Why do I need this medicine?
Ranitidine is a gastric medicine.

It is used to treat conditions caused by excessive acidity in your stomach, such as stomach ulcers and reflux disease (also known as "heartburn", in which food or acid from your stomach backs up into your mouth, leaving a sour or bitter taste).

Ranitidine can also be used to relieve stomach irritation and ulceration caused by certain painkillers such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Ranitidine treats these conditions by reducing the amount of acid your stomach makes.

How do I take this medicine?
Take Ranitidine exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

You may need to take Ranitidine for some time before the full benefits can be felt.

Ranitidine tablets may be taken with or without food or at bedtime.

If you have been given the effervescent tablets, dissolve one tablet in a full glass (6-8 ounces) of water before drinking. Do not swallow effervescent tablets without first dissolving them in water as instructed.

Do not take Ranitidine for more than 2 weeks unless directed by your doctor. If your gastric problems persist for more than 2 weeks, consult your doctor.

What should I take note of while taking this medicine?
Alert your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not breastfeed while being treated with Ranitidine.

Alert your doctor if you have kidney or liver disease, porphyria or phenylketonuria.

Do not take Ranitidine for a long period of time unless instructed by your doctor. Let your doctor know if your gastric problem seems to be getting worse or if there is no improvement even with Ranitidine.

Do not give Ranitidine to children unless instructed by the doctor.

What side effects could I experience?
Ranitidine may cause headache, constipation, diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting, stomach pain. These are usually temporary and should go away when Ranitidine is stopped.

Ranitidine may cause dizziness. If you feel dizzy, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.

Let your doctor know if these side effects bother you or if they do not go away.

Less commonly, Ranitidine may cause other side effects. Consult your doctor if you experience unusual problems while being treated with Ranitidine.

Can I take this with other medicines?
Inform your doctor if you are taking any other medicines, especially those listed below:

- warfarin (a blood-thinning medicine)
- ketoconazole, itraconazole (antifungal medicines)
- cefuroxime, cefpodoxime (antibiotics)
- triazolam (mood medicine)

Do not take antacids together with Ranitidine. If you must take antacids, take them at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after you have taken Ranitidine.

Always inform your doctor and pharmacist if you are taking any other medicines, including herbal tonics, supplements and medicines that you buy without a prescription.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?
Avoid alcohol.

How should I store this medicine?
Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.
