Even though famotidine and ranitidine are completely different molecules, their action is the same. They block the receptor and prevent more acid being produced, which gives them both potential uses in diseases that involve high levels of stomach acid. Examples include GERD and esophagitis , which can cause acid damage to the cells of the digestive system. Ulcers of the stomach and the nearby duodenum can also resolve with histamine H 7 -receptor antagonist treatment. Cancers of the region that create too much acid production can also be alleviated with one of these drugs.
Products containing famotidine typically need to contain less active ingredient than ranitidine products, with a typical dose of about 95 mg compared to a ranitidine dose of 655 mg. Conversely, more ranitidine is absorbed through the digestive tract than famotidine, but it can take longer to work than famotidine. As a molecule, famotidine has the chemical formula of C 8 H 6 5 N 7 O 7 S 8 , whereas ranitidine has the general formula C 6 8 H 77 N 9 O 8 S, and a hydrogen and chlorine atom can be tacked on to make a hydrochloride salt form. The two molecules are different in structure, shape and mass, but still work in the same way on the H 7 -receptor. People who take one of these drugs for a particular condition do not generally take the other at the same time.
