Before heartburn, ZANTAC 150 was the miracle drug for ulcers!

***ZANTAC DRUG FACTS***

*Active ingredient (in each tablet):** Ranitidine 150 mg (as ranitidine hydrochloride 168 mg)** Purpose: Acid reducer*

I first took **ZANTAC 150** decades ago when it was prescribed by my doctor for ulcers. Today the focal point of the recently-increased doseage **150 **advertising is **ZANTAC**'s effectiveness in treating heartburn or sour stomach. A 14-day regimen with one pill every 12 hours is suggested. Eventually, as the pill-taking continues, one pill *may* suffice for 24-hour relief.

The best part, of course, is that **ZANTAC **went from prescription to over-the-counter years ago. Among the cautions, however, is your watchfulness and your common sense in ***not*** taking **ZANTAC** in these instances:


- *If you have trouble or pain swallowing food, vomiting with blood or bloody or black stools. These may be a sign of a serious condition. **See your doctor!***

- *With other acid reducers*

- *If you have kidney disease, except under the advice and supervision of a doctor*


As with all drugs, there can be side effects. Mine was ever-worsening diarrhea which pretty much confined me to the house. (There weren't many anti-ulcer alternatives that worked in those days.) You can read in detail on the **ZANTAC** website.

Today, I begin taking **ZANTAC **when I have a lot of tummy pain, and I almost never have to go the 14-day route. (That means no time for my side effect.) I generally feel relief in an hour or so when **ZANTAC**'s H2 blockers have started to work at suppressing stomach acid. In the past I have taken two **ZANTAC 75**s. Now I just do a single **150**.

I appreciate the relief *and *the fact that this old stand-by product is as close as the nearest drugstore.* *

**Extreme Caution! **Severe heartburn can mimic a heart attack. If you have increased pain, sweating, nausea, arm pain and/or difficulty breathing, get thee to an emergency room pronto!****

I have always had bad heart burn and nuthing really seened to help it at all until I tried **Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief.  I have never really been the kind of person that would take medication no matter the issues I was having but i just couldn't deal with the heartburn pain any longer.  One day I was at my girl friends house when i started to have that heartburm feeling and started talking to her about the issues that I have been dealing with, know she knows that I hate to take any kind of medication but told me that I should try **Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief.  So I did and I was hooked, it took the heartburn pain away in anout fifteen(15) to twenty(20) minutes and for me thats a must.  I have used **Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief every time I've had heartburn in the past six(6) months.**  I would recommend this to anyone that has very bad heartburn and nuthing else has worked to take the heartburn away.  ****

heartburt medicine

By 

from USA

Comments about Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief:

Zantac Maximum Strenth is a fast working tablet that helps not only prevent but relieves heartburn. Symptoms of heartburn can be shoulder pain, shortness of breath, chest pain, sweating, etc. You should always see a doctor if these symptoms continue for long periods of time. When I went out to eat at a spicy Mexican food restaurant I knew it was going to end badly so I took a Zantac with me just in case. Now directions on taking the medicine depend on if you are taking for heart burn or to prevent heart burn. If you already have heartburn you will want to swallow one tablet with a eight ounce glass of water. If you are trying to prevent getting heart you will want to take one tablet with a glass of water thirty to sixty minuets before eating or drinking food that may cause you to have the heartburn. I had already had the heartburn so I took the tablet hoping it would work fast. Much to my surprise the achiness in my chest started to ease just after twenty minuets. After taking this tablet I was able to enjoy all different types of food and didn't have to worry about the after effects.

Zantac 150 is one of the best!

By 

from Kuna, ID

Comments about Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief:

I get acid reflux, heartburn and gas quite often. At times, it can be very difficult to find a product that works well. Zantac 150 is one of the best over the counter medicines for relieving these symptoms. It works quickly and effectively. I will typically start to feel relief of symptoms within an hour and the relief is long lasting. This medicine works well for my partner as well between her quarterly doses of Prilosec or Prevacid. It is a product I would definitely reccomend keeping in your medicine cabinet for just such occassions. It is easy to swallow thanks to the small pill size and relatively inexpensive as medicines go. Definitely way better than Tums or Pepto Bismol. It is comparable to Tagamet, although I prefer Zantac more.

Heartburn Relief!

