Zantac 150

raNITIdine
Ranitidine is a histamine-2 blocker that reduces acid in the stomach. Ranitidine has been used to treat conditions in which the stomach produces too much acid or conditions in which acid backs up from the stomach into the esophagus, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Ranitidine has also been used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines. A cancer-causing impurity found in many ranitidine medications may increase to unacceptable levels over time and when ranitidine is stored at high temperatures. As a result, the FDA has asked all makers of ranitidine to withdraw this medicine from the market in the United States. Ranitidine may also have been used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
