(For additional information see "Cimetidine: Pediatric drug information")

Duodenal ulcer, treatment and maintenance

Duodenal ulcer, treatment and maintenance:

Children ≥5 years and Adolescents <16 years: Limited data available, efficacy results variable: Oral: 20 to 40 mg/kg/day in 3 to 4 divided doses for 4 to 8 weeks (maximum dose: 300 mg/dose), followed by 5 to 8 mg/kg/dose once daily at bedtime (maximum dose: 400 mg/dose) (Chiang 1989; Thomson 1983; manufacturer's labeling).

Adolescents ≥16 years: Oral: 800 mg at bedtime or 400 mg twice daily or 300 mg 4 times daily for up to 8 weeks, followed by maintenance therapy of 400 mg once daily at bedtime (manufacturer's labeling). Note: Although treatment of active duodenal ulcers and maintenance therapy are included in the FDA manufacturer's labeling, use has fallen out of favor and in adults, experts suggest that cimetidine not be routinely used due to several cimetidine drug interactions and the preference for other options (eg, other histamine H2 antagonists, proton pump inhibitors [PPIs]).

Gastric ulcer, active

Gastric ulcer, active: Adolescents ≥16 years: Oral: 800 mg at bedtime or 300 mg 4 times daily for up to 8 weeks (manufacturer's labeling). Note: Although treatment of active gastric ulcers is included in the FDA manufacturer's labeling, use has fallen out of favor and in adults, experts suggest that cimetidine not be routinely used due to several cimetidine drug interactions and the preference for other options (eg, other histamine H2 antagonists, PPIs).

Gastroesophageal reflux disease

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD):

Infants, Children, and Adolescents <16 years: Limited data available: Oral: 30 to 40 mg/kg/day in 4 divided doses; maximum dose: 400 mg/dose (AAP [Lightdale 2013]; Cucchiara 1989; NASPGHAN/ESPGHAN [Rosen 2018]; manufacturer's labeling). A pharmacokinetic modeling study suggests that the optimal dose for acid suppression is 10 mg/kg/dose every 6 hours and that some patients may need doses as high as 15 mg/kg/dose (Lambert 1992).

Adolescents ≥16 years: Oral: 400 mg 4 times daily or 800 mg twice daily for 12 weeks (manufacturer's labeling).

Pathological hypersecretory conditions

Adolescents ≥16 years: Oral: 300 mg 4 times daily; adjust dose to patient response; maximum daily dose: 2,400 mg/day (manufacturer's labeling). Note: Although treatment of pathological hypersecretory conditions is included in the FDA manufacturer's labeling, use has fallen out of favor and in adults, experts suggest that cimetidine not be routinely used due to several cimetidine drug interactions and the preference for other options (eg, other histamine H2 antagonists, PPIs).

Sour stomach/Heartburn

Sour stomach/Heartburn (OTC labeling):

Prevention: Children ≥12 years and Adolescents: Oral: 200 mg daily up to 30 minutes prior to eating foods or beverages that cause heartburn (maximum daily dose: 400 mg/24 hours).

Warnings/Precautions

Concerns related to adverse effects:

• Confusion: Rare cases of reversible confusion have been associated with cimetidine; usually in older or severely ill patients, or in patients with kidney or hepatic impairment.

• Vitamin B12 deficiency: Prolonged treatment (≥2 years) may lead to vitamin B12 malabsorption and subsequent vitamin B12 deficiency. The magnitude of the deficiency is dose-related and the association is stronger in females and those younger in age (<30 years); prevalence is decreased after discontinuation of therapy (Lam 2013).

Disease-related concerns:

• Gastric malignancy: Relief of symptoms does not preclude the presence of a gastric malignancy.

• Hepatic impairment: Use with caution in patients with hepatic impairment.

• Kidney impairment: Use with caution in patients with kidney impairment; dosage adjustment recommended.

Special populations:

• Immunocompromised patients: May have increased risk of hyperinfection of strongyloidiasis.

• Older adults: Use caution in this age group due to risk of confusion and other CNS effects. Cimetidine should be avoided in those older adults with, or at risk of, delirium.

Other warnings/precautions:

• Serum creatinine/creatinine clearance estimates: Cimetidine can cause a transient and reversible rise in serum creatinine and/or decrease in CrCl (when using routine CrCl estimation formulas). This interference is likely due to competitive inhibition of cimetidine with creatinine for active tubular secretion and independent of an actual change in GFR. In patients with normal kidney function, the rise in serum creatinine may not be clinically apparent, but in patients with varying degrees of kidney impairment, this rise in serum creatinine may be more significant. Thus, treatment with cimetidine in patients with kidney failure may invalidate measurements of serum creatinine and estimates of CrCl (Andreev 1999; Larsson 1980). However, CrCl estimation formulas, such as Cockcroft-Gault, are known to overestimate actual GFR, particularly in patients with kidney impairment, and use of cimetidine has been explored clinically to improve the accuracy of CrCl estimates in these patients (Choi 1993; Van Acker 1992).

• OTC labeling: When used for self-medication (OTC), notify health care provider before use if any of the following are present: frequent chest pain; frequent wheezing particularly with heartburn; nausea/vomiting; unexplained weight loss; stomach pain; heartburn >3 months; heartburn with light-headedness, sweating, or dizziness; chest pain or shoulder pain with shortness of breath; sweating or pain that spreads to arms, neck, or shoulders; light-headedness. Stop use and notify health care provider if heartburn continues or worsens, stomach pain continues, or if use is required >14 days.

