    Suppress the secretion of gastric acid by selectively blocking H2 receptors in parietal cells lining stomach
  9. What 2 classes of meds are prescribed for gastric and peptic ulcers, GERD, and hypersecretory conditions (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome)?

    • Older adults w/ kidney or liver dysfunction
    • Older adults
  13. Why should H2 receptor antagonists and proton pump inhibitors be used cautiously in clients who are at high risk for pneumonia (those w/ COPD)?
    They decrease gastric acidity, which promotes bacterial colonization of stomach and respiratory tract
  14. Cimetidine increases levels of what meds?
    • warfarin
    • phenytoin (Dilantin)
    • theophylline
    • lidocaine
  15. The concurrent use of what meds can decrease the absorption of H2 receptor antagonists?
  16. Pts should not take an antacid ___ hr before or after taking a H2 receptor antagonist.
  17. *omeprazol (Prilosec)
    pantoprazole (Protonix)
    lansoprazole (Prevacid)
    rabeprazole sodium (AcipHex)
    esomeprazole (Nexium)
    What are these?
    Proton pump inhibitors used for peptic ulcer disease
  18. What is the expected pharm action for proton pump inhibitors in peptic ulcer disease?
    Reduce gastric acid secretion by irreversibly inhibiting enzyme that produces gastric acid; reduce basal and stimulated acid production
  19. Which antisecretory agent used in peptic ulcer disease has insignificant ADRs short term, but increases risk of gastric cancer and osteoporosis long term??
    Proton pump inhibitors
  20. ___ levels may be increased when used concurrently with omeprazole.
    Digoxin (Lanoxin)
  21. Absorption of ketoconazole (Nizoral), itraconazole (Sporanox), and atazanavir (Reyataz) is extremely decreased when taken concurrently with which antisecretory agent (thus concurrent use should be avoided)?
    Proton pump inhibitors
  22. T/F Pts may sprinkle contents of proton pump inhibitor capsules over food to facilitate swallowing.
  23. Pts should take this proton pump inhibitor once a day prior to eating breakfast.
  24. Pts taking this classification of meds should avoid alcohol and irritating meds (NSAIDs).

  25. Active ulcers are generally treated with proton pump inhibitors for how long?
    4-6 wks
  26. Which proton pump inhibitor can be administerd IV and may cause thrombophlebitis?

    • H2 receptor blockers
    • proton pump inhibitors
  28. *sucralfate (Carafate)
    What is this?
    mucosal protectant used in peptic ulcer disease
  29. What's the expected pharm action of mucosal protectants?
    To be transformed by acid in stomach, duodenum into thick substance that adheres to ulcer, protecting ulcer from further injury by acid, pepsin
  30. Mucosal protectants can stick to ulcers for how long?
    Up to 6 hrs
  31. This med is used for pts with acute duodenal ulcers and those requiring maintenance therapy; it is under investigation for use in gastric ulcers and GERD.
  32. This med has no systemic effects, but pts should be encouraged to increase dietary fiber and drink min. 1,500 mL fluids/day to prevent constipation.
  33. This med may interfere with the absorption of phenytoin, digoxin, warfarin, and ciprofloxacin. Antacids interfere with its absorption.
  34. This med used in peptic ulcer disease should be taken on an empty stomach.
  35. *aluminum hydroxide (Amphojel)
    aluminum carbonate
    magnesium hydroxide (Milk of Magnesia)
    sodium bicarbonate
    What are these?
    Antacid used in peptic ulcer disease
  36. What's the expected pharm action of antacids use in peptic ulcer disease?
