Dosage and Administration
Pantomax is to be taken 1 hour before a meal with some water. One tablet of Pantomax per day. In individual cases the dose may be doubled (increase to 2 tablets PANTOMAX daily) especially when there has been no response to other treatment. A 4-week period is usually required for the treatment of reflux esophagitis. If this is not sufficient, healing will usually be achieved within a further 4 weeks.
Hypersensitivity to the active substance, substituted benzimidazoles or to any of the excipients.
Pregnancy and Lactations
Pantoprazole has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Animal data have failed to reveal evidence of fetal harm after rats or rabbits were given doses 88 and 40 times the recommended human dose (based on body surface area), respectively. There are no data from controlled human studies. Pantoprazole should only be used during pregnancy when need has been clearly established.
Excretion into human milk has been reported. Therefore, a decision on whether to continue/discontinue breastfeeding or to continue/discontinue therapy with PANTOMAX should be made taking into account the benefit of breastfeeding to the child, and the benefit of Pantomax therapy to the mother.
