What Protonix is and what it is used for
PANTOLOC Control contains the active substance pantoprazole, which blocks the ‘pump’ that produces stomach acid. Hence it reduces the amount of acid in your stomach. PANTOLOC Control is used for the short-term treatment of reflux symptoms (for example heartburn, acid regurgitation) in adults. Reflux is the backflow of acid from the stomach into the gullet (“foodpipe”), which may become inflamed and painful. This may cause you symptoms such as a painful burning sensation in the chest rising up to the throat (heartburn) and a sour taste in the mouth (acid regurgitation). You may experience relief from your acid reflux and heartburn symptoms after just one day of treatment with PANTOLOC Control, but this medicine is not meant to bring immediate relief. It may be necessary to take the tablets for 2–3 consecutive days to relieve the symptoms. You must talk to a doctor if you do not feel better or if you feel worse after 2 weeks
