Don't remember having a problem with indigestion when I was started on three 100 mg a day. Now taking one 300 mg a day and experiencing problems with indigestion -- so much so that I may ask to be put back on the 100 mg. dose.
I took Protonix for 7 days and I had the worse anxiety and emotional distress. I thought something was triggering me because I have severe PTSD. I stopped taking it on the 8th day and things are starting to get better for me.
