Common Questions and Answers about Pantoprazole drip

So I went to a gastroenterologist and he said that I have acid reflux so he put me on medication. Omeprazole 20 mg and Pantoprazole sod 40 mg, the medicine is not doing any good. I always thought that if a person had acid reflux they would have a burning in the thoat. I don`t have any burning. Is there a possibility that I have somthing else wrong or could I be taking the medicine wrong. This constantly having to clear my thoat is driving me crazy.
I have no heartburn or reflux type symptoms and my EDG showed only 1 small erosion. I've been on PPI's like pantoprazole, omeprazole, lanoprazole, all because of this "lump sensation" that developed years ago. On the PPI's it became semi-manageable but looking back this was the only reason that lead the doctors I was seeing to believe its GERD. A recent Upper Endoscopy showed 1 small erosion and my lower tonsils (going down my throat) are the size of grapes.

We then revisited our GP who thought it may be reflux associated, he was commenced on pantoprazole 40mg daily. He has been taking this now for 5 weeks with little to no effect as well as cutting down his smoking and avoiding dairy products. Whilst he has days where it is managable.....he often has nights where he is unable to sleep until he finally sleeps out of pure exhaustion.
If there is no fever, no allergies, no running nose etc, then post nasal drip is ruled out. Then the cause could be gastric reflux or hiatal hernia. Treatment is a combination of drugs to reduce the acid and lifestyle changes. You will need to take a combination of medications (under medical supervision) like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals for complete relief.

Silent reflux will not present as symptoms.....post nasal drip can cause reflux and so can a hiatal hernia..... Watching the diet will help lessen the acid production along with meds...... So I am not sure which dr dx u ....was it a GI dr??....U may want to be checked for a hiatal hernia......and ENT can also check u for post nasal drip or ur PCP can detect that also.
I have had two endoscopes and one bronchoscope, scans, x rays and although none of these tests have concluded that I have Gerd, all the symptoms are there!!! This June, I took a two month course of Pantoprazole along with Gaviscon after every meal. After reading the side affects and researching alternative remedies I stopped taking the meds and started to take Aloe Vera twice a day, Spirulina ( as I feel constantly tired ) probiotics and cod liver oil capsule.
Your symptoms could be a combination of deviated nasal septum and uncontrolled GERD. You could be having persistent post nasal drip and sinusitis and thus headache due to congestion caused by a laryngo-tracheal reflux of gastric contents. Treatment of GERD is a combination of drugs to reduce the acid and lifestyle changes.

I supplement with TUMS and now avoid foods that trigger acid reflux like tomatoes and wine for me (even ketchup! which I love). Nasal congestion and post nasal drip are improved also. There are always trade offs with medications - relief vs. side effects. But I think we all have to be better educated consumers since no physician can know everything about the pharmacopia of drugs that are prescribed. I sure with they would listen to us better when we have complaints!
They brought an ENT down to stick a scope through my nose and check my throat. He said it was post nasal drip and that the mucus was spilling into my throat. So i was released from the emergency room and continued to take the medicine i was prescribed. i was feeling better for like 2 weeks until recently. Yesterday, i felt faint and nauseous and wanting to throw up but i couldnt. i took a 2 hr nap and woke up feeling the same way.
In november I started having this feeling like my tongue was burning also like something was pinching me inside my tongue it also felt as if tiny pieces of rocks were in my tongue but it was only the left side of my tongue the right side felt find I went back to the ENT the doctor prescribe (Pantoprazole) the doctor said maybe I was having some type of reflux problem but like the other medications I was still in pain and back at the beginning.
Also deep belching after even a drink of water. I have had postnasal drip for years, but this seems to be particularly bad now. My family Dr. thought I may have acid reflux and put me on Pantoprazole, was on it for a month, but my symptoms got worse. Tried Nexum but no difference. I have been eating low fat and low acid foods, no coffee, tea or chocolate but no difference. I can only eat a tiny meal or I will have the pain spasms/palpitations. I've lost 10 lbs.
In July I have seen the LPR expert in NYC. She confirmed that I have LPR (of course), and put me on some mild PPI (Pantoprazole 40mg, Zantax 150mg), as well as strict 2 weeks diet without any acidic ingredients. I have been on the pills and diet for almost 3 weeks at this point. My main symptoms got a bit better but persist (e.g. lump in through, mucus, difficulty to draw breath).
I'm so sorry you lost your job. I wish I could help you. I also have GERD and recommend a better diet. I was on pantoprazole(proton pump inhibitor) which is similar and I feel it won't help you without an antibiotic. The nausea is very likely from an irritation in the lining. I am very against having that medicine in stores! When I saw that medicine in stores 3 weeks ago I was shocked! I know specialists are so expensive , But you should not be on medicine without a doctor.
Doc said not to worry I now have sore chest,tongue and throat ,achy armpits,cobblestone throat,postnasal drip,painful lymph nodes(below ears),feverish(98F) ,Upper arm and upper back pain,stiff neck Sinus rinse and nasal spray has helped to some extent..so am on this for 1 month....have had 25% reduction in pain I get up in the morning with no sore throat or any other symptoms,...It just gets worse as the day progresses Sore throat subsides for 15 mintues after i eat,,,then it comes back...
I'm not a doctor, but I do know that having your gallbladder removed may not necessarily mean you are free and clear from those issues. did they clamp off the ducts or leave them open? Most times they are left open so they can drip directly into the system, but sometimes people don't respond well to this. I still have my gallbladder, but do have pancreatic issues.
It's happened another 3 or 4 times in the last year, but much milder than the first. Post nasal drip from colds or allergies seems to do it. I hate getting sick now, not only because it makes another attack more likely, but because the first attack freaked me out so bad I now have intermittent anxiety. I just had a small lanrygospasm attack today, fortunately/unfortunately in front of my daughter, and I felt the anxiety kicking in afterwards.
My cough is pretty much day and night, usually dry, but at times there's a bit of mucus or post nasal drip. It started after I had bronchitis, which I'm prone to, and the cough always would last several months after I was "cured." This time it didn't stop. It used to be that the tickle would sometimes be in my chest, but now it's always in my throat. Any tickle starts what my dr.
