This medication is used in the treatment of gastric and intestinal ulcers, as well as for prevention of intestinal ulcers from returning after having been resolved. This medication is employed in the treatment of certain conditions of the stomach and esophagus, like erosive esophagitis, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Its mechanism of action involves a decrease in production of stomach acid. It alleviates symptoms of persistent cough, stomach pain, heartburn and problems with swallowing. Famotidine is part of the H2-blocker class of drugs. It’s useful in the prevention and treatment of heartburn as well as other problems that arise due to excessive stomach acid production, called acid indigestion.
Patients that take famotidine should not smoke. Smoking tobacco appears to increase the risk of developing peptic ulcer disease and could impede ulcer healing or increase the risk of ulcer recurrence as well.
When taking this medication, you may experience headaches, constipation, or diarrhea.
