H2-histamine receptor blocker, Generation III. Inhibits the basic and histamine-, gastrin- and acetylcholine-stimulated production of hydrochloric acid. At the same time as the production of hydrochloric acid decreases and the pH increases, pepsin activity decreases. It does not significantly change the concentration of gastrine in the plasma. Weakly inhibits the cytochrome P450 oxidase system in the liver. After ingestion, the action begins after 1 hour, reaches the maximum within 3 hours. The duration of action of the drug at a single dose depends on the dose and is from 12 to 24 hours.
