Pepcid is a life saver for heartburn. It’s always in my luggage during our travel to prevent any acid indigestion and/or heartburn. This also helps with my stomach after eating spicy foods.

I decided to try this brand to help relieve my heartburn and it still hasn't helped. I am now experiencing nausea and an upset stomach due to the acid.

Famotidine is known as an H2 blocker. It works by reducing the amount of acid in your stomach. It is used to prevent and treat heartburn and other symptoms caused by too much acid in the stomach. This stuff works well for heartburn symptoms.Pepcid Ac Maximum Strength

Helps me with my indigestion, if I take it at least 15-20 minutes before I eat something that usually upsets my stomach, it’s a good product but quite expensive but well worth the price

About once a year I go through a period where I get really bad heartburn and I rely on Pepcid during those times. It’s one of the better medications I have taken and it’s affordable. I buy it once a year!
