Is it Famotidine?

If yes, then its used for:

1. Short-term treatment of active duodenal ulcer.
2. Maintenance therapy for duodenal ulcer patients at reduced dosage after healing of an active ulcer. Controlled studies in adults have not extended beyond one year.
3. Short-term treatment of active benign gastric ulcer. Most adult patients heal within 6 weeks. Studies have not assessed the safety or efficacy of famotidine in uncomplicated active benign gastric ulcer for periods of more than 8 weeks.
4. Short-term treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Famotidine is indicated for short-term treatment of patients with symptoms of GERD.

Famotidine is also indicated for the short-term treatment of esophagitis due to GERD including erosive or ulcerative disease diagnosed by endoscopy.

5. Treatment of pathological hypersecretory conditions (e.g., Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome, multiple endocrine adenomas).

However, please do check it with your doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med, take care.
