Can you overdose on zantacs (ranitidine) after 4 hours of no side effects?

Overdosing: I am always worried about questions like this from teenagers. I am worried because there seems to be a time when teens feel like harming themselves. If you are feeling suicidal please ask for help. If you cannot approach your parents then please get to an adult you trust. Your pediatrician may be a good choice. But, to the question, no this medication cannot cause over dose.
