Medicine For Ulcers?
Good afternoon doctor. I want to ask why ranitidine if there are antacids taken after eating? It’s normal if there are no antacids taken before eating. Thank you😊
Ranitidine is a drug that can be used in the management of symptoms and diseases related to excess stomach acid production in the stomach. Ranitidine works by inhibiting the release of excess stomach acid, so it is hoped that the pain in the stomach and wounds in the stomach lining can slowly heal. In addition to treatment, ranitidine can also be used to prevent symptoms of digestive disorders that occur as a result of eating certain types of food. In general, ranitidine can be consumed both before and after meals, and try to take it at the same time every day. In addition, some of these things can be done to help reduce symptoms of acid reflux such as:
Consume small portions of food but more often Avoid fatty, sour, spicy and chocolate foods. Avoid coffee and alcoholic drinks. Avoid smoking. Avoid / reduce stress. In proper handling, you are advised to consult a doctor. The doctor will conduct a physical examination, a medical interview, and if necessary, a supporting examination will be carried out. In using the drug, it is also recommended to follow the doctor's instructions.
