Pepcid is an antacid medication used to treat conditions related to the production of excess stomach acid such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcers, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Famotidine is a histamine H2-receptor antagonist that helps block your body’s secretion of too much stomach acid. Thanks to this, the medication helps alleviate symptoms associated with acid reflux and peptic ulcer disease. Pepcid can also help prevent heartburn from indigestion and sour stomach.

Pepcid has a good rate of absorption and has been found to have a more potent effect than some other antacids.

Uses and Dosage

The dose of Pepcid prescribed will vary depending on the individual and condition being treated. Follow your doctor’s directions and read packaging labels carefully.

  • Swallow tablet whole with a glass of water
  • To prevent heartburn, take 10-60 minutes before ingesting anything that causes heartburn
  • Most adults take 20mg to relieve or prevent heartburn
  • Do not take more than 40mg in 24 hours
  • Do not double dose
  • Speak with your doctor if symptoms don’t improve after 14 days

How does Pepcid work?

Pepcid helps relieve heartburn and symptoms from conditions related to an excess of stomach acid by lowering the amount of acid in your stomach. Famotidine blocks a histamine receptor responsible for stomach acid production.

When should I take Pepcid?

Pepcid can be used to treat or prevent heartburn as well as managing symptoms related to acid reflux and peptic ulcers. To prevent heartburn after a meal, take Pepcid before eating. This medication can also be taken when needed to relieve heartburn.

How long does it take for Pepcid to work?

Pepcid contains a histamine H2-receptor inhibitor that is quickly absorbed into your body. It can start to decrease your stomach acid production within 15 to 30 minutes. This allows you to take a dose right before a meal to prevent heartburn. The medication also stays in your system to provide relief and prevention the entire day.
