Zantac Medication for Acid Reflux

Zantac® (ranitidine hydrochloride) is a drug licensed to treat various conditions affecting the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. Many people use Zantac medication for acid reflux, but the product is also approved for the treatment of ulcers and pathological hypersecretory conditions. An over-the-counter version is approved to treat indigestion, heartburn, and sour stomach.
Zantac comes in several different forms, including tablets, EFFERdose® tablets (which are dissolved in water), and a syrup. It is typically taken by mouth one to four times a day, depending on the particular condition being treated.
Before taking any Zantac medication for acid reflux, you should talk to your healthcare provider if you have liver or kidney disease, phenylketonuria, or acute porphyria. It is also important to let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as the full risks of using Zantac during pregnancy (or while breastfeeding) are not currently known.
