Zantac Medicine for GERD

Zantac® (ranitidine hydrochloride) is a prescription drug licensed to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), erosive esophagitis, certain types of ulcers, and pathological hypersecretory conditions. An over-the-counter version is also available for the treatment of indigestion, heartburn, and sour stomach.
Healthcare providers may recommend Zantac medicine for GERD in children and babies as young as one month old. Non-prescription Zantac should not be given to young children.
Zantac works by blocking histamine in the stomach. This action helps to reduce the amount of acid the stomach produces, which can help relieve symptoms of GERD and other conditions related to the esophagus, stomach, and intestines.
