What is Famocid 20 mg?

20mg of Famocid contains Famotidine, which belongs to a class of drugs known as H2 receptor antagonists.

Doctors also prescribe Famotidine to treat and prevent stomach ulcers, reflux disease, and other rare conditions.

After a valid prescription from the doctor, Famocid can be purchased from licensed drugstores.

What are the uses of Famocid 20mg?

Doctors prescribe Famocid 20mg for:

Treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease

Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a chronic disorder in which heartburn occurs more often than just occasionally. It happens when a muscle above your stomach relaxes too much, allowing stomach content to come back into your esophagus and mouth.

Treatment of peptic ulcer disease

Stomach ulcers are generally caused by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or by bacteria known as Helicobacter pylori. Both break down your stomach's defence against the acid it produces to digest your food, further damaging your stomach and allowing an ulcer to form.

Treatment of heartburn

Heartburn is a burning feeling in your chest caused by stomach acids that travel back up toward the throat and mouth.
