  1. Treatment and Prevention of Ulcers: Pepcid is used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines. It is also indicated for the short-term treatment of active duodenal ulcer and the short-term treatment of active benign gastric ulcer. Additionally, it is used for maintenance therapy for duodenal ulcer patients at reduced dosage after healing of an active ulcer.
  2. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD): Pepcid is indicated for the short-term treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It provides relief for patients with symptoms of GERD.
