When our son was 11, he had warts on his hands. He took tagamet (cimetidine) orally and this took care of it?
Tagamet (cimetidine) & warts. There are anecdotal reports of tagamet (cimetidine) eliminating warts. It is known to stimulate t-lymphocytes, which help control viral infections. One small trial in children found tagamet (cimetidine) as effective as the usual topical agents or cryotherapy. But in a more recent double-blind study, it was not found to be significantly more effective than placebo in adults or children. More research needed.
