Abstract

Ranitidine 150 mg twice daily is effective for the treatment of gastric ulcers. We proposed that ranitidine 300 mg once daily would also be effective. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, parallel-group study, adults with an endoscopically verified acute gastric ulcer ≥ 5 mm were treated with either ranitidine 300 mg (n = 183) or placebo (n = 178) at bedtime for up to 12 wk. Gastric ulcer healing, determined by endoscopy, was achieved in 65% and 89% of ranitidine-treated patients by 6 and 12 wk, compared with 45% and 72% of placebo-treated patients by 6 wk and 12 wk (p <0.001). Throughout the 12-wk study, ranitidine 300 mg was significantly more effective than placebo in relieving pain (p <0.05), with ranitidine-treated patients also using fewer antacid tablets. Ranitidine 300 mg had a safety profile similar to that of placebo. We conclude that ranitidine 300 mg at bedtime is safe and effective for healing acute gastric ulcers.
