Method of administration:
Injection: Pantoprazole IV injection is obtained by adding 10 ml Sodium Chloride 0.9% injection to the vial containing powder. After reconstitution the injection should be given slowly over a period of at least 2 minutes. The injection should be used within 6 hours of reconstitution when stored at room temperature. Besides the resulting injection should be used within 12 hours when stored at 2-80 C.
Infusion: Pantoprazole IV infusion should be reconstituted with 10 ml of Sodium Chloride 0.9% injection and further diluted with 100 ml Sodium Chloride 0.9% injection or 5% dextrose injection. The reconstituted infusion may be stored for up to 24 hours at room temperature after reconstitution. The reconstituted infusion should be administered intravenously over a period of 15 minutes.
In patients with known hypersensitivity to Pantoprazole Sodium Sesquihydrate or any excipient of the formulation.
Proton pump inhibitors should be used with caution in patients with liver disease, in pregnancy and breast feeding, before treatment the presence of gastric malignancy should be excluded. No problem with Pantoprazole has been encountered in clinical use in elderly patients. No dosage adjustment of Pantoprazole is required in patients with renal impairment but prolongation of metabolism leading to a slight rise in peak plasma levels occurs in hepatic cirrhosis and it is recommended that the dosing is reduced to every other day.
Side effects of the proton pump inhibitors include gastro-intestinal disturbances (including diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting, constipation, flatulence, abdominal pain), headache, hypersensitivity reactions (including rash, urticaria, angioedema, bronchospasm), pruritus, dizziness, peripheral edema, muscle and joint pain, malaise, blurred vision, depression and dry mouth.
Pantoprazole does not react with the cytochrome P-450 system. No drug interaction has been reported in a large series of studies examining reactions with contraceptives, diazepam. diclofenac, ethanol, caffeine, metoprolol, theophylline, digoxin, phenytoin, nifedipine and warfarin.
Use in pregnancy: This drug should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.
Use in lactation: Pantoprazole is likely to be excreted in human milk, a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
Children: There are no data currently available on the use of Pantoprazole in children.
