Its possible that he could also be depressed as he sleeps all day going to bed around 2-3 AM. Tom has a Viterion 100 Telehealth Monitor that he hooks up to for weight/bp info daily and his bp is always where it shld be. He was diagnosed with pnuemonia in Feb, congestive heart failure shortly after that and this is the medicine that seemed to help except for the dizziness. Any solutions??

Hey McKinney III,
Pantoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor for acid reflux. The dizziness is not a common side effect. Tiredness and vision changes (could this be what he is experiencing as dizziness?) are serious side effects and should be reported to the doctor. If he is going to bed at 2 to 3 am and sleeping during the day consequently, it is hard to say if he is actually tired from the medicine or just has his sleep schedule off. You mentioned depression as well, and sleeping too much is definitely a symptom among others. I would consult the doctor about all these symptoms. His dizziness maybe from something else going on.
There are other proton pump inhibitors to try, if in fact the pantoprazole is the culprit. Again, a discussion with the doc might be a good idea.
