Pantoprazole is used to promote esophageal healing and stop future esophageal damage. Additionally, it is applied to disorders where the stomach overproduces acid. Proton pump inhibitors like pantoprazole reduce the quantity of stomach acid production. They require very low maintenance and replacement costs. Pantoprazole is typically administered for up to 8 weeks at a time. For adults and kids who are at least 5 years old, pantoprazole is used to treat erosive esophagitis. This is very effective to use.
