Famotidine : Although famotidine can rarely cause diarrhea, the fact that you can take it on a regular basis without side effects make it more likely that today's episode is not due to the medication. If your diarrhea persists on a regular basis, you may need to switch medications. Drink plenty of fluids to remain well hydrated until the diarrhea passes. Good luck.
