Nizatidine > 6 Weeks: Nizatidine is generally safe to take for longer than 6 weeks. But, if you need to take it for 6 weeks or longer, your symptoms probably indicate that you should be under a doctor's care. If you're not, check in with your doctor. You can have an occasional drink, but alcohol will make your GI symptoms worse which is counter productive as to why you're taking the nizatidine.
