I need a trusted generic manufacturer for Protonix

I have been on the name brand of Protonix since 2000 and it has worked great. My problem started when the generic became available and my insurance company would no longer cover the brand name. The generic medication didn't work at all. I thought it was me, that I became resistant to it. But after talking to the Pfizer nurse (their US Drug Safety Unit) I was told there are bad generic versions of Protonix on the market. I was able to get my insurance company to cover the brand name up until last September 2016. Now they refuse to cover it. There are approximately 17 different generic manufacturers I found on the internet. Has anybody had a generic version of protonix that worked as well as the name brand one? The manufacturer name should be somewhere on your medication bottle. If yo...

Protonix - is 10 years too long?

Hi, I'm Curious About Protonix. Ive Been On It For 10 Years Now... Was on it to heal an ulcer in my stomach. I've continued to take them after the 8 week course because it got rid of my very severe heartburn. Is this safe? I only take one early each morning - I NEVER have any heartburn or affects, so I think...any ideas? ## Have you consulted your doctor? These have only been studied for short-term use, from 8 to 16 weeks, to treat or prevent condition such as ulcers, heartburn, GERD and gastritis. There have been no studies done to evaluate their long-term effects, if any. ## Thank you on that reply. I noticed this during some early reading up on the medicine

Protonix side effects

I am allergic to Yellow #5 which is used to enhance the appearance of products (mainly food) and causes me to have migraines. Is Yellow 5 in Protonix? I took one at midnight and got an occular migraine at 8:45 this morning. I tried to Google it but got nowhere. Thank you. ## No, there isn't any listed in the inactive ingredients for the name brand. They are listed as being: calcium stearate, crospovidone, hypromellose, iron oxide, mannitol, methacrylic acid copolymer, polysorbate 80, povidone, propylene glycol, sodium carbonate, sodium lauryl sulfate, titanium dioxide and triethyl citrate. However, these are only relevant to the name brand. Is that what you are taking? If you are taking the generic Pantoprazole, please post back with more information, such as the manufacture, or the...

I have had 2 panic attack episodes after taking prescription drugs. The first was after taking the second pill of erythromyacin and the most recent was after taking protonix. My anxiety lasts for very long periods of time. I would like to know if anyone else has had a problem with panic attacks or anxiety attacks while taking prescription medication. ## YES, I HAVE SUFFERED FROM ANXIETY & PANIC ATTACKS FOR YEARS.& I JUST LIKE YOU, IF I START A NEW MEDICATION I GET STRONG ANXIETY ATTACKS- THE REASON WHY- IN 1989 WHEN I WAS 3 MONTHS PREGNANT THE DOCTOR KNEW I WAS ALLERGIC TO 1 MEDICINE FOR NAUSEA & I GOT A SHOT OF ANOTHER MED HOWEVER IT WAS IN THE SAME FAMILY AS THE 1 I WAS ALLERGIC TO.

Small Yellow Oval Pill with 40 printed in black on one side, no other markings

I have some pills they are football shaped and are light beige they say 40 in black on one side but have no other markings. What are they please? ## I'm sorry, but I can't find a listing in any of our resources for a pill that meets this description and has just the number 40 on it. Where was it found/obtained? Do you have any other information on it? If there is nothing else to the imprint, this leads me to believe that it is, more than likely, something available over the counter. However, there is also a small chance that it might be a foreign medication. Does anyone recognize this tablet? ## i have them too, but they are supposed to be my refill of Protonix. However, I had some reaction after taking them for several nights, which leads me to believe they are not Protonix 40 ...

Wockha Protonix

i have been taking wockha protonix 40 for a number of years. I just picked up my prescription and the pills look a darker than usual....they say w434 on them....i have been having stomach problems since i started on the latest batch of pills. has wockha made any changes? ## HI, Cindy! Sorry about the problem you're having. I am not aware of any changes having been made to them and nothing is listed in the databases at this time. But the issue might really be that your body has just gotten used to them, so they are no longer working as well for you. Why have you been on them for so long? These are usually just used for short-term treatment, since there are risks associated with long-term use, such as hip fractures.

Side effect from Prontonix

Everytime I take one I get a pain in my left kidney which worries me. ## This is to the person who gets a pain in her left kidney when she takes a protonix pill. I can relate to that. I was prescribed 2 pills a day for the last 5 years or so until 2 wks. ago and the doctor told me to only take 1 pill from now on because it will wreck your kidneys. My kidneys are already wrecked. ## Wow, i have been having kidney pain and it never occurred to me it could be from the Protonix!
