Common Side Effects of Pantoprazole Sodium
Pantoprazole may increase the risk of broken bones in your spine, wrist, or hip. The risk is higher if you are older than age 50, use pantoprazole for more than a year, or take high doses of pantoprazole. Talk with your doctor if you are at risk of broken bones.

Pantoprazole may cause low levels of magnesium in the blood. The risk is higher if you take pantoprazole for more than a year or if you are taking it with digoxin (Lanoxin®) or certain "water pills." Signs that your magnesium levels may be low include:
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Fast, racing, or uneven heartbeat
  • Muscle rigidness, spasms, or tremors
A serious but rare side effect of pantoprazole is a severe intestinal condition caused by bacteria called Clostridium difficile. Call your doctor right away if you have:
  • Severe or persistent diarrhea
  • Abdominal or stomach pain or cramping
  • Fever
  • Blood or mucus in your stool
Do not treat yourself with over-the-counter antidiarrhea products. If you have diarrhea while taking pantoprazole, contact your doctor for help.

While rare, pantoprazole may cause an allergic reaction. Signs of an allergic reaction include:
  • Rash
  • Itching or swelling of the face, tongue, or throat
  • Trouble breathing
  • Severe dizziness
Get medical help right away, or call 911 if an emergency, if you believe you are having an allergic reaction to pantoprazole.

Contact your doctor if you have any side effect that gets worse, worries you, or will not go away while taking pantoprazole.
