About Rantac-D OM Tablet 10's

Rantac-D OM Tablet 10's belongs to a group of medicines called gastrointestinal agents used to treat gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and peptic ulcers. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). Peptic ulcers are sores that develop on the inner lining of the intestine and stomach.

Rantac-D OM Tablet 10's is a combination of two drugs, namely: Ranitidine (H2 receptor antagonist) and Domperidone (a dopamine antagonist). Ranitidine works by blocking histamine H2 receptors located on the stomach lining, thereby reducing gastric acid secretion. Domperidone works by increasing the movements and contractions of stomach muscles. Together, Rantac-D OM Tablet 10's helps in treating acidity.

You are advised to take Rantac-D OM Tablet 10's for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as dry mouth, stomach pain, constipation, headache, sleepiness, and dizziness. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Rantac-D OM Tablet 10's may cause sleepiness and dizziness, so drive only if you are alert. Rantac-D OM Tablet 10's should not be given to children as safety has not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with Rantac-D OM Tablet 10's as it could lead to increased drowsiness and can elevate the production of stomach acid. Keep your doctor informed about all the medicines and your health condition to rule out any side-effects.
