Famotidine Indication

Famotidine, generic option for Pepcid, is a medication that decreases the amount of acid produced by the stomach. This helps prevent and treat ulcers in the stomach and the intestines. Additionally, Famotidine treats conditions that produce too much acid, and other conditions that cause acid from the stomach to back up into the esophagus.

Storage

  • Throw away any unused Pepcid liquid after 30 days.
