Entyviio Protonix?

Is Entyvio sometimes called Protonix? I just talked to my doctor's office and they used Entyvio and Protonix together when they talked to me. I have not started Entyvio yet.
Protonix is a med like nexium so completely different from entyvio. Maybe they were saying that along with entyvio they'd like you on protonix as well? I'd call back for clarification.
Protonix is another name for Pantoprazole which I have. My doctor's office needs to pre-authorization both Entyvio and Protonix. I don't know why the lady didn't say Entyvio and Protonix instead of Entyvio Protonix.
