Reviews for Pepcid
- Taken for 1 to 6 months

For Hiatal Hernia "Famotidine /pepcid, made matters much worse concerning my hiatal hernia. The first couple of weeks it seemed to help, after that it was all downhill. Saw an immediate improvement once I went off it. I am now doing apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons with 3 drops of stevia in a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon. Feel so much better off pepsin and Omeprazole. I also take 2 teaspoons of aloe vera juice for quick relief when needed. Neither can cause side effects if not overdone."

For GERD "I had been taking Ranitidine (300mg twice a day), but after that was recalled, I tried Pepcid Complete. It seemed to work for a month or so, taking one in the morning, and one in the evening. But then the acid reflux continued to be a problem so I am here looking at others drug reviews. On the Pepcid website it states: PEPCID® products are not indicated for the treatment of GERD. I am going to try my luck with Prilosec OTC, based on the reviews that gets on this site."

"I was put on Pepcid for Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and it caused low mood, constipation, and heartburn which I did not have before taking. I need the H2 for histamine blockage, Pepcid is not the one to help me."
