How This Drug Works
Antihistamines, H2
H2-blockers are antihistamines that relieve stomach indigestion by preventing histamine from stimulating H2 receptors and reducing the amount of acid in the stomach.
"Histamine H2&#45;receptor antagonists, also known as H2&#45;blockers, are drugs that relieve stomach indigestion. <br><br> Histamine aids in digestion and is triggered when food enters the digestive tract. When histamine activates H2 receptors, acidic juices are made that break down food in the stomach.<br><br> Preventing histamine from stimulating H2 receptors reduces acidic juice made in the stomach to relieve and&#47;or prevent heartburn, acid indigestion, and sour stomach.
