Cimetidine-cephalothinlcephalexin Cimetidine had no effect on the renal clearance of the organic anion cephalothin, however, it reduced the renal clearance of the zwitterion cephalexin by 20%. It was concluded that cimetidines effect was specific for organic cations and that both anion and cation transport systems might be involved for those zwitterions that undergo tubular secretion. Cimetidine-metformin Cimetidine increased the area under the plasma metformin concentration-time curve by an average of 50%, this was associated with a 27% reduction in the renal clearance of metformin.
