Ranitidine and Cyclo 3 Fort and Lymphocytic Colitis

I came across a report today by a pathologist stating that the medications Ranitidine and Cyclo 3 Fort may have a causal link to Lymphocytic Colitis. I'm curious if anyone diagnosed with LC took either of them in the past? It has also been found that in these cases when these meds were taken again, the LC flared up.

Ranitidine is an h2 blocker used to treat stuff like ulcers, GERD, heartburn, etc. You can get it over the counter as well. You may have heard of it. Zantac.

Since I quit the Cholestyramine, I have been on several H2 blockers including ranitidine. I take it, but it doesn't seem to help. You have me wondering if by taking it, I am only making things worse?
