Comment:
I have been using Protonix for the past 18 months and it has been very effective. Used Zantac for many years but didn't work anymore. Had terrible burning in mouth and esophagus. Lost 35 lbs and couldn't eat! This drug saved my life!Only side effect occasional gas and bloating. I'm concerned about long term use side effects.Take 40 mgs 1x a day.