Warnings: Additional Pediatric Considerations

Use of gastric acid inhibitors, including proton pump inhibitors and H2 blockers, has been associated with an increased risk for development of acute gastroenteritis and community-acquired pneumonia in pediatric patients (Canani 2006). A large epidemiological study has suggested an increased risk for developing pneumonia in patients receiving H2 receptor antagonists; however, a causal relationship with cimetidine has not been demonstrated. A cohort analysis including more than 11,000 neonates reported an association between H2 blocker use and an increased incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in very low birth weight (VLBW) neonates (Guillet 2006). An approximate sixfold increase in mortality, NEC, and infection (ie, sepsis, pneumonia, urinary tract infection) was reported in patients receiving another H2 blocker, ranitidine, in a cohort analysis of 274 VLBW neonates (Terrin 2012).

Theophylline Derivatives: CYP1A2 Inhibitors (Weak) may increase the serum concentration of Theophylline Derivatives. Risk C: Monitor therapy

Thioridazine: CYP2D6 Inhibitors (Weak) may increase the serum concentration of Thioridazine. Management: Consider avoiding concomitant use of thioridazine and weak CYP2D6 inhibitors. If combined, monitor closely for QTc interval prolongation and arrhythmias. Some weak CYP2D6 inhibitors list use with thioridazine as a contraindication. Risk D: Consider therapy modification

TiZANidine: CYP1A2 Inhibitors (Weak) may increase the serum concentration of TiZANidine. Management: Avoid these combinations when possible. If combined use is necessary, initiate tizanidine at an adult dose of 2 mg and increase in 2 to 4 mg increments based on patient response. Monitor for increased effects of tizanidine, including adverse reactions. Risk D: Consider therapy modification

TOLBUTamide: Cimetidine may increase the serum concentration of TOLBUTamide. Risk C: Monitor therapy

Triazolam: CYP3A4 Inhibitors (Weak) may increase the serum concentration of Triazolam. Risk C: Monitor therapy

Tricyclic Antidepressants: Cimetidine may increase the serum concentration of Tricyclic Antidepressants. Risk C: Monitor therapy

Ubrogepant: CYP3A4 Inhibitors (Weak) may increase the serum concentration of Ubrogepant. Management: In patients taking weak CYP3A4 inhibitors, the initial and second dose (given at least 2 hours later if needed) of ubrogepant should be limited to 50 mg. Risk D: Consider therapy modification

Urapidil: Cimetidine may enhance the hypotensive effect of Urapidil. Risk C: Monitor therapy

Velpatasvir: Histamine H2 Receptor Antagonists may decrease the serum concentration of Velpatasvir. Risk C: Monitor therapy

Vitamin K Antagonists (eg, warfarin): Cimetidine may enhance the anticoagulant effect of Vitamin K Antagonists. Management: Avoid coadministration of cimetidine and vitamin K antagonists. If unavoidable, monitor for increased effects of vitamin K antagonists when cimetidine is initiated/dose increased, or decreased effects if cimetidine is discontinued/dose decreased. Risk D: Consider therapy modification

Zaleplon: Cimetidine may increase the serum concentration of Zaleplon. Management: The initial dose of zaleplon should be limited to 5 mg in patients taking cimetidine. Monitor patients for increased zaleplon effects/toxicities (ie, sedation, CNS depression) when these agents are combined. Risk D: Consider therapy modification

ZOLMitriptan: Cimetidine may increase the serum concentration of ZOLMitriptan. Management: Limit the maximum single dose of zolmitriptan to 2.5 mg, not to exceed 5 mg in 24 hours, when coadministered with cimetidine. Risk D: Consider therapy modification

Food Interactions

Prolonged treatment (≥2 years) may lead to malabsorption of dietary vitamin B12 and subsequent vitamin B12 deficiency (Lam 2013).

Pregnancy Considerations

Cimetidine crosses the placenta (Howe 1981). Histamine H2 antagonists have been evaluated for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), as well as gastric and duodenal ulcers during pregnancy (Cappell 2003; Richter 2003). Histamine H2 antagonists may be used for aspiration prophylaxis prior to cesarean delivery (ASA 2007).

Breastfeeding Considerations

Cimetidine is excreted in breast milk. Breastfeeding is not recommended by the manufacturer.

Monitoring Parameters

CBC, gastric pH; monitor kidney function to correct dose; occult blood with GI bleeding; signs of confusion.

Mechanism of Action

Competitive inhibition of histamine at H2 receptors of the gastric parietal cells resulting in reduced gastric acid secretion, gastric volume and hydrogen ion concentration reduced

Pharmacokinetics (Adult Data Unless Noted)

Onset of action: 1 hour

Duration: 80% reduction in gastric acid secretion for 4 to 5 hours after 300 mg dose

Absorption: Rapid

Distribution: Children and Adolescents: 1.23 ± 0.45 L/kg (Lloyd 1985b); Adults: 1 to 1.5 L/kg (Somogyi 1983)

Protein binding: 20% (Somogyi 1983)

Metabolism: Partially hepatic, forms metabolites (Somogyi 1983)

Bioavailability: ~60% to 70% (Somogyi 1983)

Half-life elimination: Neonates: 3.6 hours (Lloyd 1985a); Children and Adolescents: 1.39 ± 0.25 hours (Lloyd 1985b); Adults: ~2 hours

Time to peak, serum: Oral: 0.75 to 1.5 hours

Excretion: Primarily urine (48% as unchanged drug); feces (2%) (Somogyi 1983)

Pharmacokinetics: Additional Considerations (Adult Data Unless Noted)

Altered kidney function: Drug accumulation may occur in patients with severe kidney failure.
