I have been taking Protonix for a little longer than 1 month; 2 40mg tablets a day. Before this I never had a case of anxiety/panic attacks. After taking the Protonix for 2-3 weeks I have been having severe anxiety, to the point where if I feel any abnormality in my body, I think I have some kind of disease.
I have been off the PPIs for about 3 days and have not noticed a huge difference.
So has anyone had an increase in anxiety after taking a PPI? If anyone has experienced this, please let me know, thanks!
Protonix can cause anxiety and it has been reported by many who take that medication.
If it persists and is troublesome, the medication has to be discontinued.
