What is Protecadin OD?
Protecadin OD works by interfering with histamine in the body to decrease the amount of acid produced in the body.

Reducing the amount of stomach acid produced can treat conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and dyspepsia. Some people may also use the medication to treat gastric and duodenal ulcers.

Protecadin OD should be taken as directed by a doctor, usually 1 to 2 times per day. It is recommended to take the tablets once after breakfast and once after your evening meal or before bedtime. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the treatment.
