What is Protonix used for?
Protonix is prescribed to reduce the amount of stomach acid your body makes. It helps treat symptoms caused by conditions such as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). With GERD, gastric juices flow upward from your stomach and into the esophagus. Protonix relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough. This medication also helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus, helps prevent ulcers, and may help prevent cancer of the esophagus.
