Famotidine - Overview

Famotidine, marketed under the brand name Pepcid, is a medication used in treating some types of gastrointestinal ulcers and hypersecretory conditions. Push Health can connect people who need a famotidine prescription with medical providers online who can prescribe famotidine medication, including generic famotidine 20 mg and famotidine 40 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.

What Is Famotidine Used For?

Famotidine, like cimetidine (Tagamet), belongs to a class of medications known as histamine-2 (H2) receptor antagonists. Famotidine medication is indicated for treating active gastric and duodenal ulcers, non-erosive gastroesophageal reflux disease (i.e. acid reflux) that is causing symptoms, and esophagitis that has become erosive in certain patients. Famotidine reduces the concentration of acid and the volume of secretions in the stomach. Once taken orally, famotidine tablets usually start exerting their effects within one hour with maximum concentrations achieved within 180 minutes. Famotidine is combined with the medication ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) in Duexis.

Famotidine - Dosage and Cost

Famotidine prescription medication is available as famotidine 20 mg tablets and famotidine 40 mg tablets. One famotidine dosing regimen often prescribed is to take the medication once per day at night to twice per day (morning and night). Famotidine can usually be taken with or without food but the final instructions on dosing and how famotidine should be taken is up to the prescribing medical provider. Dosing adjustments are generally made in the setting of kidney disorders. Famotidine itself is a crystalline compound that slightly dissolves in water and is pale yellow in color. Generic famotidine is affordable, costing under $10 for 60 famotidine 20 mg tablets at many pharmacies in the United States. In addition, famotidine coupons may be available online and some insurance plans may cover the cost when one buys famotidine medication from a pharmacy using a prescription.

Can I Buy Famotidine Online?

Famotidine OTC is available in the United States. However, insurance plans will often not cover the cost of a famotidine prescription unless it is dispensed by a pharmacy with a valid prescription from a medical provider. For prescription-strength famotidine, one cannot just buy famotidine online without first consulting a medical provider and getting a famotidine tablet prescription. People who need a famotidine prescription are able to use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe famotidine tablets, including famotidine 40 mg and famotidine 20 mg medication, when appropriate to do so.

Famotidine - Side Effects

Famotidine medication should not be used until one consults with one's medical provider and pharmacist about risks and possible side effects that can result from medication use. Side effects from famotidine use include constipation, headache, diarrhea and dizziness but famotidine is generally tolerated well. Famotidine can interact with other medications and care should be taken when prescribed with other drugs concomitantly. Famotidine and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to famotidine prescription medication, or other H2 receptor antagonist medications should not use famotidine tablets.
