Hi Anon!

Thanks for your question.

Ranitidine is known as an H2 blocker. It works by reducing the amount of acid in your stomach. It is used to prevent and treat heartburn and other symptoms caused by too much acid in the stomach (acid indigestion). People who use certain drugs for chronic heartburn may be at increased risk of developing kidney problems. You can find more detailed information here:
