Separate problems: GERD and gall bladder disease are different. You need to take zantac (ranitidine) for GERD. Gall bladder disease gives rise to digestive problems and it needs to be treated separately. If zantac (ranitidine) doesn't work for your reflux you may need more powerful drugs such as PPIsSee 1 more doctor answer
Which is generally more effective? Pepcid or zantac (ranitidine). I heard zantac (ranitidine) you can build tolerance unlike pepcid. Is this true?
Equivalent: ranitidine (Zantac) and famotidine (Pepcid) work very well for mild to moderate reflux and can be taken for up to 6 weeks before either starts to lose effect. Now for most people, 6 weeks is enough to allow the stomach to heal, and ongoing use is not needed. For those who require longer use of a daily reflux medication, omeprazole (Prilosec) or pantoprazole (Protonix) don't lose efficacy.

July 2016-Nissen performed for bile reflux. Still suffer nighttime reflux. Is I try Zantac at night is it even effective, or is a ppi better?
Had nissen in July of 16. Still hear gurgling up after swallowing at night in bed. Symptoms during day 0. Take Zantac only at night (effective enough) or a poi during day as well? Is Zantac alone effective. I suffer from bile reflux.
Of course by why?: Zantac (ranitidine) when therapeutically dosed is 150-300mg twice daily. Over time, patients may develop tolerance to the drug but further dosing is unwarranted. If you have dyspeptic symptoms refractory to zantac, or your symptoms progress, don't exceed the recommended dose but get evaluated.

Twice daily: Is the maximum dose, either scheduled or as needed.
