I have heard of individuals that had issues with warts but after taking tagment in a short time the warts disappeared

My daughter has been taking Tagamet (400 mgs a day) and multivitamin for 2 months with excellent results. She had 100's of warts on her feet, legs, arms, hands, mouth, face, eyelids. We had been going to Dermatologist for over 3 yrs, they tried everything, nothing worked. I took her to a different Dermatologist because this poor child was embarrassed to show her hands or even be sock free. This new Dermatologist prescribed Tagamet and the multivitamin and told us to give it 3 months, but we should start to see results within 3-4 weeks... we did. Two months later, she is wart free on her feet, arms, face, mouth, eye lids. She has only 3 warts left on her hands and they were the largest ones, they have shrunk to a 1/4 of the size they were and I expect they will be gone within the month. So YES!! Tagamet works.

Tagamet is a medication that reduces the amount of acid produced by the stomach. The prescription version of the drug is used to treat conditions such as gastric ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Tagamet HB (the over-the-counter version of the drug) is used to treat conditions such as heartburn. The most common side effects of the drug include headaches, dizziness, and drowsiness.
Tagamet for warts, you would have to seek advice from a doc, please.

Yes if you take tagamet for at least 7 days and use the cold version of an over the counter wart remover, I can't remember the brand of it, it will work.
My daughter had it treated by the freeze spray by the doctor 5 times and nothing happened. Out of frustration he said try taking tagamet and using Compound W OTC at the same time and it worked. We were shocked how quickly it worked especially after all the months of the doctor trying to freeze it off. Hope this helps someone.

Some studies have suggested cimetidine (Tagamet) is effective for multiple resistant warts, and many dermatologists believe this. However, a recent double-blind controlled study showed no beneficial effect compared with placebo. Supporters of this treatment feel it is more effective in children than adults. The dose is 20 to 40 mg per kg per day to a maximum of 3.5 g per day in adults. A three to four-month trial is usually undertaken.
