A description of the experience

Ranitidine  - trade name Zantac

Ranitide is a a histamine H2-receptor antagonist that inhibits stomach acid production. It is commonly used in treatment of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The drug not only increases gastric pH, but also reduces the total output of gastric juice. Ranitidine used to be administered long term for reflux treatment, sometimes indefinitely. It has since largely been superseded by proton pump inhibitors. It was introduced in 1981 and was the world's biggest-selling prescription drug by 1988. Ranitidine is also known to give false positives for methamphetamine on drug tests.

Ranitidine is used alongside fexofenadine and other antihistamines for the treatment of skin conditions such as hives. Certain preparations of ranitidine are available over the counter (OTC) in some countries. Outside the United States and Canada, ranitidine is combined with bismuth (which acts as a mild antibiotic) as a citrate salt (ranitidine bismuth citrate, Tritec), to treat Helicobacter pylori infections. This combination is usually given with clarithromycin, an antibiotic.
