Pepcid AC is gastrointestinal medication used to treat and prevent peptic ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), heartburn, sour stomach, and other conditions caused by excess stomach acid.

Famotidine is a potent histamine H2-receptor antagonist that reduces and controls the excretion of too much gastric acid to treat GERD, heartburn, and sour stomach. The inhibitory actions of Pepcid AC also help heal duodenal and gastric ulcers.

This medication has been found to be more effective at treating gastric ulcers than other histamine inhibitors. Pepcid AC is well-tolerated and has demonstrated a low incidence of adverse events even when taken longer term for the prevention and maintenance of hypersecretory gastric acid conditions.

The dose of Pepcid AC will vary depending on the individual and gastric condition being treated. Follow your doctor’s instructions and read packaging labels carefully to ensure the best results.

Is famotidine safer than omeprazole for heartburn?

Famotidine is a first-choice heartburn treatment for those who experience symptoms less than twice a week and provides quick relief. Omeprazole is used to treat heartburn that occurs more than often and does not provide immediate relief or prevention from symptoms. Both drugs are generally well-tolerated and effective, but famotidine may be more useful in some circumstances.

Can you take Pepcid AC long term?

The length of time for which you are prescribed to take Pepcid AC will vary depending on the gastric condition being treated. When used for treating symptoms of heartburn, you should not use famotidine for longer than 14 consecutive days. For other conditions such as GERD and gastric ulcers, famotidine may be taken for a longer period. Consult with your doctor and follow all their directions.
