In brief: Zantac (ranitidine) works 4 GERD

Zantac (ranitidine) was the leading drug in the world when introduced in the early 1980's to treat indigestion.
Conventional prescription doses were 300mg twice daily. The drug is effective in suppressing acid, but when used longterm can promote tolerance (so that larger doses are needed over time to block acid). Current over-the-counter dosing is 75mgs. Take along with behavior & diet aimed at reducing gerd.
