Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Peak plasma concentration (Cmax) of MNTX prior to and following multi-dose cimetidine regimen [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the potential effects of cimetidine on the pharmacokinetics of MNTX


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under the plasma concentration (AUC) of MNTX prior to and following a multi-dose cimetidine regimen [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the potential effects of cimetidine on the pharmacokinetics of MNTX

  • Half-life of MNTX prior to and following a multi-dose cimetidine regimen [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the potential effects of cimetidine on the pharmacokinetics of MNTX

  • Clearance (both total and renal)of MNTX prior to and following a multi-dose cimetidine regimen [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the potential effects of cimetidine on the pharmacokinetics of MNTX

  • Volume of distribution of MNTX prior to and following a multi-dose cimetidine regimen [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the potential effects of cimetidine on the pharmacokinetics of MNTX

  • Number of subject with adverse events as measured before, during, and after administration of cimetidine [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the potential effects of cimetidine on safety, and tolerability of MNTX
