How does Pantoprazole Sodium (Generic Protonix) Works (Mechanism) ?

Pantoprazole Sodium (Generic Protonix) belongs to the group of medicines known as the "proton-pump inhibitors".

The enzyme systems found on cells that line the stomach are termed as "Proton Pumps".

Stomach acid is produced by these proton pumps. Pantoprazole Sodium (Generic Protonix) acts by inhibiting the Proton Pumps. Thereby the production of acid is stopped.

Stomach acid is present as a normal part of the digestive process. Normally the lining of the stomach and duodenum (an area of the intestine directly after the stomach) have a protective layer, which resists acid attack. If this layer is damaged, or large amounts of Stomach acid are formed an ulcer can develop.

Pantoprazole Sodium (Generic Protonix) reduces the amount of acid in the stomach and duodenum. This helps to heal peptic ulcers and helps to prevent them from recurring. Pantoprazole Sodium (Generic Protonix) also helps to relieve the symptoms of reflux oesophagitis.

Pantoprazole Sodium (Generic Protonix) may also be given together with antibiotics to destroy bacteria (Helicobacter pylori) that, if present in the stomach, can contribute to the formation of ulcers.
