What is Protonix used for?

 

Protonix is used for the short-term (up to 8 weeks) healing of a gradual breakdown (erosion) or sore (ulceration) in the esophagus which may be caused by the backward flow of gastric acid from the stomach into the esophagus (gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD). For people who have not healed after 8 weeks of treatment, an additional 8 week course of Protonix may be considered.

What should I tell my doctor or health care provider?

  • Tell your doctor or health care provider if you are trying to become pregnant, are already pregnant, or are breast-feeding.
