What is Pantop 40?

Pantop 40 is a treatment for acid reflux and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (heartburn). It contains Pantoprazole as its active ingredient.

Acid reflux happens when the sphincter muscle between the stomach and the oesophagus becomes weak or fails to close tightly, causing food and stomach acids to flow back (reflux) into the oesophagus. When this happens on a regular basis it’s known as heartburn.

Pantop 40 reduces the amount of acid in your stomach which prevents any from travelling into the oesophagus and throat.

Pantop 40 is available as a gastro-resistant tablet (meaning that it passes through the stomach and into the intestine where it can work more effectively) and comes in two dosage sizes: 20mg and 40mg.

How does Pantop 40 work?

Acid reflux and heartburn are common and frustrating conditions that can have a negative effect on quality of life.

The lining of the stomach is made up of cells that contain proton pumps that ‘pump’ acid into the stomach to help with the digestion of food. In some cases, the cells produce too much acid and this can cause irritation to the stomach and other parts of the digestive system. Excess acid made by the cells can flow out of the stomach and into the oesophagus and throat. This acid is what causes the unpleasant feeling of heartburn.

If left untreated, acid reflux can damage the oesophagus and throat. Common conditions caused by ongoing acid reflux, or heartburn, are oesophagitis and laryngitis.

Pantop 40 contains a proton pump inhibitor that prevents the cells from producing excess acid and relieves the short term symptoms of acid reflux and prevents the long-term effects too.

What doses of Pantop 40 are there?

There are two ‘sizes’ of tablets: 20mg and 40mg.

Pantop 40 tablets come in two doses: 20mg and 40mg. The usual dose for acid reflux is one 20mg tablet a day. This dose usually works to relieve symptoms within 2–4 weeks.

When taken to treat heartburn, the length of treatment is longer. A doctor will usually prescribe a higher dose of 40mg per day at the beginning of treatment to treat the effects of acid reflux. Once the throat and stomach have healed, the dose is likely to be reduced to 20mg per day to control the production of acid and prevent a recurrence of symptoms.

Pantop 40 is also suitable for those with existing liver problems, although it’s advised that the dose should be limited to 20mg per day.

How to take Pantop 40

Always take Pantop 40 exactly as your doctor tells you to.

Taking Pantop 40

  • Take the tablets one hour before a meal.
  • Swallow the tablets whole, don’t crush or chew them.
  • Take them with water.

Recommended doses

The recommended dosage of Pantop 40 may vary for each person. Your doctor will be able to suggest the right dose for you based on the severity of your condition. So, you should start taking Pantop 40 only after consulting your doctor.

To treat acid reflux and heartburn, Pantop is usually prescribed

  • One tablet per day for 2–4 weeks.
  • After initial treatment, occasional recurring symptoms can be controlled by taking one tablet per day as required.
  • If symptoms persist, the daily dose can be increased until the effects heal.
    One tablet a day is then taken to control the acid reflux and prevent a recurrence of symptoms.

To prevent duodenal ulcers caused by NSAIDs

  • One tablet per day.

Patients with liver problems

  • Should not exceed one dose per day.

How long does it take Pantop 40 to work?

Pantop 40 is highly effective and starts to offer relief after a single dose as it takes less than three hours for it to fully reach the bloodstream. The usual course of treatment lasts four weeks, and over 98% of people experience significant relief from symptoms in this time.

What should I do if I make a mistake when taking Pantop 40?

If you forget to take a dose of Pantop 40, take it as soon as you remember. If it’s almost time for your next dose, just skip the one you missed and continue as normal. Never take a double dose of Pantop 40.

If you take too much Pantop 40 seek urgent medical assistance.

FAQ: Pantop 40

Have something specific you want to know about Pantop 40? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How is Pantop 40 different to other treatments for heartburn?

Answer:
There are a few different options when it comes to treating heartburn. There are some treatments that are available without prescription. Antacids, like Digene, Gelusil, Eno neutralise stomach acid and can be bought over the counter. H2-receptor antagonists, like Cimetidine, block the effects of histamine in the stomach to reduce acid.

Pantop 40 directly targets acid production by inhibiting the work of the proton pumps. There are other branded medicines that work in this way. Being a generic medication means that Pantop 40 is likely to be more cost effective than expensive branded versions.

Which dose of Pantop 40 should I use?

Answer:
The dose you take will depend on the nature and severity of your symptoms. For example the dose taken for prevention of peptic ulcers differs from that taken for acid reflux. Similarly, the dose taken for a single occurrence of acid reflux will be different to that taken for heartburn.

Typically, a single four week dose of one 20mg tablet a day is enough to treat acid reflux and give the stomach and throat time to heal. In more severe cases treatment might stretch to eight weeks, and sometimes beyond that.

As you work through your treatment plan, your doctor will monitor your progress and may suggest increases in dosage where necessary.

How effective is Pantop 40?

Answer:
Pantop 40 is very effective at treating acid reflux and heartburn because it addresses the root of the problem, and in doing so allows the body to recover from their effects.

Ninety eight percent of people see results after a single four week course of treatment. In more severe cases it can take longer for Pantop 40 to have its maximum effect. In this case, 93% of people with more severe symptoms found Pantop 40 worked after they’d taken it for eight weeks.

Do I need a prescription for Pantop 40?

Answer:
Pantop 40 is only available on prescription because its use needs to be monitored by a doctor. It’s important that the doctor prescribing your treatment has a detailed picture of your symptoms and experience before creating a treatment plan.
