I take two Protonix a day and this week have been having terrible lump in throat/difficulty breathing spells after some meals - not all. I'm pretty sure it is the GERD acting up. Is it possible for Protonix to have a bad effect on the GERD. I've been on the Protonix for about 7 months straight and a couple months last year.

Hi Ohana...this is some information I found...Hope this helps you hun!


What side effects may occur?
Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, tell your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Protonix.

More common side effects may include:
Abdominal pain, burping, diarrhea, gas, headache, insomnia, nausea, rash, vomiting




Special warnings about Protonix
Protonix has been known to cause several extremely rare--but very serious--side effects, including severe allergic reaction, severe swelling of the face and throat, eye damage, dangerous skin reactions, and inflammation of the pancreas. Seek emergency care immediately if you begin to have difficulty breathing or swallowing, or begin to develop blisters, eruptions, or peeling skin.

If you have a liver condition, make sure the doctor is aware of it. A dosage adjustment may be needed for anyone with serious liver disease.




Possible food and drug interactions when taking Protonix
If Protonix is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Protonix with the following:

Ampicillin (Omnipen)
Iron
Ketoconazole (Nizoral)
Warfarin (Coumadin)



I found this information at something called www.healthsquare.com
