 1  Acid reflux I was having acid reflux prior to my gallbladder surgery so the doctor prescribed me this. It has made my anxiety shoot through the roof and gives me a sense of impending doom. After realizing what was causing it I called my doctor and she said it was safe to stop taking it at once. F 27 4 weeks
 1  Reflux and ibs Rapid heart beat, anxiety, nighttime wake-ups with anxiety and rapid pulse, headaches, pain near heart, rib pain. Did not realize these effects could be from this medicine until I read similar complaints. I've been off medicine 4 days and don't feel any better. Anyone take awhile to feel better? F 69 6 months

 1  acid reflux Drowsiness, chest pain, rapid heart rate, mood changes, confusion It worked great for the heartburn, but honestly, I'd rather have the acid reflux than to go through what I experienced with the drug. I was confused about simple things and thought I was losing my mind, very drowsy; experienced dosing while driving, heart palpitations and chest pain. Will NEVER use again. F 58 14 days

FAMOTIDINE  (FAMOTIDINE):  Famotidine is used to treat ulcers of the stomach and intestines and to prevent intestinal ulcers from coming back after they have healed. This medication is also used to treat certain stomach and throat (esophagus) problems (such as erosive esophagitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease-GERD, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as cough that doesn't go away, stomach pain, heartburn, and difficulty swallowing. Famotidine belongs to a class of drugs known as H2 blockers. This form of famotidine is given by vein and is used to treat these conditions for a short time when you cannot take the medication by mouth. Your doctor should switch you to taking this medication by mouth when possible.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
