Can Ranitidine And Other Ulcer Drugs Be Taken Together?
I want to ask Ranitidine and Promag, can I take them together or not?
Hello Tiara, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Ranitidine is a drug with histamine H-2 inhibitors which functions to reduce the production of stomach acid. Ranitidine will help treat symptoms or diseases related to the production of excess acid in the stomach. Promag is a drug with active ingredients as antacids such as magnesium hydroxide, hydrotalcite, and calcium carbonate which functions to neutralize stomach acid.
The use of ranitidine and antacids can generally be used together and function to relieve the symptoms of heartburn or stomach acid disease more optimally.
The use of ranitidine should be in accordance with your doctor's recommendations because it is included in the category of hard drugs or prescription drugs. You should be advised to consult with your doctor about complaints that you feel so that given treatment options according to your complaints.
Although it tends to be safe, but you need to also know some side effects from ranitidine and antacids, including:
Diarrhea or constipation
Nausea and vomiting
Drug allergies (rash on the body, shortness of breath, swelling of the face, loss of consciousness)
Hopefully this information can be useful for you.
