Acid reflux
I am talking pantaprozole for last 5 years, if I don't take I get spasm due to acid reflux by the evening. Last month I started intermittent fasting in which I don't have to take any food for 16 hours ( 9pm to 1pm) In this situation I feel esophageal spasm which subsides only for 30 min. with antacid, so I am taking now pantaprozole in the evening also. Can I do this for couples of months or you would advise some thing else.

I would advice take low dose pantoorazole everyday as you would do. You do not need to do 16 hours fasting as that would trigger hypoglycaemia and dehydration and trigger spasms.
