In brief: Reduces stomach acid

Tagamet ( cimetidine) reduces production of stomach acid through blocking h2 receptors on the gastric parietal cell.
This helps reduce aid indigestion / heartburn and can help heal erosions of the lining of either the esophagus or stomach. The h2 blockers are not as potent as the proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole.
