Is it safe to use pantocid the  tablet during pregnancy? If not is there a better tablet that can be used?
Pantoprazole is category b drug (safe in animal studies; not studied in humans). It should be used only in acute gastritis diagnosed by endoscopy. But it is prescribed by majority of doctors for pregnancy induced gastritis, without any ill effects (to my knowledge).

Hello, at the age of 22 years, a requirement of pantoprazole on a regular basis could be either worrisome or wrong practice. There are two suggestions: 1. Please see a gastroenterologist for your dyspepsia. You probably require diet modifications, lifestyle modifications, cessation of smoking if you do, reducing the alcohol intake if you do. If your complaints are still persistent then may require further workup and treatment which is more than and different from taking pantoprazole. 2. Having nipple discharge after prolonged use of pantoprazole is an extremely rare side effect (0.01%). So, under supervision for dyspepsia, you should stop using pantoprazole. Also it is strongly advised that you see a breast surgeon get your nipple discharge evaluated. Nipple discharge could be due to various common causes. Thank you.

Better you can take antacid gel for another 15 days from the day symptoms subsides. And take again if symptoms comes.

You are suffering from IBS in my opinion. You need to regularize your lifestyle and food habits. You don't need medicine.

Dear lybrate-user, the medicines as you told are able to give you just symptomatic cure only, NOT sufficient to give permanent cure from DU. For that you need to take moe superior medicines and follow some rules for your food habit and life style (at least for 1-2 months) till it subsides permanently. The symptoms you have told -'Evening times I feeling very difficult that my stomach was full with air like may be it was gas. Some times I feeling pain in chest @ different places in different times. Sometimes it was so uneasy to sleep' - are due to the side effects of the brands of capsules/medicines your taking.

Can I take thyronorm 75 and pantocid dsr together in morning empty stomach or first I take thyroid tablets 40 minutes after pantocid please suggest.

Hi lybrate-user, it is better to take the thyronorm first in the morning as acid in the stomach is required for absorbing thyronorm. You can take pantocid later. In some patients with prolonged use of medications similar to pantocid, mild increase in dosage of thyronorm has been advised. You need to check your bloods for tsh regularly. Hope this helps.

It needs to be taken empty stomach (at least 4 hrs of empty stomach). And you should have food only after 30 mins of taking the tablet.
