Ranitidine (Zantac) and H. Pylori test watch

    I've had some stomach problems for a few weeks which my doctor thinks is gastritis so I've been given some omeprazole and I need to do a urine sample for an H. Pylori test. I forgot to mention that for the past couple of days I've been taking ranitidine tablets to help with the symptoms, even if I stop taking them from tomorrow and I do the sample on Monday will it mess with the results of the test?

    Bit late but if you've not already been tell the person doing the blood test when you go, they might not know themselves but can at least put a note on the system or something so they know when they look at your results. Worst comes to the worst you'll just have to redo it in a week or so r whenever it's out of your system.
