Absorption of drugs given concomitantly may be altered. The commonest problem with intensive antacid regimes is diarrhoea, which may afflict up to half the patients. One recommendation is to make up a mixture of equal parts of magnesium trisilicate BPC and aluminium hydroxide gel BP. This is cheap and has high buffering capacity. If the resulting mixture causes diarrhoea or constipation, the ratio of the constituents can be altered accordingly. One possible disadvantage of this scheme might be the relatively high sodium content of both constituents.

Patients who fail to heal or who relapse frequently can be sent for surgery. Each of these treatment options will be considered in turn. Intermittent Courses of Cimetidine With this approach, relapses are treated symptomatically (although endoscopy may be used to confirm the presence of an ulcer crater), with standard courses of therapy. The advantages include: 30 GASTROINTESTINAL DISEASE 1. With a well-defined association between symptoms and therapy, the patient is likely to be motivated and compliance high.

Thus there is no evidence that cimetidine alters favourably the natural history of the disease. In fact, some authorities suggest that this may be worsened. The integrated gastrin response to a test meal may be increased three-fold after a year's cimetidine. This is not associated with an increase in the parietal cell mass or with the number of gastrin-producing cells (G-cells) in the antrum.
