More about Nizatidine

What is/are Nizatidine?

Nizatidine is a histamine H2-receptor antagonist that inhibits stomach acid production, and commonly used in the treatment of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It was developed by Eli Lilly and is marketed under the brand names Tazac and Axid.

Medical uses

Certain preparations of nizatidine are now available over the counter in various countries including the United States. Nizatidine has been used experimentally to control weight gain associated with some antipsychotic medication.

Adverse effects

Antacid preparations such as nizatidine by suppressing acid mediated break down of proteins, leads to an elevated risk of developing food or drug allergies. This happens due to undigested proteins then passing into the gastrointestinal tract where sensitisation occurs. It is unclear whether this risk occurs with only long-term use or with short-term use as well.
