Protonix - Overview
Protonix is a medication used in the treatment of some cases of erosive esophagitis and some hypersecretory conditions. People who need a Protonix prescription can connect with a local medical provider using Push Health and get Protonix, including generic Protonix medication and Protonix 40 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Protonix Used For?
Protonix contains the active ingredient pantoprazole sodium. Protonix belongs to a class of medications known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) - similar to drugs like esomeprazole (Nexium) and omeprazole. Protonix is used in the management of some cases of erosive esophagitis, a condition in which acid from the stomach causes destruction of inner layers of the esophagus through ongoing irritation and subsequent inflammation. Protonix works by binding an enzyme system known as ATPase at the surface of cells in the stomach, resulting in suppression of the production of gastric acid.
Protonix - Dosage and Cost
Protonix is available in two forms of delayed-release tablets - Protonix 20 mg tablets and Protonix 40 mg tablets. Protonix is also available as an oral suspension. After administration, Protonix does not accumulate in the body and peak levels in the plasma have been observed at 150 minutes. Protonix tablets can be taken with food although there may be a delay in absorption of the medication when taken this way. Branded Protonix tablets are expensive, costing approximately $15 per Protonix 40 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Some insurance plans may cover the costs associated with a Protonix medication prescription and Protonix coupons can be found online at times. Generic Protonix is often cheaper than branded Protonix tablets.
Can I Buy Protonix Online?
Protonix requires a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. Because of this, Protonix OTC is not available from pharmacies and one cannot just buy Protonix online. The first step to getting Protonix is consulting with a medical provider, and Push Health can connect people with a licensed medical provider in the area who can prescribe Protonix medication when appropriate to do so.
Protonix - Side Effects
Protonix can cause side effects which should be discussed with one's medical provider and pharmacist prior to being used. Side effects that may result from Protonix medication use include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, lightheadedness, abdominal pain, flatulence and joint pain. Low magnesium levels and atrophic gastritis can result from long-term use. Care should be taken when Protonix is used in conjunction with other medications. Protonix and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to Protonix or ingredients in the formulation should not use Protonix.
