Are there any Precautions and Drug Interactions for Famotidine?


Before taking Famotidine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it or other H2 blockers (such as cimetidine, ranitidine); or any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. While taking Famotidine, you may feel dizzy or have a headache. Do not drive or operate heavy machines until you are sure that your ability is not affected. It is essential to take Famotidine for as long as your doctor has told you to, even if your ulcer has subsided. If you have any other questions about this medication, we always suggest you have an open conversation with your doctor or pharmacist.

You should not use Famotidine and inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have or have had:

Talk to a doctor about the best treatment option for the ulcer you may have.

Tell your doctor about all the medications you use, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, herbal products, and vitamin supplements to prevent drug interactions, which might be fatal to your health.
