Reviews for Famotidine
For Allergic Urticaria: "I took Zyrtec everyday for a month and saw zero improvement with my sudden outbreak of hives. Then I was advised to take double doses of Zyrtec AND Allegra. Only thing I got was sleepy. I've been taking Famotidine for three days. I saw almost immediate results. Today is day 3, and all my hives are gone. The itching is virtually gone. Even the dark spots the hives were leaving behind before seem to be fading. I haven't noticed any side effects except my extreme joy that something finally worked!"

For GERD: "I have GERD, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. For my GERD, it is cheaper to buy OTC medicines rather than prescription version. I take famotidine 10mg tablets twice day before meals. I take this along with 200mg Cimetidine. For the cimetidine I take 2 tablets twice a day. This therapy works great for me and my doctor is glad I finally found a relief."

Pepcid (famotidine) for GERD: "I took Pepcid and Pepcid AC for years but like all Gas pills One pill could make me my stools solid "constipation" like for a couple of days."

For GERD: "So far, famotidine is working great for my chronic GERD, acid reflux. I also made life changing eating habits and added even more exercise to my routine but I still have this condition. Also, need to eat more frequently every 2-3 hours, small snacks and meals really helps. I usually take one of these when I feel it coming on, usually in between meals and it quickly calms it. I only take one a day and then if I feel it at night after dinner or right before bed I take 150mg Zantac (ranitidine). I try to limit to only ONE 20mg famotidine and ONE 150mg Zantac a day. Seems to work quite well. Too much of any PPI or H2 blockers and you can reverse the process of what you're trying to achieve. I only take a couple Tums when in desperate need."

For GERD: "I used to take famotidine 20mg 2 x daily and it did the job. Now I need it every 5 to 6 hrs for relief. So I decided to use Pepto-bismal yesterday morning at 8 and it worked very well and lasted until about 9pm. Then I took a Pepcid that night, but it doesn't work for me like it use to."

For Allergic Urticaria: "I just started taking it but I'm already seeing results. When I read that a lesser side effect was muscle cramps it bothered me a little. But, otherwise I'm seeing almost instant results."

Pepcid AC Chewable Tablets (famotidine) for : "It worked rather quickly for me. Within a 1/2 hour I was feeling significantly better. I did however experience brief chest pain and tightness and a bit dizzy about 20 minutes after taking it. I've only taken one dose so far and hope that I'll be able to continue taking this as treatment for abdominal pain suspect of a peptic ulcer."

For GERD: "I was a huge Tums eater with little success. At night while lying down I'd have the acid come up all the way to my nose - quite a burning, nasty sensation. It would appear that this little 20 mg pill makes ALL the difference. I take it about an hour before my evening meal. So far it has performed incredibly well - I've not had any GERD (acid reflux) even after a 4 taco with heavy onion and salsa dinner plus 3 beers."
