Pantoloc Control Tablets 20mg (Pantoprazole) work at the source of the problem of heartburn to prevent the production of excess stomach acid, offering long-lasting relief for up to 24 hours.

Pantoloc Control is an effective treatment for heartburn as it works to prevent the production of excess acid from your stomach, which is what causes discomforting symptoms of acid reflux. These tablets contain Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) which stops excess acid from becoming produced - therefore lessening the chances of discomfort. Pantoloc can provide you with relief for up to 24 hours at a time and only one tablet should be taken per day.

Directions for use of Pantoloc Control 20Mg:

  • The recommended dose is 20 mg pantoprazole (one tablet) per day.
  • It might be necessary to take the tablets for 2-3 consecutive days to achieve improvement of symptoms. Once complete relief of symptoms has occurred, treatment should be discontinued.
  • The treatment should not exceed 4 weeks without consulting a doctor.
  • If no symptom relief is obtained within 2 weeks of continuous treatment, the patient should be instructed to consult a doctor.

Special populations

No dose adjustment is necessary in elderly patients or in those with impaired renal or liver function.

Paediatric use

Pantoloc Control is not recommended for use in children and adolescents below 18 years of age due to insufficient data on safety and efficacy.

Method of administration

Pantoloc Control 20 mg gastro-resistant tablets should not be chewed or crushed, and should be swallowed whole with liquid before a meal.

Caution before taking Pantoloc Control 20Mg:

Patients should be instructed to consult a doctor if:

  • They have unintentional weight loss, anaemia, gastrointestinal bleeding, dysphagia, persistent vomiting or vomiting with blood, since it may alleviate symptoms and delay diagnosis of a severe condition. In these cases, malignancy should be excluded.
  • They have had previous gastric ulcer or gastrointestinal surgery.
  • They are on continuous symptomatic treatment of indigestion or heartburn for 4 or more weeks.
  • They have jaundice, hepatic impairment, or liver disease.
  • They have any other serious disease affecting general well-being.
  • They are aged over 55 years with new or recently changed symptoms.

Patients with long-term recurrent symptoms of indigestion or heartburn should see their doctor at regular intervals. Especially, patients over 55 years taking any non-prescription indigestion or heartburn remedy on a daily basis should inform their pharmacist or doctor.

Patients should not take another proton pump inhibitor or H2 antagonist concomitantly.

Patients should consult their doctor before taking this medicinal product if they are due to have an endoscopy or urea breath test.

Patients should be advised that the tablets are not intended to provide immediate relief.

Patients may start to experience symptomatic relief after approximately one day of treatment with pantoprazole, but it might be necessary to take it for 7 days to achieve complete heartburn control.

Patients should not take pantoprazole as a preventive medicinal product.

Decreased gastric acidity, due to any means - including proton pump inhibitors - increases gastric counts of bacteria normally present in the gastrointestinal tract. Treatment with acid-reducing medicinal products leads to a slightly increased risk of gastrointestinal infections such as Salmonella, Campylobacter, or C. difficile.

Possible side effect whilst taking Pantoloc Control 20Mg:

Approximately 5% of patients can be expected to experience adverse drug reactions (ADRs). The most commonly reported ADRs are diarrhoea and headache, both occuring in approximately 1% of patients.

Each Pantoloc Control 20Mg gastro-resistant tablet contains:

20 mg pantoprazole (as sodium sesquihydrate)
