Hi,i just started Pantoprazole 3 weeks ago,a low dose of 20mg,feel a lot of nausea and wind etc,going to ask doc to increase dose tommorrow,these are my last hope as ive tried all the other ppis for the last 4 years and while they help with the reflux the side effects i get are terrible,with nexium being the worst.What dosage of Pantoprazole are you taking and was nexium making you ill? BAZ.

Hey pigeonman, I too have tried Nexium 40mg 2x a day, I was on that for months and finally I went anss saw a new doctor nd he too suffered from Acid Reflux and tried Nexium 40mg and it didn't work for him so he suggested that I try Pantoprazole 40mg 2x a day and also domperidone 10mg 4 x a day(before each meal and before bed) and it seems to be working for me. I hate to jinx myself lol. I had been suffering from acid reflux, waking up choking on bile and bad chest pains what felt like all day every day. I feel much better lately and I have been taking pantoprozole 40mg 2x a day for 4months along with the donperidone. Aparentley when Nexium works for some people it works great, but the other people it just doesn't do anything for them.
I just had an ultrasound done, found nothing, had a barium swallow, found nothing and just last Wednesday I had a endoscopy done and aparentley it was mildly irritated around my stomach and a very small area of irritation at the beginning of the esophagus(spelling) to the stomach. The doctor took 3 biopsies and I will get the results back around Feb 16/11. Hopefully the problem will arise as I am tired of taking pills every day all day. :(
Good Luck with everything, keep me posted.

Hi, Pigeonman,ive tried all PPIs and find that it can take 4 to 6 weeks for them to get you settled though, thats just my opinion.I Felt really low on Nexium,a kind of depression,kept going to Doctors complaining of fatigue,ringing in the ears and generally unwell.Doctors told me that it wouldnt be the Nexium,so i just stopped taking them and within a week felt back to my self,this lasted 3 months then the reflux came back so it was back to drugs again.I was put on H2 blockers 900mg of ranitadine and within 3 months ended up with Folate and B12 deficiency,total nightmare!Hope the Pantoprazole get you sorted out,just give it a bit of time and hopefully no side effects! All the Best! Baz.
