Sadržaj pakiranja i druge informacije

1.

Što je PANTECTA Control i za što se koristi

PANTECTA Control sadrži djelatnu tvar pantoprazol, koja blokira „pumpu“ koja proizvodi želučanu

kiselinu. Stoga smanjuje sadržaj kiseline u Vašem želucu.

PANTECTA Control se koristi za kratkotrajno liječenje simptoma refluksa (npr. žgaravica, vraćanje

kiseline iz želuca) u odraslih.

Refluks je povrat kiseline iz želuca u jednjak („cijev za hranu”) koji može postati upaljen i bolan. To

može uzrokovati simptome kao što su bolan osjećaj pečenja u prsnom košu koji se uzdiže do grla

(žgaravica) i kiseli okus u ustima (vraćanje kiseline).

Olakšanje simptoma refluksa kiseline ili žgaravice možete osjetiti već nakon jednog dana liječenja s

PANTECTA Control, ali ovaj lijek nije namijenjen trenutnom olakšanju simptoma. Možda će biti

potrebno uzimati tablete 2-3 uzastopna dana da bi se postiglo olakšanje simptoma.

Obavezno se morate obratiti liječniku ako se ne osjećate bolje ili ako se osjećate lošije nakon 2 tjedna.

2.

Što morate znati prije nego počnete uzimati PANTECTA Control

Ne uzimajte PANTECTA Control:

ako ste alergični na pantoprazol ili bilo koji sastojak ovog lijeka (navedeno u dijelu 6)

ako uzimate lijekove koji sadrže atazanavir (za liječenje infekcije HIV-om). Pogledajte 'Ostali

lijekovi i PANTECTA Control'.

Upozorenja i mjere opreza

Razgovarajte sa svojim liječnikom prije nego uzmete PANTECTA Control:

ako se liječite protiv žgaravice ili loše probave neprekidno tijekom 4 ili više tjedana

Lijek koji više nije odobren

ako ste stariji od 55 godina i svakodnevno uzimate lijekove za probavne smetnje koji se izdaju

bez recepta

ako ste stariji od 55 godina i imate bilo kakve nove ili nedavno promijenjene simptome refluksa

ako ste imali čir na želucu ili operaciju želuca

ako imate probleme s jetrom ili žuticu (žutilo kože ili očiju)

ako redovno posjećujete liječnika zbog neke ozbiljne bolesti ili stanja

ako ste naručeni na endoskopiju ili C-urea izdisajni test.

Odmah obavijestite svog liječnika, prije ili nakon uzimanja ovog lijeka, ako primijetite neki od

sljedećih simptoma koji može biti znak druge, ozbiljnije bolesti:

nenamjeran gubitak težine (koji nije vezan uz dijetu ili program tjelovježbe)

povraćanje, osobito ako se ponavlja

povraćanje krvi, što možete primijetiti u obliku tamnih zrnaca veličine zrna kave

krv u stolici, koja može biti crna ili poput katrana

teškoće pri gutanju ili bol pri gutanju

bljedoća ili osjećaj slabosti (anemija)

bol u prsnom košu

bol u trbuhu

težak i/ili stalan proljev, jer je ovaj lijek povezan sa malim porastom zaraznog proljeva.

Liječnik će odlučiti jesu li potrebne neke pretrage.

Ukoliko idete na krvne pretrage, obavijestite liječnika da uzimate ovaj lijek.

Možete osjetiti olakšanje od simptoma refluksa kiseline ili žgaravice nakon samo jednog dana

liječenja s PANTECTA Control, ali ovaj lijek nije namijenjen trenutnom olakšanju simptoma. Ne

smijete ga uzimati kao preventivnu mjeru.

Ako duže vrijeme patite od žgaravice ili probavnih smetnji, redovito posjećujte liječnika.

Djeca i adolescenti

PANTECTA Control ne smiju koristiti djeca i mladi u dobi do 18 godina jer ne postoje podaci o

sigurnosti primjene u ovoj mlađoj dobnoj skupini.

Drugi lijekovi i PANTECTA Control

Obavijestite liječnika ili ljekarnika ukoliko koristite, nedavno ste koristili ili biste mogli koristiti bilo

koje druge lijekove. PANTECTA Control može zaustaviti djelovanje nekih drugih lijekova. Naročito

lijekova koji sadrže sljedeće djelatne tvari:

atazanavir (koristi se za liječenje HIV-infekcije). Ne smijete koristiti PANTECTA Control ako

uzimate atazanavir. Pogledajte 'Ne uzimajte PANTECTA Control'.

ketokonazol (koristi se za gljivične infekcije)

varfarin i fenprokumon (koristi se za razrjeđivanje krvi i sprječavanje ugrušaka). Možda su

potrebne dodatne krvne pretrage.

metotreksat (koristi se za liječenje reumatoidnog artritisa, psorijaze ili raka) – ako uzimate

metotreksat liječnik će možda preporučiti da privremeno prekinete uzimati PANTECTA

Control jer pantoprazol može povisiti razine metotreksata u krvi.

Ne uzimajte PANTECTA Control s drugim lijekovima koji ograničavaju količinu proizvodnje

želučane kiseline, kao što su drugi inhibitor protonske pumpe (omeprazol, lanzoprazol ili rabeprazol)

ili H

antagonist (npr. ranitidin, famotidin).

Ako je potrebno, PANTECTA Control možete uzimati s antacidima (npr. megaldrat, alginatna

kiselina, natrijev bikarbonat, aluminijev hidroksid, magnezijev karbonat ili kombinacije navedenih).

Trudnoća i dojenje

Ne uzimajte ovaj lijek ako ste trudni ili dojite.

Ako ste trudni ili dojite, mislite da biste mogli biti trudni ili planirate imati dijete, obratite se svom

liječniku ili ljekarniku za savjet prije nego uzmete ovaj lijek.
