Tecta How to Take

Tecta (Pantoprazole) magnesium belongs to the family of medications called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Proton pump inhibitors are used to treat conditions where a reduction in stomach acid is needed, such as stomach ulcers, duodenal (intestinal) ulcers, reflux esophagitis (a severe form of heartburn), and symptoms of GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) (GERD; e.g., heartburn and acid regurgitation). Tecta (Pantoprazole) is also sometimes used along with antibiotics to treat duodenal ulcers that are caused by bacteria known as H. pylori.

Tecta (Pantoprazole) works to reduce the amount of acid the stomach produces by blocking the action of an enzyme (proton pump) that produces acid in the stomach.

Tecta (Pantoprazole) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Tecta (Pantoprazole) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Tecta (Pantoprazole) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Tecta (Pantoprazole) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Tecta (Pantoprazole), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Tecta (Pantoprazole) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Tecta (Pantoprazole) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Tecta (Pantoprazole) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Tecta Precautions

There may be an interaction between Tecta (Pantoprazole) magnesium and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Tecta (Pantoprazole). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Tecta Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Tecta (Pantoprazole).

If you experience severe, watery or bloody diarrhea; fever; or abdominal pain while taking Tecta (Pantoprazole), contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Electrolyte balance: Long term use of Tecta (Pantoprazole) may cause the levels of electrolytes such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium in the blood to decrease. If you experience symptoms of fluid and electrolyte imbalance such as muscle pains or cramps; Dry Mouth; numb hands, feet, or lips; or racing heartbeat, contact your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor may do blood tests periodically to monitor the levels of these electrolytes in your blood while you are taking Tecta (Pantoprazole).

Kidney function: The kidneys are responsible for removing Tecta (Pantoprazole) magnesium from the body. If you have reduced kidney function or Kidney Disease, discuss with your doctor how Tecta (Pantoprazole) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Tecta (Pantoprazole), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: If you have severe liver disease, discuss with your doctor how Tecta (Pantoprazole) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Tecta (Pantoprazole), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms of liver problems such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

Methotrexate interaction: Tecta (Pantoprazole) magnesium, like other medications in this group, may interact with methotrexate when the two medications are used at the same time. This combination may lead to higher than expected amounts of methotrexate in the body and can cause serious side effects, including kidney damage, irregular heartbeat, Anemia, or infection. If you take Tecta (Pantoprazole) and are also going to receive a dose of methotrexate, discuss with your doctor how Tecta (Pantoprazole) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Tecta (Pantoprazole), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Osteoporosis fractures: Long-term use of Tecta (Pantoprazole) may be related to an increased risk of bone fractures in the hip, wrist, or spine, as a result of weakened bones.
