    Yes! Had my first experience with counterfeit pantoprazole. Taking it for 10 years, suddenly a refilled prescription had no effect and I spent 2 days in misery. Returned it and asked for brand name.

    Where do I complain? I’m a Canadian.

    I have taken pantoprazole, Metoprolo ER, Isosorbide, Synthroid for a few years. I have difficulty swallowing, even sips of water occasionally get “stuck” in my throat/windpipe and caused me to lose consciousness on two occasions. Could this be caused by any of these medications and has anyone else ever experienced this reaction? I have a nearly non-functioning vocal cord and lose my voice every day. I also cough a lot.

    Generic para pantoprazole does not work for me, anyone have a similar experience?
