Ranitidine is a group of H 2 -receptor antagonist. It acts by blocking histamine receptors,
which are present on the cells in the stomach lining. Generally a substance called histamine binds to these receptors. Histamine is a chemical, produced throughout the body and has many effects. When histamine binds to H 2 -receptors on cells in the stomach lining, it causes them to produce acid. Ranitidine binds to H 2 -receptors, replacing some of the histamine. As a result, the amount of stomach acid produced by these cells is decreased. Stomach acid is present as a normal part of the digestive process. If large amounts of stomach acid are produced this can cause pain in the abdomen commonly known as indigestion. Ranitidine decreases the amount of acid in the stomach and duodenum. As a result, Ranitidine helps relieve symptoms of indigestion and aids the healing of ulcers.