By 

from Everett, MA

Comments about Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief:

I have always had heartburn problems. I've tried just about every over the counter medicine out there. Tums were the only thing that helped, but when I was pregnant with my first child it got so bad that I was eating about 20 Tums a day even though the bottle said not to eat more than 10 a day. I asked my obstetrician if there was something she could prescribe and she told me to try Zantac 150. I figured she was just blowing me off, but I decided to try it anyway. I picked it up at the grocery store and started using it that day. I was AMAZED at how well it worked. It was a miracle. Anybody that has heartburn regularly knows how awful it feels. Not only did it relieve my heartburn all day long but I also started eating some of my favorite foods again. I had to give up greasy foods, sauce, chocolate, cut way back on sugar, and juice. Slowly I added them back into my diet to see how I felt. Even after I had my son I continued to use Zantac 150 because I figure if it ain't broke don't fix it. I'm almost 8 months pregnant with my second child now and still taking Zantac 150. It still works great!

The Pfizer Zantac 150mg tablets maximum strength really works!

By 

from Danville, IL

Comments about Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief:

When I get any type of heartburn or bloating problems after eating I find that just taking one pill takes it all away. My husband and two sisters who have heartburn problems also take this and find that it helps in about 15 min. after taking pill. It also helps when you take it before eating. We love this product.

Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief:

**Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief is not the best medicine to take for heartburn. It is a horrible medicine to be honest. I wouldn't waste my time or money on this medicine what so ever. It is pricey, and just doesn't work flat out. I would much rather have nexium, that is a medicine to USE if you have nonstop heartburn and you suffer with it all the time. The ****
**Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief is something NOT to use. Trust me take something other then this. The only thing really that is good about this is that it is safe to take for pregnancy. So don't buy this, it is a waste of money. Buy nexium or something else. But NOT this medicine.**

Zantac 150 WORKS!!!

By 

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief:

I've tried all the other stuff...it either works right away and heartburn comes back later...or takes forever to work. Zantac 150 works right away! I find the price to be quite reasonable, but if you are watching your budget...the generic of this works just the same.

Best for heartburn, even when Pregnant!

By 

from Stuarts Draft, VA

Comments about Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief:

I have tried many other over the counter heartburn relief medicines and by far the Zantac 150 mg tablets WORK! Tums and Rolaids only temporarily relieve my heartburn symptoms, but the Zantac works very quickly and for a long time. I am currently pregnant and my heartburn is worse during this time and I am still able to take Zantac. It is extremely effective and I have not noticed any side effects. It is a bit more expensive than Tums, but it works better so it is worth it! I like the packaging - I can put one of the pill pop sheets into my purse and not have a bulky bottle (like Tums) in there for when I need it. Overall, it is long lasting, easy to take, works quickly and it is worth the extra money. I have also tried Pepcid with another pregnancy and it worked, but not as well as Zantac. Zantac is readily available at almost all stores I visit on a regular basis, so it is convenient to purchase as well.

Best Product EVER

By 

from Mchenry, IL

Comments about Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief:

I bought this product as part of a "deal" and found a remarkable solution to my heartburn issues! I was experiencing a burning sensation, right below my ribcage. Very uncomfortable and resisted calcium-based antacids or anything else I could think of! Finally, I remembered that I had some Zantac stowed in my medicine cabinet and decided to give it a shot. I am so glad that I did! Relief came about 1/2 hour later and I stayed acid-free for the rest of the night. Since that first night, I have used it after a night of too much fatty food and during a bout of stress related heartburn. Zantac has never failed me. I recommend it to my friends for quick relief of simple heartburn issues. It works quickly and lasts for the rest of the day. I haven't yet encountered a time when it hasn't worked. The packaging is also great -- it's a little blister pack so you can separate the tablets and carry one in your purse, stow one in your car, desk at work, whatever. Great idea!

Zantac 150 Heartburn Soother but One Thing...

By 

from Trenton, MI

Comments about Pfizer Zantac 150 Mg Tablets Maximum Strength Heartburn Relief:

**Hi, Yes, this medicine is GREAT for Heartburn! This is my experience to add to the other reviews. I do not have heartburn all the time, just once in a while when I eat hot and spicy food, and this Zantac 150 Mg. Tablets (which by the way, used to be a Prescription Medicine so this is really strong medicine!) really does work. The only thing is it is better to use this medicine for those who need it on a regular basis. I used to use Zantac 150 when it was a prescription medicine. My doctor prescribed it as a preventative medicine; I took it to soothe my stomach and digestive system as I was taking other medicines such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines such as motrin that like aspirin will irritate your stomach. Zantac protects against this irritation. It is a wonderful med!!!! **

**However, for me, I had ONE reaction, side effect: I started having pain in my hips from taking zantac on a regular basis, and, therefore, had to stop taking Zantac 150 mg. I was sensitive to taking it daily. (I believe this sensitivity was listed on the warning label at the time, as well.)**

**I WOULD recommend this product, but did want you to know of this uncommon side effect. This is probably a VERY RARE occurrence. **
