How to use
The drug is used as directed by a doctor and under the proper medical supervision.
Intravenous administration of the drug is recommended only if oral administration is not possible. There are data on the duration of intravenous treatment up to 7 days. Therefore, as soon as oral pantoprazole is available, the transition from intravenous Proxium® to oral pantoprazole 40 mg.
Reflux esophagitis, duodenal ulcer, gastric ulcer.
The recommended dose is 40 mg pantoprazole (1 vial) per day intravenously.
Treatment of Zollinger's and Ellison's syndrome and other hypersecretory pathological conditions.
For long-term treatment of Zollinger-Ellison syndrome and other hypersecretory pathologies, the recommended starting dose of Proxium® is 80 mg per day. If necessary, the dose can be titrated, increasing or decreasing, depending on the indicators of acid secretion in the stomach. Doses in excess of 80 mg per day should be divided into two doses. A temporary increase in pantoprazole dose to more than 160 mg is possible, but the duration of administration should be limited only to the period necessary to adequately control acid secretion.
If rapid acidity reduction is required, for most patients, a starting dose of 2x80 mg is sufficient to achieve the desired level (<10 mEq/h) for 1 hour.
