Hello dear,

Thanks for trusting us about your health care.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
Rantac is a ranitidine tablets an antacid and not an abortion pill.
You can continue your pregnancy safely if had 2 doses of rantac.
It is FDA approved category - B drug means there is no study on human beings but it is safely used during pregnancy without causing any harm to fetus.
Hopefully it is useful, feel free to discuss more.
Good luck.
