Re: Dr. wantes me to take rantidine twice aday at 300 mg ea-Isn't this too high
You have to trust the doc's judgement. It is not an abnormal dosage, nor is it mild dose. The doc may be feeling its an appropriate one.
Prilosec is Omeprezol, which is a protein pump inhibitor or PPI, where as Ranitidine is a histamine H2-receptor antagonist. Both works by controlling acid production, but PPIs are said to be more efficient than the latter for reflux etc.
