Q: Can I reduce my acidity problem by changing my lifestyle habits?

  • Yes, you can control acidity problem by incorporating certain lifestyle modifications. Eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day, avoid lying down for 1 hour after a meal. Wear loose-fittin...

  • Consult your doctor for more personalised information on diet and lifestyle modifications.

Q: How long should I take the Rantac Tablet?

A: Use it only for the duration as prescribed by your doctor. Prolonged use is not recommended.

Q: When should I take the Rantac Tablet?

A: Take it exactly as told by your treating doctor. It should preferably be taken after having your meal.
