Ranitidine/gas: Tell your doctor, he may want to switch to a PPI like prilosec or prevecid. The effects you are feeling are related to reflux/ gastritis for which ranitidine should work but everyone is different. maalox helps occasionally but has magnesium so can't take too much and for significant pain need a PPI or rantidine H2 blocker. Alos check for H pylori
