INTRODUCTION

PANTOART 40 contains Pantoprazole which is a proton-pump inhibitor. It is used to treat reflux esophagitis among adults and adolescents (12 years or above). Reflux esophagitis is a condition that causes inflammation of the esophagus along with sensation of movement of acid from stomach to esophagus (acid reflux). PANTOART 40 can also be used to treat peptic ulcer (painful sores in the gut) and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (tumors in pancreas causing the stomach to secrete more acid) among adult patients. It is also used in combination with antibiotics to treat Helicobacter pylori infection among adult patients who have peptic ulcer.

Pantoprazole is a proton-pump inhibitor which works by lowering the amount of stomach acid and helps ulcers to heal and prevents acid reflux symptoms such as heartburn, indigestion, and regurgitation.

Take PANTOART 40 1 hour before a meal. It should be used with caution in pregnant and breast-feeding women only after the advice of your doctor. It is not recommended for use in children below 12 years of age. Before taking PANTOART 40 inform your doctor about your past medical conditions such as osteoporosis, low magnesium levels in the blood. The side effects include headache, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain and dizziness.

HOW PANTOART 40 WORKS

 

PANTOART 40 reduces peptic ulcer and other inflammatory stomach conditions, where pantoprazole acts by reducing the stomach acid secretion by directly inhibiting the proton pump (to H+/K+ ATPase) present in the stomach cells. Blockade of the proton pump can lead to prevention of acid secretion for up to 24 hours or longer, which helps in reducing further inflammation, and healing of ulcers and other lesions present in the stomach.
