What is Anesteloc?

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

What does Anesteloc 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.

When should I use Anesteloc?

The preparation is indicated in adults and adolescents from 12 years of age:
· In reflux oesophagitis.
The preparation is indicated in adults:
· For eradicationHelicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in combination with appropriate antibiotics in patients with peptic ulcer diseaseH. pylori
· In peptic ulcer of the stomach and / or duodenum
· In Zollinger-Ellison syndrome and other conditions associated with excessive secretion of hydrochloric acid.

When not to use this preparation?

Unfortunately, even if there are indications to use the preparation, it can not always be used. You can not use the product if you are allergic (you are hypersensitive) to any of the ingredients or other benzimidazole-based medicines or to peanut or soya.

Take special care with Anesteloc?

Certain diseases and other circumstances may constitute a contraindication to use or indication to change the dosage of the preparation. In some situations it may be necessary to carry out specific check-ups.
Before starting treatment, the cancerous nature of the disease should be ruled out. The use of the preparation may mask the symptoms of cancer, including stomach cancer and delay the proper diagnosis. You should consult your doctor immediately if you have changed the nature of the symptoms or have disturbing symptoms, such as significant weight loss, recurrent vomiting, dysphagia, bloody vomiting, anemia, tar-like stools and if stomach ulceration is suspected or suspected.
If the symptoms persist despite the use of the preparation, a doctor should be consulted who may recommend further diagnostic tests.
If the treatment is long-lasting, especially if it lasts for more than a year, you should be under careful medical supervision.
If the doctor prescribes long-term use of the preparation, liver function should be monitored regularly, especially in patients with severe hepatic impairment. If there is an increase in liver enzymes, a doctor should be consulted because it is usually required to discontinue the preparation.
Parallel administration of the preparation with atazanavir is not recommended. However, if your doctor considers such combination treatment to be necessary, you must remain under careful medical supervision. Your doctor may recommend increasing the dose of antiviral medicines. Do not take a dose of pantoprazole greater than 20 mg per day.
Pantoprazole, like other drugs that reduce the secretion of hydrochloric acid, especially when used for a long time, may reduce the absorption of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) and lead to clinical symptoms of its deficiency. Particular caution and regular check-ups are recommended in people who are deficient in vitamin B12 or with risk factors for its malabsorption.
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 asSalmonellaandCampylobacter.
If the preparation is used for at least 3 months or more, periodic monitoring of the Magnesium concentration in blood is recommended. During long-term treatment, magnesium deficiency and severe hypomagnesaemia may occur. It may occur with symptoms such as fatigue, tetany, delirium, convulsions, dizziness and irregular heart rhythm, but sometimes these symptoms may remain latent. In case of hypomagnesaemia, it is necessary to supplement magnesium deficiency, and sometimes to discontinue using proton pump inhibitors. Using the product in parallel with some medicines (such as Digoxin or diuretics) may further increase the risk of hypomagnesaemia; in this case, regular monitoring of the magnesium concentration in the blood is recommended.
Long-term use (more than a year) and / or high doses of pantoprazole or other proton pump inhibitors may be associated with an increased risk of bone fractures, especially in the elderly or with other risk factors. Patients at risk of osteoporosis should consult a physician and explain how to provide adequate supply of vitamin D and Calcium .
Additional information about the other ingredients of the preparation:
· The product contains soya lecithin; Do not use in patients with hypersensitivity to peanut or soya.

Can I use other preparations in parallel?

Tell your doctor about all medicines you have recently taken, including those that are over the counter.
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) or erlotinib.
The parallel use of the preparation with atazanavir is not recommended. The preparation may significantly reduce the bioavailability and efficacy of atazanavir and other medicines used to treat HIV infection, the absorption of which depends on pH.
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.
Pantoprazole is metabolised in the liver with the cytochrome P450 enzyme system. To date, there has been no clinically significant interaction of pantoprazole with drugs that are metabolised by cytochrome P450.
There was no interaction of pantoprazole with antacids or with antibiotics such as Clarithromycin , Amoxicillin or Metronidazole .

What side effects can occur?

Like all medicines, Anesteloc 40 mg may cause side effects, although they will not occur in all patients who use this medicine. Remember that the expected benefits of using the drug are usually greater than the damage resulting from the occurrence of side effects.
