    Pan-D Uses:

  • In Gastroesophageal reflux disease:
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a chronic condition that causes heartburn on a regular basis rather than just occasionally. It occurs when a muscle above your stomach relaxes too much, allowing stomach contents to reflux into your esophagus and mouth. Pan-D Capsule PR reduces stomach acid production and relieves the pain associated with heartburn and acid reflux.
  • In the case of peptic ulcer disease:
  • Peptic ulcer disease is a condition in which painful sores or ulcers develop in the stomach or gut lining (intestine). Pan-D Capsule PR lowers the amount of acid produced by your stomach, preventing further damage to the ulcer as it heals naturally. Depending on what caused the ulcer, you may be given additional medications in addition to this one. Even if the symptoms seem to go away, you must continue to take the medication as directed for it to be effective.
