What is famotidine?
FAMOTIDINE is a type of antihistamine that blocks the release of stomach acid. Famotidine is used to treat stomach and intestinal ulcers. Famotidine can relieve ulcer pain and discomfort. Famotidine is also used to control acid reflux (heartburn). Generic famotidine oral suspension is not yet available.

What should I tell my health care provider before I take Famotidine?
They need to know if you have any of these conditions:

  • an alcohol abuse probem

    kidney disease

    liver disease

    other chronic illness

    an unusual or allergic reaction to famotidine, other medicines, foods, dyes, or preservatives

    pregnant or trying to get pregnant

    breast-feeding

     

    How should I take Famotidine?
    Take famotidine oral suspension by mouth. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Shake the bottle for 5 to 10 seconds. Use a specially marked spoon or container to measure your medicine. Ask your pharmacist if you do not have one; household spoons are not always accurate. If you only take famotidine once a day, take it at bedtime. Take your doses at regular intervals. Do not take Famotidine more often than directed.

    Contact your pediatrician or health care professional regarding the use of Famotidine in children. Special care may be needed.

    What if I miss a dose?
    If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, take only that dose. Do not take double or extra doses.

    What drug(s) may interact with famotidine?

    cefditoren

    cefpodoxime

    cefuroxime

    delavirdine

    itraconazole

    ketoconazole

    metformin

    theophylline


    Tell your prescriber or health care professional about all other medicines you are taking, including non-prescription medicines, nutritional supplements, or herbal products. Also tell your prescriber or health care professional if you are a frequent user of drinks with caffeine or alcohol, if you smoke, or if you use illegal drugs. These may affect the way your medicine works. Check with your health care professional before stopping or starting any of your medicines.

     

    What side effects may I notice from taking famotidine?
    Side effects that you should report to your prescriber or health care professional as soon as possible:
    Rare or uncommon:

    confusion

    hallucinations

    skin rash, itching


    Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your prescriber or health care professional if they continue or are bothersome):

    agitation, nervousness

    constipation

    diarrhea

    dizziness

    headache

    nausea

     

    What should I watch for while taking famotidine?
    Tell your prescriber or health care professional if your condition does not improve or gets worse. Finish the full course of suspension prescribed, even if you feel better.

    Do not self-medicate with aspirin, ibuprofen or other antiinflammatory medicines; these can aggravate your condition.

    Do not smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol; these increase irritation in your stomach and can lengthen the time it will take for ulcers to heal. Cigarettes and alcohol can also worsen acid reflux or heartburn.

    If you need to take an antacid you should take it at least 1 hour before or 1 hour after famotidine. Famotidine will not be as effective if taken at the same time as an antacid.

    If you get black, tarry stools or vomit up what looks like coffee grounds, call your prescriber or health care professional at once. You may have a bleeding ulcer.

    Where can I keep Famotidine?
    Keep out of the reach of children in a container that small children cannot open
