  1. H2 blockers: names and MOA
    • Cimetidine, ranitidine, etc
    • Reversible block of histamine H2 receptors
    • Decreases secretion by parietal cells
    • Take before eating
  2. H2 blockers: toxicity
    • P450 inhibitor
    • Antiandrogenic
    • Cross BBB (confusion, HA) and placenta
    • Decreased renal excretion of creatinine
  3. PPIs: names
    • omeprazole
    • lansoprazole
  4. PPIs: MOA
    Irreversibly inhibit H/K-ATPase in parietal cells
  5. Bismuth and sucralfate: MOA and use
    • For ulcer healing and traveler's diarrhea
    • Bind to ulcer base providing protection
    • Allow bicarb secretion to reestablish pH gradient in the mucous layer
  6. What is triple therapy of h. pylori ulcers?
    • Metronidazole
    • Amoxicillin (or tetracycline)
    • Bismuth
  7. Misoprostol: MOA
    • PGE1 analog
    • Increases gastric mucous barrier
    • Decreases acid production

  10. Muscarinic antagonists: names
    • Pirenzepine
    • propantheline
  11. Muscarinic antagonists for PUD: MOA
    • Block M1 receptors on ECL cells to decrease histamine secretion

  13. Antacids: problem
    • They can affect concentrations of other drugs by altering gastric/urinary pH or delaying gastric emptying
