Can I take famotidine at any time of the day for heartburn rather than just take it at night?
Yes. My doctor has me on 20mg twice a day of famotidine.
I agree you can take it during the day. Be careful if it makes you sleepy. I didn't make me sleepy at all but it does some people. I take mine at any given time. Although I should take it at the same time everyday.
I just weaned myself off of aciphex. And now take nizatidine twice a day but you should talk to your doctor because when I take it I have to start with 40 mg twice a day then slowly drop to 20 mg twice a day. I switch every 6 months from a ppi to an h2 block but I'm luck in that every type of Gerd medicine works for me.
