Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Ranitidine works by blocking histamine at certain receptors (h2) in the stomach. It is not known to cause pain relief,it is not thought possible based on the mechanism of action. Having said that, persons react differently to medication.
It is also possible that after 8 weeks the knee is healing resulting in reduced pain.

hope this helps
