A:

Pantoprazole is generally safe for long-term use under a doctor’s supervision. But there are potential concerns, such as an increased risk of fractures. The best approach is to use the lowest pantoprazole dosage for the shortest amount of time necessary. Ongoing use may be appropriate when the benefits outweigh the risks.
