Duexis Overview

Famotidine, sold under the trade name Pepcid among others, is a histamine H2 receptor antagonist that inhibits stomach acid production.

duexis alternative

I have severe bone spurs on my heels and I have been on Duexis for a few years, cutting the dosage to two pills daily from the recommended three. I have recently experienced shortness of breath and cardial infarction symptoms, which I will be getting checked. I recently, because of an annoying rebate program through Horizon Pharma, switched over to ibuprofen and famotidine tabs in an 800/20 mg combination. I read just today that nsaids are now connected to cardial infarction in persons with high propensity (myself). Is it okay for me to reduce the mg of the ibuprofen intake (maintaining the 20mg famotidine) and by how much? ## Hello Matthew, I'm terribly sorry to hear about your situation. Ibuprofen is used to treat pain, inflammation and reduce fevers. Unfortunately I am not certai...

I have a wisdom tooth that's acting up really bad and i've used everything I can think about I haven't been to my dentist yet but I'm in so much pain that I would take anything right about now just for this pain to go away so can I take duexis? ## I am so very sorry about the pain that you're in.

heartburn

I have had trouble with all of the NSAIDS for years which I previously had taken for my arthritis. I started Duexis in September and have had good relief with only one a day. Recently the heartburn has returned. I am not sure if I should just stop, reduce it to every other day or third day, increase tums. Anyone with similar issues. ## Hello, June! How are you?
