Pantoprazole Sod Dr 40 Mg/reaction
I have been taking this pill (for heart attack recovery) since last fall. I already was being treated for vertigo and it seemed to make the vertigo worse plus made me be in a "fog" most of the time. Do I need to change to another generic for Protonix ? ## Hello, John! How are you? This is not a medication used to treat a heart condition of any type. This is a proton pump inhibitor that helps reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to treat or prevent conditions such as heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. It can cause some slight dizziness as a side effect, but it really should't worsen vertigo or cause you to seem to be in a fog. Do you take any other medications? ## Thanks for your reply. I take Enteric Aspirin 81 mg, Clopidogrel 75 mg, Atorvastatin 20 mg, and ...

round yellow pill brown 50 on one side blank the other
Hi there :) I have found a small, round pale yellow pill with a 40 written in brown on one side and blank on the other. It is not at all smudged. I have been searching the net, but cannot figure out what it is. ## I am also. I can't figure it out. Did u yet? I am baffled! Please help ## Im still looking as well! 50 on one and blank on the other side. ## Hi there, I've come across at least a handful of pills that have a very similar description (being off by just one letter or number)...but nothing seems to fit that exact description. I did however notice the original thread starter (LadyLuck) mention that the number was listed as "40" in her description, but "50" in her topic title. I'm not finding the number "50" anywhere, but I did see a round yello...

pantoprazole sod dr 40 mg help please
my doctor gave me this pill and it has not changed any of my symptoms (belching stomach growling sore and tight throat liquid sensation in my stomach) ...sometimes it feels like they've gotten worse. I wait 30 min before breakfast in order to take it. I've been on it for a week and no difference whatsoever. would I be able to stop taking it and try soemthing else? ## Hello, April! How are you? There would be no harm in stopping it to try something else, but it can take several weeks to heal the damage that has been done from excess acid, so not all of your symptoms are going to go away in the first week. However, I actually did better and had much better results from a different class of medications than I did these ones. Pepcid worked best for me, it's available over the co...

pantoprazole 40mg dr and ec
We were receiving the Pantoprazole 40mg EC tablets, yellow~oval~w434. The last refill we received the Pantoprazole 40mg DR tablets, white~oval~KU181. These do not seem to be working as well as the original ones. We were trying to locate the differance between EC and DR. We did discover the DR means delayed release, but found no info on EC. Could you please help us figuring out what the differance is?? Thank You ## Hello, Markayshai! How are you? Both abbreviations really mean they same thing, they just designate it as being a time released formulation. The EC stands for extended control, there are many that the pharmaceutical industry uses for this. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Fantastic! I couldn't find anything anywhere what EC mean't!! Do you know if different m...
