Pantoprazole starts to work after 2.5 hours, which is how long it takes to stop the stomach from making acid. It stays effective for 24 hours. Pantoprazole doesn’t work as quickly as antacids like Tums or Maalox to treat indigestion, acid reflux, or dyspepsia symptoms, and it won’t treat the ones you have right now. Pantoprazole might not work right for up to 4 weeks, so you might still have some symptoms during this time.
