maintenance. Pantocidtoprazole may be prescribed along with antibiotics for treatment of Helicobacter pylori infections. The drug may be used to treat ulcers caused by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that irritate the gastric lining. It belongs to a class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors.
Dosage and Administration
1. Recommended dose:
For treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastric ulcers, and maintenance of erosive esophagitis; a single dose of 40 mg a day for eight weeks is recommended. For duodenal ulcers, 40-120 mg per day for twelve weeks is recommended. For Helicobacter pylori infection-induced ulcers, a dose of 40 mg twice a day (along with appropriate antibiotic) for one week is recommended. For patients suffering from Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, 40-240 mg per day is recommended. Please consult you doctor regarding the cause of ulcers/reflux to determine the dosage required. Do not stop taking the medication until the prescribed regimen is complete. You may experience relief after taking the drug, but do not stop its usage abruptly.
2. Method of Administration:
