What is Stomatidin?
Stomatidin is in a group of drugs called histamine receptor antagonists. Stomatidin works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach produces.
Stomatidin is used to treat and prevent certain types of ulcer, and to treat conditions that cause the stomach to produce too much acid. Stomatidin is also used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), when stomach acid backs up into the esophagus and causes heartburn.
Stomatidin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
An indication is a term used for the list of condition or symptom or illness for which the medicine is prescribed or used by the patient. For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains. Now fever, headache and body pains are the indications of paracetamol.
Stomatidin Tablets USP are indicated in:1.Short-term treatment of active duodenal ulcer. Most patients heal within 4 weeks and there is rarely reason to use Stomatidin at full dosage for longer than 6 to 8 weeks. Concomitant antacids should be given as needed for relief of pain. However, simultaneous administration of oral Stomatidin and antacids is not recommended, since antacids have been reported to interfere with the absorption of oral Stomatidin.2.Maintenance therapy for duodenal ulcer patients at reduced dosage after healing of active ulcer. Patients have been maintained on continued treatment with Stomatidin 400 mg at bedtime for periods of up to five years.3.Short-term treatment of active benign gastric ulcer.

USES OF STOMATIDIN IN DETAILS
There are specific as well as general uses of a drug or medicine. A medicine can be used to prevent a disease, treat a disease over a period or cure a disease. It can also be used to treat the particular symptom of the disease. The drug use depends on the form the patient takes it. It may be more useful in injection form or sometimes in tablet form.
Stomatidin is used to treat ulcers of the stomach and intestines and prevent them from coming back after they have healed. This medication is also used to treat certain stomach and throat (esophagus) problems caused by too much stomach acid (e.g., Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, erosive esophagitis) or a backward flow of stomach acid into the esophagus (acid reflux disease/GERD). Decreasing extra stomach acid can help relieve symptoms such as stomach pain, heartburn, difficulty swallowing, persistent cough, and trouble sleeping. It can also prevent serious acid damage to your digestive system (e.g., ulcers, cancer of the esophagus).
Stomatidin belongs to a class of drugs commonly called H2 blockers. It works by reducing the amount of acid in your stomach.
