Clinical use

Nizatidine is used to treat duodenal ulcers, gastric ulcers, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and to prevent stress ulcers.[1]

Adverse effects

Side effects are uncommon, usually minor, and include diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, drowsiness, headache, and muscle aches.[1]

History and development

Nizatidine was developed by Eli Lilly, and was first marketed in 1987. It is considered to be equipotent with ranitidine and differs by the substitution of a thiazole ring in place of the furan ring in ranitidine. In September 2000, Eli Lilly announced they would sell the sales and marketing rights for Axid to Reliant Pharmaceuticals.[2] Subsequently, Reliant developed the oral solution of Axid, marketing this in 2004, after gaining approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).[3] However, a year later, they sold rights of the Axid Oral Solution (including the issued patent[4] protecting the product) to Braintree Laboratories.[5]

Nizatidine proved to be the last new histamine H2-receptor antagonist introduced prior to the advent of proton pump inhibitors.
