    I've been having excessive intestinal gas lately. I'm due to see a GI doctor next month for what I think maybe some like gastristis or acid reflux.

    I'm currently taking protonix which I read also has side effects of gas and abdominal pain (which is always constant but mildly). This is the second PPI i've taken since late October, first was prevaid which has the same side effects.

    I beleive I screwed up on my H. Plyori test (negative) for taking tums days before the test, which i was told I could. Has anyone experienced similar?

    You are correct that one of the side effects of pantoprozole (Protonix) is gas and abdominal pain.

    In addition, keep a food diary to see if there are any foods that tend to worsen this gas.
