Buy Pantoprazole from a UK Pharmacy

Pantoprazole belongs to a class of medication called proton pump inhibitors. It reduces the amount of acid that the stomach produces. Pantoprazole is used to treat several acid-related conditions of the stomach and intestine, including gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), commonly known as heartburn.

Pantoprazole is available in the form of 20 mg and 40 mg tablets.

We offer a discreet, next-day delivery service on orders approved before 3pm, Monday to Friday. To buy Pantoprazole online from Prescription Doctor today, simply fill out our medical questionnaire.

What Is Heartburn?

Heartburn is the colloquial name given to acid reflux and describes the primary symptom-a burning sensation in the chest. Heartburn occurs when stomach acid refluxes back into the oesophagus and causes irritation and inflammation of the unprotected oesophageal lining.

Acid reflux symptoms often feel worse when bending over or lying flat after taking a heavy meal. Common foods and drinks, including carbonated drinks, acidic foods, fruits and juices, high-fat content foods and chocolate stimulate an increase in stomach acid production. Heartburn is highly likely with the consistent consumption of these foods.

Over a long time, acid reflux may cause severe damage to the lining of the oesophagus. If untreated, the pain of heartburn may only get worse. Heartburn should be treated as soon as possible.

How Does Pantoprazole Work?

Pantoprazole prevents the cells in the stomach from secreting acid. With controlled production of stomach acid, there is reduced risk of the acid rising and flowing back into the oesophagus where it may cause the uncomfortable and painful GORD symptoms, including heartburn.

How do I take Pantoprazole?

Unless instructed otherwise by your doctor, a dose of one tablet a day for 4-8 weeks is recommended for treatment of heartburn.

Swallow Pantoprazole tablets whole with a glass of water. The tablets may be taken with, or without food.

Your doctor will tell you exactly how long you should take medicine for and may change your dosage depending on your condition and response to treatment.

Side effects and cautions

Before taking Pantoprazole, it is recommended to familiarise yourself with the patient information leaflet (PIL) which comes enclosed with your medicine. You should keep this document in case you need to refer back to it in the future.


Do not take Pantoprazole if you are allergic to proton pump inhibitors or any of the ingredients of pantoprazole.

If you experience an allergic reaction after taking Pantoprazole, speak to your doctor immediately.

Signs of an allergic reaction include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Raised, itchy, lumpy rash (hives)
  • Swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat


Pantoprazole may not be suitable for you. If you are not sure whether it is safe for you to take Pantoprazole, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist.

  • Are due to have certain blood tests (Chromogranin A)
  • Are taking atazanavir (for HIV infection)
  • Are taking corticosteroids
  • Have osteoperosis
  • Have severe liver problems
  • Take NSAIDs regularly

Pantoprazole may interact with other medicine you may be taking. During your online consultation, you should inform our doctor of all the medicines you are currently taking, including those bought over-the-counter, prescription medicine, and health or dietary supplements.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

There is insufficient data to determine the safety of Pantoprazole when used during pregnancy and nursing.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak to your GP to determine whether it is safe for you to take Pantoprazole.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I forget to take Pantoprazole when I should?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember to do so. Do not take a double dose to make up for the missed dose. Take the next dose at the usual time that you usually would.

What if I take too much Pantoprazole?

Accidentally taking an extra dose is unlikely to harm you. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist right away if you take too much of the medicine.

Will I be able to drive and operate heavy machinery while on Pantoprazole?

Do not drive or operate machinery until you feel better if you experience any side effects such as visual disturbance and dizziness.

Can I drink alcohol while on Pantoprazole?

It is quite unlikely that alcohol will interact with Pantoprazole. You should, however, limit, or even avoid drinking alcohol during your treatment because alcohol consumption has the potential to exacerbate your symptoms.

What's the difference between Pantoprazole and Omeprazole?

Pantoprazole is a branded version of Omeprazole.

How soon after taking Pantoprazole, will it start working?

It may be a couple of days, or as long as up to 4 weeks before you notice some change. Speak to your doctor if you see no change after two weeks of consistently using the medicine.

How do I come off the treatment?

With regular check-ups with your doctor, Pantoprazole is safe for long term use. Your doctor will advise on when to stop taking the medication.
