In brief: An acid blocker

Famotidine is one of a class of drugs called h2 (histamine-2) receptor blockers--it dials down stomach acid production in a dose-dependent manner (e.
g. More drug, less acid). First prescribed > 25 years ago, it is now available in lower dose as an over-the-counter acid remedy.
