Cimetidine-ranitidine Cimetidine increased the area under the plasma ranitidine concentration-time curve, this was associated with a 25% reduction in the renal clearance of ranitidine. Cimetidine-triamterene Cimetidine increased the area under the plasma triamterene concentration-time curve, this was associated with a 70% reduction in the renal clearance of triamterene. Digoxin-amiodarone Amiodarone reduced the renal clearance of digoxin by 2%; it also reduced its non-renal clearance.
