What is Anesteloc Max?

A drug that inhibits the secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, containing a proton pump inhibitor.

What does Anesteloc Max contain and how does it work?

The active substance of the preparation is Pantoprazole , a benzimidazole derivative, a drug from the group of proton pump inhibitors (this group of drugs is sometimes indicated by the abbreviation IPP). This substance blocks the enzyme - a proton pump (ATP-aza K + / H +) in the Pariet al cells of the gastric mucosa, thereby inhibiting the secretion of hydrochloric acid by these cells. In this way, the acidity (pH increases) of the gastric juice decreases. The degree of inhibition depends on the dose and applies to both basal and stimulated secretion of hydrochloric acid. In addition, the gastrin secretion is increased to a degree proportional to the reduction in the acidity of the gastric juice.
Pantoprazole is rapidly absorbed after oral administration, the maximum concentration in the blood is obtained approximately 2.5 hours after administration. The meal does not affect the maximum concentration or the bioavailability of the drug, it can only delay the onset of action. After 2 weeks of treatment with pantoprazole, the symptom relief is achieved in the majority of patients. Pantoprazole is mainly metabolised in the liver with the cytochrome P450 enzyme system, most metabolites excreted in the urine, partly also in the bile. Pantoprazole passes through the placenta and into the breast milk of women.

During the period of application, other medicines from the group of proton pump inhibitors or drugs that reduce the secretion of hydrochloric acid in gastric acid from histamine type 2 (H2) receptor antagonists should not be taken in parallel.

The preparation does not cause immediate relief of symptoms. Usually, after about the day of use, the improvement is felt and the full relief of symptoms may require the preparation for 7 days. The preparation should not be used preventively.
The use of proton pump inhibitors may be associated with an increase in the number of naturally occurring bacteria in the upper gastrointestinal tract, as well as a slight increase in the risk of gastrointestinal infections by bacteria, such asSalmonella, Campylobacteror C. difficile.

Pantoprazole reduces the secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach and thus reduces the acidity (increases the pH) of gastric juice. Therefore, pantoprazole may reduce the absorption of certain drugs, such as, for example, antifungal azole (ketoconazole, Itraconazole , posaconazole), erlotinib.
It must not be used with atazanavir.
In parallel use of the preparation with anticoagulants, coumarin derivatives (warfarin, phenprocoumon), prothrombin time and INR are recommended at the beginning of treatment, after completion and if irregular use of pantoprazole.
