Zantac 75 is used to treat and prevent indigestion and heartburn for up to 12 hours. The stomach produces acid which helps to digest food. Sometimes your stomach produces too much acid which can cause indigestion and heartburn.

The active ingredient is ranitidine hydrochloride which is a medicine called an H2-blocker. It works by preventing your stomach from producing too much acid.
