Zinetac general information

What is Zinetac used for?

Zinetac tablets 300mg are used to treat several conditions that are caused by excess gastric (stomach) acid production.  Zinetac 300 helps treat and relieve symptoms of gastric reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD), which is when the acidic contents of the stomach flow back into the oesophagus producing symptoms like heartburn and dyspepsia (indigestion and abdominal pain), and can damage the oesophagus causing inflammation (oesophagitis).  Zinetac tablets 300mg are used to treat and prevent peptic ulcers in the stomach (gastric ulcers or damage to the stomach lining) and duodenum (duodenal ulcers or damage to the lining of the upper intestine); and gastric ulcers caused by use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID); also as combination therapy to treat gastric ulcers that are caused by infection of the stomach with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, in conjunction with using antibiotics.  Zinetac tablets 300mg are also are also used to treat symptoms of acid-related dyspepsia that can be caused by eating high fat or acidic foods, or Zollinger-Ellison syndrome in which increased levels of the hormone gastrin causes an excessive production of gastric acid.  Zinetac tablets 300mg can also be used as prophylaxis to treat or prevent conditions where reduced gastric acid would be desirable, such as upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage from stress ulceration in seriously ill patients, recurrent haemorrhage in patients with bleeding peptic ulcers, before general anaesthesia in patients considered to be at risk of acid aspiration (Mendelson's syndrome) and during labour.

How does Zinetac work?

Zinetac tablets 300mg contain ranitidine, a specific histamine H2-receptor antagonist that is used to treat conditions caused by excess gastric acid, by reducing the amount of gastric acid produced into the stomach.  Stomach acid is needed for digestion of proteins in the diet and is made by the parietal cells of the stomach wall.  Stimulation of the gastric H2-receptor, by histamine produced by specific cells in the stomach wall, stimulates acid production by the parietal cells.  Ranitidine in Zinetac 300 binds competitively to the H2-receptor on the acid producing cells of the stomach and inhibits basal (unstimulated) amounts such as at night or in between meals and secretion of gastric acid stimulated by food; it also reduces the volume and the acidity of the secretion.  Ranitidine in Zinetac 300 reduces the acidity of the stomach contents, which reduces the acid damage that can be caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD).  This action of Zinetac tablets 300mg helps prevent the formation of peptic ulcers and helps ulcers and damage caused by gastric reflux to heal.  

What does Zinetac contain?

Zinetac tablets contain the active ingredient ranitidine hydrochloride 300mg, a specific histamine H2-receptor antagonist that is used to treat conditions caused by excess gastric acid. 

Treating gastric reflux with Zinetac

Zinetac tablets 300mg contain ranitidine, which is used to treat conditions caused by caused by excess gastric (stomach) acid production, like gastric reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD).  Gastric reflux is when the acidic contents of the stomach flow back into the oesophagus because the sphincter (muscle at the junction of the oesophagus and stomach) that normally acts as a one-way valve and prevents backflow of stomach contents, does not function properly or is damaged.  Symptoms caused by gastric reflux include heartburn and dyspepsia (indigestion and abdominal pain), and damage to the oesophagus causing inflammation (oesophagitis).  Ranitidine in Zinetac 300 binds to the H2-receptor on gastric acid producing parietal cells in the stomach wall and inhibits basal (unstimulated) amounts such as at night or in between meals and secretion of gastric acid stimulated by food.  This action helps relieve symptoms of gastric reflux, like heartburn and dyspepsia (indigestion and abdominal pain), and reduces the acid damage that can be caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD), while allowing it to heal.    

Zinetac for peptic ulcers

Zinetac tablets 300mg contain ranitidine, which is used to treat and prevent peptic ulcers in the stomach (gastric ulcers or damage to the stomach lining) and duodenum (duodenal ulcers or damage to the lining of the upper intestine), caused by excess secretion of gastric acid; also gastric ulcers caused by use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID).  Zinetac tablets 300mg are also used as combination therapy to treat and prevent gastric ulcers that are caused by infection of the stomach with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, in conjunction with using antibiotics.  Ranitidine in Zinetac 300 binds to the H2-receptor on gastric acid producing parietal cells in the stomach wall and inhibits basal (unstimulated) amounts such as at night or in between meals and secretion of gastric acid stimulated by food.  This action of ranitidine reduces the acidity of the stomach contents, which reduces the acid damage to the stomach wall and allows ulcers that have already developed to heal.
