Diarrhea is a common side effect of Protonix whether you have gastrectomy or not.

Protonix is in a group of drugs called proton pump inhibitors. It decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach.

Protonix is used to treat erosive esophagitis (damage to the esophagus from stomach acid), and other conditions involving excess stomach acid such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
