How Pantoprazole Works
Pantoprazole is the active medicinal ingredient found in Protonix; it is primarily used to treat stomach ulcers and acid refulx. Pantoprazole reduces the amount of acid in the stomach which helps to treat stomach problems related to stomach acids. Pantoprazole may be used in combination with other medications such as antibiotics to treat stomach ulcers. You doctor may have prescribed Pantoprazole for reason/conditions other than those listed; therefore it is important to take Pantoprazole exactly as prescribed.
Generic Pantoprazole vs Brand Protonix
Brand and generic Protonix; both contain the medical ingredient Pantoprazole. Brand Pantoprazole is primarily marketed as Protonix in North America but can go by different brand names in other parts of the world. Your order of Protonix may have an alternate name depending on its country of origin. Generic Protonix or Pantoprazole is manufactured outside of a Pfizer facility; this is the biggest difference between Protonix and Pantoprazole. Generic Pantoprazole and Protonix are identical in dose, strength, safety, efficacy, chemical makeup and therapeutic use. We currently have brand from Turkey and New Zealand and the generic from UK and India. It may come from other countries around the world.
