Overview Information on Ranitidine Hydrochloride
Pharmacist Tip
If you take regular tablets, swallow them whole with a full glass of water.     
Ranitidine is a medicine that belongs to a group of medicines called H2-receptor antagonists.

Ranitidine is used to treat heartburn and acid indigestion. Your doctor may want you to take ranitidine to lower the amount of acid in your stomach. Too much acid in your stomach can cause ulcers and heartburn that comes from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Ranitidine is also given to people whose stomachs make very high levels of acid, such as people with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
