What should I avoid while taking nizatidine?

While you are taking nizatidine, you should avoid drinking alcohol. Alcohol consumption increases the risk of serious side effects, including damage to the stomach. You also should avoid taking nizatidine with similar medications, such as famotidine (Pepcid), cimetidine (Tagamet), or ranitidine (Zantac), unless your doctor specifically tells you otherwise. Until you know how nizatidine will affect you, you should avoid doing anything that could be dangerous if you are not sufficiently alert and awake, such as driving. Women should not breast-feed while taking nizatidine.
