INDICATIONS:

  • Gastric & duodenal ulceration
  • Reflux oesophagitis

DESCRIPTION :
Ulcerex (Ranitidine) is a potent long acting histamine H2 receptor antagonist for the treatment of duodenal and gastric ulcer. It inhibits basal and stimulated secretion of gastric acid, reducing both the volume & the acid and pepsin content of the secretion. Ranitidine has relatively larger duration of action & so a single 150 mg dose effectively suppresses gastric acid secretion for 12 hours.

CONTRA-INDICATIONS :
Hypersensitivity to preparation.

SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS :
Ulcerex must not be used in case of gastric malignancy, pregnancy
and lactation. A dose reduction is necessary in case of impaired renal and hepatic function.

150 mg twice daily or 300 mg daily for 4-8 weeks. Zollinger Ellison Syndrome, 600 – 900 mg daily in divided doses
