Up unti recently I was receiving a generic Pantoprazole imprinted "protonix' That changed to P 40 by Wyeth Lederle. It was my understanding that Wyeth was part of Pfitzer.
What company makes both the brand name Protonix and the Generic Pantoprazole both imprinted the sam?

Yes they are both made by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals Company, a subsidiary of Pfizer Inc.
When the patent expires on a drug the same company can also market the generic so as to cash in on both aspects of the market. Sometimes they market them with a different imprint as in your case, and sometimes they maket them with the same imprint.
