I had no idea of those potential side effects to Pantoprazole. That drug has been a miracle worker for me. Nothing else I’ve ever taken has dealt with my GERD like it.
Considering I already have an autoimmune disorder, this is disheartening. The last thing I need is to add lupus or worse to what I already have going on.
I feel you on the waking in the middle of the night. That shit SUCKS.
I wish you the best no matter what you decide. I can tell you, feeling better makes all the difference in the world.
