Famotidine Description

You probably already know that heartburn has nothing to do with your heart, but with your stomach and the acid it produces. There are diet and lifestyle changes you can make to avoid heartburn, but it isn’t that easy for everyone. Some people produce too much stomach acid and it can make its way upwards and into your esophagus and cause a bitter taste in your mouth, wake you up at night, or cause your throat to be sore. This is referred to as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) that may result in painful irritation or damage to your esophageal lining, or stomach ulcers.

Blocking Histamine Receptors Can Reduce Acid Production

Famotidine is a histamine 2 (H2) receptor blocker that works to help reduce the amount of acid your stomach produces. Histamine is a compound that stimulates parietal cells in your stomach lining to produce acid in order to digest or break down the food you eat so your body can absorb it can pass through your body. If your parietal cells are over-producing stomach acid, it can begin to harm the protective mucus lining. Taking Famotidine will block the H2 receptors so acid production is reduced.

Conditions Treated by Famotidine

The majority of ulcers diagnosed are actually caused by the helicobacter pylori bacteria, or H. pylori. The risk of children becoming infected with H. pylori is higher because of poor hygiene habits. For the most part, most individuals will not even be aware of this bacteria in their gut. H. pylori can adapt to the environment as they are able to neutralize the acid. The spiral shape of H. pylori enables them to penetrate your stomach’s mucus lining and interfere with your immune response to their presence so they can thrive and irritate your stomach lining and cause sores or ulcers.

Before Famotidine is Prescribed

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding to be certain the ingredients of Famotidine generic or brand is safe for your unborn or nursing baby. Explain other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you are currently taking or using, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. Your doctor can then determine if Famotidine is the right medication for you. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Famotidine Precautions

Keep taking Famotidine as directed as it may take up to 8 weeks for ulcers to heal. If you still have symptoms of stomach pain, loss of appetite, gas/bloating, or vomiting after 6 weeks, revisit your doctor. Do not share Famotidine with anyone else, even they have the same symptoms. Keep Famotidine and other medications out of children’s reach and away from pets.
