Zantac® Background

Zantac® is a brand of the generic drug ranitidine, a histamine-2 blocker that works by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach.

Common side effects associated with Zantac® include, but are not limited to:[2]


  • Headaches
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Upset stomach
  • Trowing up
  • Pain of the stomach


How to Get Zantac® Samples

Occasionally, the official Zantac® website will offer free samples of OTC Zantac® when consumers fill out a free sample registration form. Samples offered in the past have included Maximum Strength Zantac 150®.[3]

When no samples are advertised, it may be possible to obtain free over-the-counter Zantac® by calling Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals at 800-243-0127 or by requesting them via email, which consumers may do through the Contact Us link on the official Zantac® website.[4]

Prescription Zantac® samples may also be acquired through a patient's doctor or pharmacist.

Additional savings are available through the use of Zantac® coupons, which are posted on the official Zantac® website. To get them, consumers may click on the Coupons and Special Offers link at the top right of the home page. This will lead to a coupon good for $5 off of a Zantac® 24-count or larger package. The savings may be applied to any variety of Zantac®.[5]

There are also two patient assistance programs that help cover the cost of prescription Zantac®. The Xubex Patient Assistance Program sells the drug through their own pharmacy at a discount, and all U.S. residents are eligible to apply. Rx Outreach Medications also provides Zantac® discounts, and requires patients to earn under 300% of the federal poverty level.[6]
