  • Protonix 40MG (Pantoprazole)

    Is Protonix 40MG (Pantoprazole) safe to take once daily while nursing my six month old?

    Dear beantown347,

    Pantoprazole (Protonix) is a proton-pump inhibitor similar to omeprazole (Prilosec). Levels in milk were very low and were undetectable after 4 hours. Pantoprazole is unstable at pH less than 4.0. Virtually none would be absorbed so appears to be compatible with breastfeeding. Observe your infant for diarrhea although not likely.
