Why is Axid prescribed?
Nizatidine (Axid) is prescribed for treatment and maintenance treatment of stomach and intestinal ulcers. It is also used in conditions where there is excess acid in the stomach, heartburn, and erosive esophagitis (damage to the esophagus due to the backing up of acid from the stomach).
What does it do?
Peptic ulcers (ulcers found in the stomach or intestine) occur when the stomach acid corrodes the lining of your stomach and decreases the mucus that protects it. Treatment of peptic ulcers are not difficult however if proper treatment is not done, they can worsen.
Nizatidine is a histamine-2 blocker and it decreases the amount of acid produced by the stomach. It can inhibit acid secretion at night for up to 12 hours and can also decrease acid secretion triggered by caffeine, food, and other causes.
How should I take it?
Axid is available in 150mg and 300mg capsules. It is intended for oral administration and should be swallowed as a whole. Do not crush, chew, break it in half, or tamper the capsule in any way. Take it with a full glass of water one hour before eating or drinking anything that may cause heartburn.
