Hi,

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

Ranitidine is considered as safe drug and most of the times with no harmful interactions

Studies conducted say that Ranitidine has no interaction with propronolol , no interaction with nifidipine.

The link to study is,

Studies have to be conducted yet about its interaction with diltiazem and verapamil, but when compared to cimitidine it is safe drug overall.

Please leave a positive rating at the top right corner of the page, so that I'm compensated for the answer.

Hello

There are many cardiac meds.

Please tell me your exact medications.

I can then tell you exact interactions.

For example, interactions can occur with blood thinners, and other medications.

The effective level of zantac can be increased by diltiazem, another example.

As well as some cardiac meds, directly or indirectly.

I am Dr. Thomas, double board certified US doctor.
