Famotidine (Pepcid) - 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 in the area who can prescribe Pepcid AC when appropriate to do so.
What Is Famotidine Used For?
Famotidine (Pepcid), like cimetidine, belongs to a class of medications known as histamine-2 (H2) receptor antagonists. As Pepcid, famotidine 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, Pepcid usually starts exerting its effects within one hour with maximum concentrations achieved within 180 minutes. Famotidine is combined with the medication ibuprofen in Duexis.
Famotidine - Dosage and Cost
As Pepcid, famotidine 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). Pepcid 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 Pepcid is affordable, costing under $10 for 60 famotidine 20 mg tablets at many pharmacies in the United States. In addition, famotidine (Pepcid) coupons may be available online and some insurance plans may cover the cost when one buys Pepcid from a pharmacy using a prescription.
Can I Buy Famotidine Online?
Famotidine (Pepcid) 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 Pepcid, one cannot just buy famotidine online without getting a prescription. People who need a famotidine prescription are able to use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Pepcid AC when appropriate to do so.
Famotidine - Side Effects
Famotidine (Pepcid) 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. 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, Pepcid, or other H2 receptor antagonist medications should not use famotidine.
