21 w/ weekly recurring bouts of nausea and diarrhea + bloated + gas. Take Pepcid (famotidine) every day. Thinking excessive use of antacid? Clean endoscopy
Pepcid (famotidine) use: Pepcid will tell the parietal cells in the lining of your stomach to not produce so much acid. It has nothing to do with diarrhea or gas production.
