Zantac OTC

Zantac® (ranitidine hydrochloride) is a prescription medication often used for the treatment of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastric and duodenal ulcers, pathological hypersecretory conditions, and erosive esophagitis. There is also a Zantac OTC (over-the-counter) product available for treating heartburn, indigestion, and sour stomach.
 
Prescription Zantac comes in the form of tablets, EFFERdose® tablets (which are dissolved in water), and a syrup. Zantac OTC is sold under the names Zantac 75 Acid Reducer and Maximum Strength Zantac 150 Acid Reducer.
 
The medicine is a type of H2 blocker that works by blocking histamine in the stomach. This action helps to decrease the amount of acid the stomach produces (in the stomach, histamine causes more acid to be produced).
