Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Visual Analogue Scale Score [ Time Frame: 30th and 60th minutes ]
    The investigators are measuring the change of pain from the baseline to the 30th and 60th minutes by visual anologue scale (VAS). Visual Analogue Scale measurement is between 0 (no pain) and 100 (worst pain). A decrease of 13 or 16 mm in VAS score is accepted as a minimum clinically significant change in pain.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Need for Additional Drug [ Time Frame: 60 th minute ]
    The investigators are measuring the need for additional drug at the end of 60 minutes.

Enrollment: 66
Study Start Date: October 2012
Study Completion Date: January 2013
Primary Completion Date: January 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions

33 patients
Other Name: Pantpas
Active Comparator: ranitidine
Intravenous ranitidine 50 mg
Drug: Ranitidine
33 patients
Other Name: Ulcuran

Detailed Description:
Dyspepsia is one of the common complaints in emergency department. Proton pomp inhibitors, H2 receptor blockers and anti-acids are common drugs for treating dyspepsia in emergency department. However there is no study in the emergency department comparing the effectiveness of these drugs. So the investigators planned this study which drug is effective in these patients in order to provide a cost-effective treatment in dyspeptic patients.
