I have taken 150mg zantac twice a day for 7 days to reduce the acid in my stomach, as prescribed. Does it cause withdrawal symptoms?

Routinely going through medicine cabinets to remove old and expired drugs is also always a good idea. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Antiacid stomach med: Zantac (ranitidine) is a histamine-2 (h2 blocker) which blocks acid secretion in the stomach. It can be used for esophageal reflux (gerd) or other general hi acid states.

Interestingly, since zantac is a histamine blocker it can also be used for 'allergy' or hives. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
