Like other medicines, it can be used for eliminating Helicobacter pylori disease. Pantoprazole was used first time in Germany in 1994.
Pantoprazole injection is a short-term treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a disorder in which acid from the stomach travels backward, producing heartburn and perhaps hurting the esophagus. It is used for those who have an esophageal injury and are unable to take pantoprazole orally (the tube between the throat and stomach).
Additionally, it is used to treat disorders like Zollinger-Ellison syndrome where the stomach overproduces acid (tumors in the pancreas and small intestine that caused increased production of stomach acid).
Pantoprazole belongs to the group of medications known as proton-pump inhibitors. It reduces the amount of stomach acid produced.

In some cases, serious side effects may happen as severe allergic reactions, for example, a type of chronic inflammation which is known as atrophic gastritis.
Pantoprazole may insist on infections such as pneumonia in patients who are treated in hospitals. However, the chances of such infections are near to negligible.

When these drugs are used, do not use pantoprazole sodium along with them.
