Tagamet is prescribed for the treatment of certain kinds of stomach and intestinal ulcers and related conditions. These include: active duodenal (upper intestinal) ulcers; active benign stomach ulcers; erosive gastroesophageal reflux disease (backflow of acid stomach contents); prevention of upper abdominal bleeding in those who are critically ill; and excess-acid conditions such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (a form of peptic ulcer with too much acid). It is also used for maintenance therapy of duodenal ulcer following the healing of active ulcers. Tagamet is known as a histamine blocker.

The usual dose is 800 mg once daily at bedtime. However, other doses shown to be effective are:
300 mg 4 times a day with meals and at bedtime
400 mg twice a day, in the morning and at bedtime

If you require maintenance therapy, the usual dose is 400 mg at bedtime.
