Tagamet Information

Tagamet (cimetidine) is used in adults to treat active sores in the upper part of the intestine and stomach (gastric ulcers) and to prevent intestinal or stomach ulcers from coming back after they have healed. Tagamet is also used to treat and relieve abnormal excessive acid secretion in the stomach caused by a tumour in the pancreas, parathyroid or too many mast cells building up in your body and to treat and prevent ulcers caused by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, indigestion and chest pain. Tagamet is also used to treat Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), a condition where the acid from the stomach persistently escapes into the food pipe causing pain, inflammation, and heartburn. Tagamet is used in children (16 to 18 years of age) with cystic fibrosis to manage their gastrointestinal symptoms. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited life-threatening disorder that damages the lungs and digestive tract. Cimetidine belongs to a group of medicines called H2 blockers. It works by reducing the amount of acid produced by your stomach.
