Is there anyone who has been on Pantoprazole for an extended period of time? My Dr just put me on it and I'm concerned about the long term effects on my body. Thanks in advance!

      I've been on it for about 8 years. I have been worried about side effects but my doctor told me I had a greater chance of esophageal cancer if I didn't manage my gerd. I have to get a biopsy every year. Acid can cause extensive damage and I feel like taking the medicine is a better gamble for me. I don't like having to take any medication, but I couldn't find any natural alternative that helped.

      I've been on it for almost a year, and before that I had another med that was just like it and I was taking it since 2009. Since I was so young when I started it, I can't tell you exactly how it's changed me, however I don't have any side effects that I can tell.

      I've been on it for years. When I run out I slowly start getting esophagus spasms. It has really helped me

      Hello. I've been on Dexilant for a decade it's also a ppi just a bit stronger. You could lose bone density over a long period. I take viactiv chews with vitamin D ,K and calcium to ensure I maintain bone health.
