In brief: In general or in you
Axid & Zantac (ranitidine) are 2 of many h2 blockers used to treat heartburn.
As such, the manufacturer of Axid will tell you that Axid is better than zanac while the manufacturer of Zantac (ranitidine) will tell you differently (of course!). In large groups of patients, both are equally effective since they both work in same fashion. However, you may like one more than other (think of chevy vs dodge vs ford).
