HOW PEPCID® WORKS DIFFERENTLY
PEPCID® is a histamine-2 blocker that works fast and lasts all day.* It contains famotidine, which helps relieve heartburn by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach.
THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF HEARTBURN MEDICATIONS:
Neutralize existing stomach acid but don’t stop the production of more acid.
HISTAMINE-2 BLOCKERS PEPCID®
Block the histamine receptors responsible for triggering acid production. PEPCID AC® prevents† and relieves heartburn.
PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS (PPIs)
Shut down pumps that release acid. OTC PPIs are not indicated for the prevention of heartburn, and may take 1-4 days to become fully effective.
