Abstract

The effect of nizatidine, a new H2‐receptor antagonist, on the hepatic metabolism of three probe drugs was studied in normal volunteers. The drugs studied were chlordiazepoxide and theophylline which are metabolized in part by N‐demethylation by the hepatic microsomal cytochrome P‐450 system and lorazepam which is conjugated to lorazepam glucuronide. A 7 day course of nizatidine did not interfere with the disposition of any of these therapeutic agents in man. 1985 The British Pharmacological Society
