Before you buy Pepcid online
What It Does?
Pepcid provides relief of the symptoms of occasional heartburn and acid reflux. Gastric juice, which contains hydrochloric acid and is very acidic, is thought to contribute to the emergence of e.g. heartburn and acid reflux. A tablet of Pepcid can give you relief from these symptoms after about 30 minutes. Gastric juice production is controlled up to 12 hours.
Famotidine contained in Pepcid can also be used to treat other diseases not mentioned in this product. Ask your doctor, pharmacist or other healthcare professional if you have further questions and always follow their instructions.
How It Works?
Heartburn and acid reflux can be caused by gastric acid entering the esophagus during bed rest, or heavy lifting. Heartburn and acid reflux can also occur during stomach ulcers, and in rare cases also the more serious diseases of the stomach or esophagus.
Famotidine is a H2 receptor antagonist, which competitively blocks the action of histamine H2-receptors, thereby inhibited basal and stimulated gastric secretion both in volume and in percentage of hydrochloric acid and pepsin. The symptom-relieving effect after a dose of 10mg occurs in approximately 30 minutes. Maximum power, as measured by pH increase in the ventricle, seen in about 3.5 hours. The duration is up to 12 hours.
How It Is Taken?
Adults and children over 12 years should take one tablet when necessary for symptom relief, or one tablet 30 minutes before meal at the symptoms associated with ingestion of food or drink, but not more than 2 tablets per day. Treatment should last no longer than 2 weeks.
Is It For Me?
Hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients in Pepcid means that the drug is not for you.
Cross-reaction has been observed for drugs in this group and Pepcid should not be given to patients with hypersensitivity to other H2-receptor antagonist history.
Any Drug Interactions or Incompatibilities?
No clinically significant drug interactions have been identified.
Studies with famotidine have not shown any increase in anticipated levels of alcohol in the blood after drinking alcohol.
Changes in the pH of the stomach can affect bioavailability of certain drugs and thereby result in a reduced absorption of atazanavir.
The absorption of ketoconazole and itraconazole can be reduced. Ketoconazole should be given 2 hours before the administration of famotidine.
Antacids may decrease the absorption of famotidine and lead to lower plasma concentrations of famotidine. Famotidine should be given 1-2 hours before taking antacids.
Taking probenecid can delay the elimination of famotidine. Concomitant use of probenecid and famotidine should be avoided.
Concomitant use of sucralfate should be avoided within 2 hours before and after taking famotidine.

One important measure that can provide relief from heartburn and acid reflux is to change the way of life so that it becomes more regular and stress. This may involve, inter alia: to reduce smoking, avoid coffee, alcohol, spicy food, late suppers and heavy lifting. Certain drugs such as aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs for joint and muscle problems can also be the cause of heartburn and other stomach acid-related disorders. Sleeping with your head in an elevated position during the night can also relieve symptoms.
Another measure can be treated with prescription medication. If these steps do not help, consult a doctor. This is especially important if you have persistent or recurring discomfort, difficulty swallowing, or if the doctor has told you that you have reduced kidney function.
