Somac enteric-coated tablets
3 Replies RSS
My sister was taking this and I am looking for information about this drug. What are the uses and possible side effects? ## I would also like to know the side effects of somac please. ## Well, it makes you feel very gassy. ## Somac is an international brand for Pantoprazole - The US brand of this is called Protonix. According to the NIH (DailyMed) it inhibits stomach acid secretion and treats GERD in the short term. Possible risks may include a reduced immune system / infection because stomach acid plays a role in killing bacteria. Side effects reported less than 5% of the time include flatulence, diarrhea, headache, and abdominal pain. If I'm not mistaken the brand Somac exists in Australia (and possibly other countries). I hope this helps!

is weight gain a side effect of this drug? ## Hi e, Interestingly enough, weight gain is actually considered to be a rare side effect of Pantoprazole. It's not listed as a side effect on any of the government websites, but various other articles state this to be so. How long have you been taking it for? ## does pantoprazole make your breast larger ## A friend of mine was telling me the doctor gave this to him about 12 days ago, and he got a large 4 inch itchy swelling on his forearm.

Is it still ok to take proton 40 tab(pantoprazole)?
Post a Reply
I was prescribed by a doctor to tale proton 40. However i did not understand first the instruction of the pharmacist, all i was able to understan was to tale it BEFORE FOOD. And so i did it last night before eating, but now that I read the leaflet, it shows that i should be drinking it 1 hour before breakfast, i already have breakfast, is it still ok to take it? Because it says here that if your forgot to take proton 40, do not tale it late but continue it with the next regular dose on your dosing schedule. Does that mean i should just take it tomorrow before eating? Because if i do that, it will turn out that i interrupt the treatment, although i just started taking it up last night (which was a bad move)-..
