A member asked:

How do i get off taking famotidine after taking it for months. without pain returning.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Depends: Assuming you have reflux that is being controlled with famotidine, coming off of it can cause symptoms to worsen. Diet modification, eating small frequent meals, minimizing alcohol, caffeine, spicy foods are some measures to try. Proton pump inhibitors (I.e. Prilosec) can work well. You may want to see your primary doctor or GI doctor if you have longstanding reflux. An endoscopy may be indicated
