Expert advice

  • Roxatidine is a well tolerated and safe medicine with a very low incidence of side effects.
  • Take Roxatidine before going to bed if you are taking this medicine once a day as it is very effective in controlling stomach acid released in the midnight.
  • If you are also taking an antacid, take it two hours before or after taking Roxatidine.
  • Avoid taking soft drinks, citrus fruits like orange and lemon, which can irritate the stomach and increase acid secretion.
  • Inform your doctor if you do not feel better after taking Roxatidine for two weeks or 14 days as you may be suffering from some other problems.
  • Inform your doctor if you have ever been diagnosed with kidney or liver disease. Dose of your medicine may need to be adjusted.
