pantoprazole 40mg nor sure whether it is working
6 Replies RSS
I have been prescribed pantoprazole 40mg to take one hour before my evening meal. The pill is small, yellow in colour with no markings. It is manufactured by Teva UK. I have been taking this medication for 16 days now and I'm not sure whether it is working. The reflux, gas and nausea have mostly gone, yet I still feel a dull pressing pain in in my upper stomach area. It is not as frequent as before, but it is still present. Is this normal? Everything I read online says I should be cured by now but I know we are all different and my doctor has prescribed the pills for 8 weeks in total. Does it sometimes take a bit longer for the pain to leave or should I request a change to my prescription? thank you. ## I'm not sure what your read, but 16 days is kind of soon to expect it to wor...

3 Replies RSS
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...
