Cimetidine (Tagamet) - Overview
Cimetidine, marketed under the brand name Tagamet, is a type of medication used in helping people with heartburn associated with acid ingestion. Push Health helps people who need a cimetidine prescription connect with licensed medical providers who can prescribe Tagamet if safe and appropriate to do so.
What Is Cimetidine?
Cimetidine, brand name Tagamet, is a medication that belongs to a class of medications known as histamine H2 receptor antagonists (similar to famotidine). In this capacity, cimetidine (Tagamet) helps reduce stomach acid production. Cimetidine is used to relieve heartburn associated with acid indigestion and prevent heartburn associated with acid indigestion. Cimetidine and wart treatment has also been linked previously but no conclusive evidence has found benefit to date. Cimetidine may also have effects on androgen hormones in the body. Cimetidine's mechanism of action is different from that of omeprazole.
Cimetidine - Dosage
After oral administration, cimetidine is absorbed rapidly and starts working within 30 minutes. Peak cimetidine levels occur within 3 hours as is metabolized by the liver. Elimination occurs primarily via the urine and cimetidine exhibits an elimination half-life of just over 2 hours. Many recommended cimetidine regimens start with 1 cimetidine 200 mg tablet although some people may take cimetidine 400 mg daily, depending on the recommendation of their medical provider. Cimetidine is considered slightly expensive, costing approximately 50 cents per cimetidine 400 mg tablet at many pharmacies. Insurance may cover the cost of cimetidine but it depends on the insurance plan. Cimetidine coupons may also be available online to help cover some of the cost.
Can I Buy Cimetidine Online?
Some versions of cimetidine are available over-the-counter (OTC) in the United States. Other forms of cimetidine (Tagamet) require a prescription and, for prescription versions, one cannot buy the cimetidine online legally in the United States. People who need a cimetidine prescription, however, can connect with a medical provider on Push Health who can prescribe cimetidine or Tagamet if appropriate to do so.
Cimetidine - Side Effects
Cimetidine, like other medications, can cause side effects. Side effects related to cimetidine use include rash, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, loss of libido and myalgia. People who have a cimetidine hypersensitivity or allergy should not use the medication. Cimetidine can interact with other medications when used concomitantly and care should be taken in those situations. Cimetidine and alcohol should not be used together. Concerns about possible side effects related to cimetidine use should be discussed with one's pharmacist and medical provider.
