Pantoprazole Drug Information

Acid is produced naturally in the stomach and helps digest food. It can also kill germs. Stomach acid can be harmful so the body naturally produces a protective layer called mucus that protects the stomach wall from the effects of the acid. In some people, this protective barrier breaks down and the acid damages the stomach wall, leading to inflammation, ulcers and other illnesses. Some people also have a problem with the upper valve of their stomach and can not prevent the release of acid. This allows the acid to escape and damage the stomach. This is called acid reflux. Proton pump inhibitors, such as pantoprazole, prevent the production of excess acid by stomach cells.

The mechanism of action of drugs such as pantoprazole helps prevent the formation of gastric ulcers and the healing process of gastric ulcers. By reducing the amount of acid, these drugs help reduce the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Pantoprazole is also helpful in fighting Helicobacter pylori infection, which causes stomach ulcers.
