Is pepcid (famotidine) safe for everyday use? Thinking of switching from prilosec to pepcid (famotidine)
Pepcid (famotidine) long term: short answer - yes but my concern is given you age - why are you requiring either a proton pump inhibitor (prilosec) or an H2 blocker (pepcid) on a regular basis?? Assuming you have a medical condition requiring acid suppression - long term use may be appropriate. However, if you are taking it without a clear diagnosis - you need to be seen and evaluated to determine what is wrong. ...Read more
Is it safe to take Pepcid (famotidine) AC or its generic version while on 140mg of methadone per day?
Yes: Pepcid is a common medication used for stomach acid symptoms. Zantac (ranitidine) and tagamet are similar, and all of them are now available over-the-counter and are known as "h-2 blockers". You can use it for treatment of indigestion and is ok to use with methadone, but if your stomach continues to bother you be sure to see your primary care physician. ...Read more
What form of medication or supplement gets absorbed fastest? I was thinking maybe chewable tablets or liquid gel capsules.
Varies: It depends upon what medication you are talking about. In general, however, fastest absorption is the sublingual route, where the medication is placed under the tongue.

If wondering about a specific medication, ask pharmacist! ...Read more

Best relief for acid reflux (in lower neck)? Usually 20mg of Pepcid (famotidine) AC works, but once in a while it's ineffective. Pepto? Prilosec? Mg pills?

If you need to use acid medications frequently you should consult with your doctor, since you may be suppressing something that needs to be diagnosed and addressed properly. ...Read more

Is there any over-the-counter acid reflux medicine stronger than Pepcid (famotidine) complete and prilose otc?
Sure...: Pepcid (famotidine) is an H2 blocker. That class of drugs relative to acid suppression is exceeded by the proton pump inhibitor (PPI) class, of which Prilosec was the first. Many subsequent PPI's have been introduced with longer durations of action. Although we can't endorse particular products on HealthTap, ask your pharmacist to recommend another PPI. Better yet, see your gastroenterologist for the right Rx. ...Read more
