WHAT IS PEPCID®?

PEPCID® is the original brand with the active ingredient famotidine which is a histamine-2 blocker (H2 blocker) that provides relief for occasional heartburn.

PEPCID® offers three main products that provide relief of occasional heartburn that you can take whenever you need. Original Strength PEPCID AC® and Maximum Strength PEPCID AC® contain an H2 blocker that begins to work in 15-30 minutes and helps control acid all day or all night.* PEPCID Complete® combines an H2 blocker with an antacid that starts neutralizing acid in your stomach in seconds, so it works even faster. Because the faster it starts relieving heartburn, the better.

What Is Famotidine?

Famotidine is a histamine-2 blocker. It works by decreasing the amount of acid the stomach produces by blocking the histamine receptors in your stomach responsible for triggering acid production.

Is PEPCID® Safe?

PEPCID® is the original famotidine brand and, for 35 years, has been effective and safe acid reducer when used as directed. PEPCID® is clinically proven to provide heartburn relief and is backed by 50+ clinical studies. PEPCID® is the #1 doctor recommended acid reducer brand in the market.
