UNDERSTAND THE 3 MAIN TYPES OF RELIEF

PEPCID® Products
Antacids

Antacids neutralize the acid in your stomach, yet don’t stop your stomach from making more.

Antacids start neutralizing acid in seconds and may last up to 3 hours on a full stomach.

H2 Blockers

H2 Blockers will lower the amount of acid your stomach produces, giving you lasting relief that goes to work quickly.

PEPCID AC® contains an H2 blocker that begins to work in 15 minutes and helps control acid all day or all night*. Dual Action PEPCID COMPLETE® combines an H2 Blocker with an antacid that starts neutralizing acid in seconds so you don’t have to choose between hurting now or hurting later.

PPIs

PPIs work by shutting down pumps that release acid into your stomach. PPIs are not intended for immediate relief of heartburn.

May take 1-4 days for full effect. Requires daily dosing for 14 days.
