English term or phrase:Agopton
Agopton ist ein in Deutschland reltiv haeufig verschriebenes Mittel bei Magenerkrankungen. Ich muesste wissen, was das englische Aequivalent ist - was wird in England verschrieben? Agopton scheint es nur in Deutschland zu geben.
Ranitidine (generic form of Zantac)
Oral ranitidine hydrochloride is a histamine H2 receptor blocker used to treat certain types of ulcers and other conditions in which your stomach is producing too much acid.
Zantac is prescribed for the short-term treatment (4 to 8 weeks) of active duodenal ulcer and active benign gastric ulcer, and as maintenance therapy for gastric or duodenal ulcer, at a reduced dosage, after the ulcer has healed. It is also used for the treatment of conditions in which the stomach produces too much acid, such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome and systemic mastocytosis, for gastroesophageal reflux disease (backflow of acid stomach contents) and for healing--and maintaining healing of--erosive esophagitis (severe inflammation of the esophagus).
