What is Pepcid?

Pepcid is an oral pill made up of an H2 antagonist drug called famotidine. We carry the generic alternative of this mediation in 20mg and 40mg!

What is Pepcid used for?

Pepcid (famotidine) is used to treat and prevent ulcers located in the stomach and intestines. Stomach ulcers may occur when the protective mucus layer in the digestive tract has been reduced, which then allows stomach acid to create painful open sores (ulcers) that may bleed. Pepcid (famotidine) also treats conditions where the stomach produces too much acid, such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Additionally, this medication can also treat conditions where the acid backs up from the stomach into the esophagus which causes heartburn, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

What does Pepcid do?

Pepcid (famotidine) is effective at treating these conditions because the histamine-2 blocker (H2 antagonist) agent is able to decrease the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
