My Rheumatologist prescribed pantoprazole (Protonix) so I could take the NSAID meloxicam (Mobic) for arthritis pain without causing stomach/gastro ulcers or bleeding. BUT, the pantopazole causes my eyelids to swell. I decided to give it a third try, and had the same reaction as well as now having my feet and lower legs swell. So I've stopped. (I took them for about 4 or 5 days; if I'd taken more, would the swelling stop?)
My son takes Nexium for his stomach issues and swears by it.
Does anyone have ANY insight into my problem or these two drugs (pantoprazole vs Mobic)?
