Famotidine Overview

Famotidine, sold under the trade name Pepcid among others is a histamine H2 receptor antagonist that inhibits stomach acid production. It is commonly used in the treatment of peptic ulcer disease and gastroesophageal reflux disease. Unlike cimetidine, the first H2 antagonist, famotidine has no effect on the cytochrome P450 enzyme system, and does not appear to interact with other drugs.[2] It was discovered in 1979.[3] Contents 1 Medical uses 1.1 Preparations 2 Side effects 3 Histor...

I have been on famotidine for about 6 weeks and the one side effect ringing in the ears are horrible. The ringing is so loud, I'm thinking of not taking it anymore. ## Hello, Kathy! How are you doing? Has there been any change? The FDA does list that as a possible side effect of this medication, along with nausea, flatulence, and dizziness. Have you informed your medical provider? There are other antacids that you can try to see if they may work better for you.

I found some pills in my cabinet that are small, white, round with 4617 on one side. The other side was blank. What could these be? ## I'm betting that if you flip the pill around, you'll see that the marking is actually L194. Can you check on that please?

Hell Identity a Circular Peach Pill
1 Reply RSS
It is a small, circular, peach colored pill that has the number 20 stamped on one side, and the other side is uninscribed. There are no scorings or other markings. The '20' appears to be stamped in Helvetica. When chipped with a razor, the peach color is a thin coating that rubs off easily. Any thoughts? ## This imprint is rather obscure, so I can't be completely sure… However, I have had a 20mg Famotidine tablet that matches this description. It is classified by the FDA as an antacid, a generic for Pepcid, that is used to treat or prevent heartburn, GERD, ulcers and gastritis. Typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness and flatulence. I'll keep looking to see if I can confirm this. Does anyone else recognize this tablet?
