Combination therapy

Critical facts icon

Many drug-drug interactions have been documented for anti-ulcer medications, including:
1) among the drugs within the anti-ulcer regimens (TETRACYCLINE + antacids, for example) and
2) alterations in the pharmacokinetics of other drugs a patient is taking (especially in cases where luminal pH is critical for absorption, as both increases and decreases in bioavailability have been documented).

The fact that many of these drugs are available OTC must be considered also.
