Ask your Dr. about the following (it´s availability is Rx/OTC):
What is famotidine?
Famotidine a histamine-2 blockers. Famotidine works by decreasing the amount of acid the stomach produces.
Famotidine is used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines. It also treats conditions in which the stomach produces too much acid, such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Famotidine also treats gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other conditions in which acid backs up from the stomach into the esophagus, causing heartburn.
Famotidine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Perhaps this med will help you, it has helped me, but we , as you react to meds differently.-
Best of luck,
