Ranitidine can be stopped cold XXXXXXX It is not known to produce withdrawal effects. That being said, I do not feel ranitidine is in anyway responsible for shortness of breath or nervousness. Your doctor needs to consider other causes before attributing it to ranitidine.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Good luck!!
