Pantoloc Control Gastro-Resistant Tablets
Pantoloc Control Gastro-Resistant Tablets contains the active substance pantoprazole, which blocks the ‘pump’ that produces stomach acid. Hence it reduces the amount of acid in your stomach. Pantoloc Control Gastro-Resistant Tablets are used for the short-term treatment of reflux symptoms (for example heartburn, acid regurgitation) in adults.
Reflux is the backflow of acid from the stomach into the gullet (“foodpipe”), which may become inflamed and painful. This may cause symptoms such as a painful burning sensation in the chest rising up to the throat and a sour taste in the mouth (acid regurgitation).
You may experience relief from your acid reflux and heartburn symptoms after just one day of treatment with Pantoloc Control Gastro-Resistant Tablets, but this medication isn’t meant to bring immediate relief. It may be necessary to take the tablets for 2-3 consecutive days to relieve the symptoms.
The Pantoloc Control active ingredient Pantoprazole comes from a group of medicines called proton pump inhibitors. Among Pantoprazole, there are others such as Omeprazole, Esomeprazole, Lansoprazole and Rabeprazole.
Each of them have slight differences that affect how they’re broken down by the liver and how they interact with other drugs. Some can also last longer and therefore may need to be taken less frequently.
Pantoloc Control tablets work by inhibiting the gastric acid secretion by blocking the hydrogen-potassium adenosine triphosphatase enzyme system of the gastric parietal cell.
In simpler terms, Pantoloc Control Tablets reduce the amount of acid your stomach makes. It is widely used to treat ailments such as indigestion and heartburn/acid reflux.
Under some rare circumstances Pantoloc Control can be used to treat Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. This is a rare condition in which one or more tumours form on the pancreas or upper intestines.

Pantoloc Control Tablets
One of the main conditions Pantoloc Control Tablets treat is heartburn/acid reflux. Heartburn is the burning feeling in the chest caused by stomach acid travelling towards the throat.
The main symptoms of acid reflux are:
- Heartburn – a burning sensation in the middle of your chest
- An unpleasant sour taste in your mouth, caused by stomach acid
It can also cause:
- A cough or hiccups that keep coming back
- A hoarse voice
- Bad breath
- Bloating and feeling sick
Symptoms typically worsen after lying down, bending over, or after eating. The majority of the time, there is no obvious reason why heartburn or acid reflux happens, but people who suffer from it regularly are diagnosed with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, GORD for short.
Before prescribing Pantoloc Control Tablets, your doctor may tell you to do simple lifestyle changes to see if treatment can be achieved without medication. Some of these lifestyle changes may include:
- Eating smaller, more frequent meals
- Try to lose weight if your overweight
- Try to find ways to relax
- Raise one end of your bed 10 to 20cm by putting something under your bed or mattress. Your chest and head should be above the level of your waist, so stomach acid does not travel upwards to the throat.
Pantoloc Control 20 Mg

You should speak to your doctor if you have a serious liver disease. Your Pantoloc Control 20 Mg dosage may have to be adjusted.
Additional investigation may be required called an endoscopy in order to diagnose your condition and/or exclude malignant disease before Pantoloc Control 20 Mg is prescribed.
Taking a proton pump inhibitor like Pantoloc Control 20 Mg, especially over a period of more than one year, may slightly increase your risk of fracture in the hip, wrist or spine.

How Do Gastro Resistant Tablets Work?
A common question we often see online relating to this product is “How do gastro resistant tablets work?”
Gastro Resistant Tablets are designed to temporarily withstand attack by acid produced by the stomach. Each one of the gastro resistant tablets will be specially coated. This coating causes the tablet to resist stomach acid and release the active ingredient in the intestine.
Many different medications will have gastro resistant tablets and will be used for different reasons, however they all have one thing in common. They all need to survive going through the digestive system intact. If they were to otherwise not stay intact whilst passing through stomach acid, the medication wouldn’t work correctly.
If you have any other questions relating to “How do gastro resistant tablets work?” please contact our customer support team for further clarification.
