Definitely NOT effective for my reflux at all. I have been on this medication for a long time and my symptoms are getting so much worse.

I am going to be asking doc for a major switch to something else!

Comment:
I did very well on Protonix. I was switched to pantopropozole and my condition got steadily worse. I had an endoscopy to look for cancer. They found some signs of Barretts Esophagus. I thought sure that I was in big trouble. After doing an internet search, I came upon these reviews and insisted the doctor switch me back to Protonix.
