Yes: Ranitidine is the chemical or generic name for Zantac a commercial product. In the usa most all generics are considered highly rated and generally speaking generic ranitidine "should" work equal to branded Zantac for acid reflux. Note Famotidine is generic for Pepcid (famotidine) and Omeprazole for prilosec. Omeprazole is a more potent acid reducing medication, but for acid reflux not always better. ...Read more
Drug interaction: Zantac can increase the drug levels of lipitor (atorvastatin). Taking them apart will not help. It is better to ask your doctor what to take for heartburn while you are on the lipitor (atorvastatin). It is better to avoid zantac while on lipitor (atorvastatin) unless you are only taking it occasionally. ...Read more
No: Zantac is a medication for reduction of stomach acid similar to Pepcid ac and tagament. I am guess you mean xanax (alprazolam). Xanax (alprazolam) will sedate you some and make you more relaxed, but it really isn't a pain medication. Luckily most cervical biopsies are tolerated without any pain medication. ...Read more

I took a 40mg prilosec, prescribed, can I take a zantac (ranitidine)? I just started the script and I need instant relief
Not best choice: If you need instant relief you need to take something that will directly neutralize the stomach acidity, such as TUMS, (calcium carbonate) Rolaids, Mylanta etc. Prilosec (a PPI) and Zantac (H2 blocker) both act to cause the stomach to make less acid, but they don't immediately neutralize the acid already there. **PPI's like Prilosec can be "addicting" see:. http://bit.

I have acid reflux. If necessary and I'm having a bad episode is it OK to take 3 maximum strength zantacs (ranitidine) within 24 hrs?
No: Take the recommended dose. But you can use mylanta, maalox or Tums in between. (Don't take an antacid within 30 minutes before or within 1 hour after the Zantac, (ranitidine) because it affects absorption.) Avoid spicy, greasy, acidy foods while you are worse. If no better with this in 1-2 days call your doc. If increasing pain, vomiting, fever, etc., it could be something more serious:go to the ER or call MD ...Read more

You may take an additional Prilosec at bedtime, or see your doctor for a rx strength
medication. An antacid as an additional

Was given 300 of Zantac (ranitidine) to take/was told 600 too much because of plavix which I take 75 of....How long can I take zantac (ranitidine)?
How long does it take to cure antral gastritis usually? Taking 300mg Zantac (ranitidine) and 40mg pantoloc for a week, symptoms still sticking around.
I got off nexuim for 3 days to see how I do I burning now I will get back on it. I just took one but can't wait 24 hours can I take a Zantac (ranitidine) now?
Okay together: There are no known interactions between Nexium (esomeprazole) and Zantac. In fact, when symptoms are not fully resolved with Nexium (esomeprazole) alone, patient's are often instructed to take Nexium (esomeprazole) in the morning and Zantac later in the day. I see no reason why you can't take Zantac temporarily, until the Nexium (esomeprazole) kicks back in. If the burning persists despite both medications, see your family doctor. ...Read more
I have persistent chest pain than has lasted over the last few weeks. Nurse recommended I take Zantac (ranitidine) to stabilize it, but not sure it's helping.
Takes time: If you have a burned esophagus (as it sounds), the Zantac (ranitidine) prevents further injury but healing progresses slowly, just like if you burned your hand. You might want to discuss with your nurse if the maximum dose of Zantac (ranitidine) might not be reasonable? (150 mg twice a day). ...Read more
