Why do I need this medicine?
Famotidine is a gastric medicine.
It is used to treat conditions caused by excessive acidity in your stomach, such as stomach ulcers and reflux disease (also known as "heartburn", in which there is a backward flow of food or acid from your stomach into your mouth, leaving a sour or bitter taste).
Famotidine can also be used to relieve stomach irritation and ulceration caused by certain painkillers such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Famotidine treats these conditions by reducing the amount of acid your stomach makes.
What side effects could I experience?
Famotidine may cause headache, constipation, diarrhoea. These are usually temporary and should go away when Famotidine is stopped.
Famotidine may cause dizziness. If you feel dizzy, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.
Let your doctor know if these side effects bother you or if they do not go away.
Less commonly, Famotidine may cause other side effects. Consult your doctor if you experience unusual problems while being treated with Famotidine.
