Famotidine is a potent an inhibitor of H 2 histamine receptors which main clinically significant pharmacological action is the suppression of stomach juice production. Famotidine reduces both the acidity of the juice and the volume of gastric production, while the production of pepsin remains proportional to the amount of secreted gastric juice.

Famotidine suppresses basal, nocturnal, stimulated by the introduction of pentagastrin, betazole, caffeine, insulin and the physiological reflex of the vagus nerve secretion of the stomach acid.

The duration of inhibition of secretion when using doses of 20 mg and 40 mg is from ten to twelve hours.

Famotidine almost does not affect gastrin levels on an empty stomach or after eating. The drug does not affect stomach emptying, pancreas function, blood flow in the liver and in the portal system.

Pharmacokinetics

Famotidine is rapidly absorbed. Oral bioavailability is 40-45%. Bioavailability does not change depending on the contents of the stomach, however, it decreases slightly when taking antacids.

Metabolism during the first passage through the liver has a weak effect on the bioavailability of the formulation.

The maximum plasma level is reached 1-3 hours after the intake. With repeated use, the cumulative effect does not occur. Protein binding is relatively low, 15-20%.

The washing out half-life is 2.3-3.5 hours. In severe renal failure, the half-life of famotidine may exceed 20 hours.

The metabolism of the medication occurs in the liver. The only metabolite found in humans is sulfoxide.

- Non-cancerous stomach ulcer.

Prevention of relapse of a duodenal ulcer

In order to avoid relapse after achieving an expected effect, the medication should be prescribed in a supportive dosage of 20 mg once a night for 1-4 weeks.

GERD

20 mg or 40 mg (based on how severe the symptoms are) twice a day for six to twelve weeks.

GERD with erosive esophagitis or an ulcer - 40 mg twice a day for six to twelve weeks.

For the prophylaxis of relapse of symptoms and erosion or ulceration related to GERD (supportive therapy): 20 mg 2 times a day.

Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome

The dose should be selected individually. Individuals who have not previously been prescribed antisecretory drugs should be prescribed an initial dose of 20 mg 4 times a day (every 6 hours). Patients who previously used other histamine H 2 receptor antagonists can immediately be assigned the highest initial dose of 40 mg every 6 hours. In the future, the dose should be altered based on the level of secretion of gastric juice, as well as the clinical condition of the patient. Treatment should be carried out while clinical symptoms of the disease are observed.

If necessary, the daily dose is gradually increased depending on individual characteristics, until the optimal dose is reached.

Overdose

Symptoms: vomiting, motor agitation, tremors, decreased blood pressure, tachycardia, and collapse may develop.

Treatment: discontinuation of the drug, stimulation of vomiting and/or gastric lavage. If necessary, appropriate symptomatic and supportive treatment can be used: intravenous administration of diazepam in case of trial, atropine in case of bradycardia and lidocaine in case of ventricular arrhythmia. Effective hemodialysis.

Adverse reactions of Pepcid

When you buy Famotidine keep in mind that it can cause adverse effects such as:

- Deviation from the norm of laboratory indicators;

- Blockade, arrhythmia, lowering blood pressure, bradycardia, tachycardia;

- Headache, dizziness, cramps, paresthesia, imbalance;

- Diarrhea, constipation, flatulence, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, dysgeusia, dry mouth, acute pancreatitis;

- Skin reactions: acne, urticaria, skin rash, hair loss, itching, erythema;

- Excitation, hallucinations, confusion, depression, fear, insomnia, drowsiness, decreased libido.

Interaction with other drugs and other types of interactions

- The absorption of certain drugs (for example, ketoconazole, amoxicillin, iron preparations) depends on the acidity of the gastric juice. Therefore, Famotidine must be taken at least 2 hours after taking such medicines.

- Concomitant use with other H 2 receptor antagonists can significantly reduce the effectiveness of tolazoline. Although there are no confirmed interactions between famotidine and tolazoline, the likelihood of their existence is quite high, so the effect of tolazoline should be checked at the beginning and after completion of concomitant treatment. In the case of a decrease in the effect of tolazoline, the dose should be gradually increased or discontinued treatment with Famotidine.

- Food and antacids have no significant effect on Famotidine.

- Probenecid may slow the release of Famotidine.

Special recommendations

- Before you buy generic Famotidine and start the treatment, it is necessary to exclude the presence of malignant neoplasms in the stomach and duodenum. Treatment with this medication may mask the symptoms of carcinoma of the stomach.

- In the case of liver failure, Famotidine should be used with caution and in low doses.

- Since cross-sensitivity between H 2 receptor antagonists has been reported, Famotidine is contraindicated in individuals with intolerance of other H 2 receptor antagonists.

Treatment with Famotidine cannot be carried out without a doctor's prescription or without a proper medical examination if:

- Patient suffers from kidney or liver disease (elderly patients or patients with impaired liver or kidney function may experience mental disorders (confusion) requiring a dose reduction);

- Patient suffers from concomitant diseases or takes other drugs at the same time;

- Patient of middle or old age first has complaints of digestive disorders or previous complaints have changed;

- Patient has complaints about the work of the stomach, the patient has lost weight;

- Black feces;

- Patient has swallowing disorders or chronic abdominal pain.

The drug should be used with caution in case of acute porphyria (including history) and immunodeficiency.

Symptoms of the duodenal ulcer may disappear within 1-2 weeks, but treatment should be continued until scarring is confirmed by endoscopic or X-ray examination.

Regular monitoring of the condition of patients is required (especially in elderly patients and patients with a history of gastric and/or duodenal ulcer), who use the drug in combination with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

If a dose is missed, it should be taken as soon as possible; do not double the dose if it is time to take the next dose.

Treatment with the drug should be started without a prior proper medical examination in the presence of heartburn, manifestations of a hyperacid state, stomach pain or hyperacid state after eating in elderly patients.

Patients should be warned that 1 tablet of Famotidine 20 mg contains lactose, therefore, patients with galactose intolerance, Lapp lactase deficiency or impaired glucose-galactose absorption should not use this drug.
