Contain the active ingredient : Ranitidine HCL which is a type of medicine called an H2 receptor antagonist or H2 blocker.
H2 receptors are found on the cells in the stomach lining. A natural body chemical called histamine normally acts on these receptors, causing them to produce stomach acid to help digest food. Ranitidine works by blocking the H2 receptors, which stops the cells from producing excessive stomach acid.
Ranitidine helps relieve indigestion symptoms that are caused by excess stomach acid. It also reduces the backflow of acid into the foodpipe that can cause heartburn symptoms and damage to the foodpipe (oesophagitis).
By reducing the amount of acid in the stomach and duodenum, ranitidine allows peptic ulcers to heal. It can also help stop an ulcer developing if you're taking a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as diclofenac.
What is it used for?
Treating peptic ulcers and preventing recurrent bleeding from peptic ulcers.
