I ran out of my prescription and my doctor is getting approval from my insurance company to renew my prescription of Pantoprazole 40 mg. I am almost 60 years old and female. I have chest burning, a feeling like the gland from my throat to my ears is swollen because the gland is sore when I swallow. I am tired also. I have had hiccups twice today and I feel like I have a lump in my throat. I also had a little bit of diarrhea. How serious are these symptoms ? Should I not take this drug anymore ? Last time my prescription ran out, the symptoms occurred for several weeks then gradually stopped but I received my medication and began taking this again. My doctor retired so the PA is the person who is renewing my prescription.

- Sleep paralysis while on medrol and norco
On my 5th day of my dose pack about an hour after taking medrol and a norco I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. This is the 3rd dose pack in 2 months and I just switched back to norco from Ultram the same day I started the latest dose pack. I felt unusually sleepy before taking my bedtime dose, but felt awake shortly after taking it. My sleep habits have been fluctuating due to sciatic pain which is why I am prescribed this medication.
