Hi and thanks for the query.
If you have had hoarseness for this long along with a cough then I would recommend that you see an ENT specialist as soon as possible, an indirect laryngoscopy can be done at the office without any discomfort and this will give information on vocal cords and the larynx.
I would also suggest that along with the pantoprazole, you observe dietary modification, avoid spicy, salted, smoked and salted foods especially at dinner time.
Also, sleep with a head up tilt of about 30-45 degrees at night - a wedge pillow can help.
