Pepcid AC side effects?
Took some Pepcid for some heartburn I've been having. Took it at 5pm, and now 10:30 notice a really dry mouth and fatigue. Reading online sounds like these two side effects aren't common, but do happen. Any idea how long it will take for the dry mouth to go away? It's annoying!! Asked by Carley Kotcher 1 year ago.

Dry mouth and fatigue are both listed side effects of famotidine (Pepcid and Pepcid AC). The side effects would likely last until most of the drug is metabolized. The half-life of famotidine is 3.5 hours ... and half life means the amount of time that it takes for half of the drug in your system to be metabolized. After that, half of what's left is metabolized in 3.5 hours, half of that in 3.5 hours, and so on. The side effects would probably last about 4-5 hours after taking the medication. There would still be some of the drug in your system, but not enough to cause the symptoms. Answered by Judith Bahrmasel 1 year ago.

Is pepcid ac like pepsin?
My husband brought home pepcid ac for me, the nurse said to take pepsin tablets. Is that basically the same thing? Asked by Chelsie Imbier 1 year ago.

No, they are not the same. Pepsid ac is an other-the-counter pill that decreases the amount of acid produced by the stomach. It is used for people with acid reflux or heartburn. Pepsin is an enzyme that the body produces to digest food. Pepsid and pepsin sound very much a like and they are very easily confused. If you are having trouble with your stomach, it is probably the pepsid that you are to be taking. Best thing is to call the nurse and get it clarified. Answered by Janeth Delasancha 1 year ago.


Are there any long term side effects for taking Pepcid AC for the "Asian glow"?
Asked by Clinton Auer 1 year ago.

No, there are no long terms effects of taking Pepcid AC for the flushing caused by alcohol - but Pepcid oinly covers up the symptoms...it's no cure. The flushing is caused by an inability to properly metabolize ethanol due to a reduced level of the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase. This enzyme normally breaks down one of the alcohol metabolites known as acetaldehyde. Pepcid AC is actually a histamine blocker, and some people (there are no scientific studies) think that it reduces the severity of flushing symptoms. However, you will still have the same potentially dangerous levels of acetaldehyde in the blood - just not have the symptoms to go along with it. So, if you flush, taking Pepcid AC isn't itself risky, but the acetaldehyde that causes it will still be there. Answered by Andrew Wykle 1 year ago.

She sleeping now, which in the morning she's usually a devil. I hear noises coming from her stomach, and want to relieve her tummy ache. If I give her 1/4 of pill of pepcid ac, will that make it worse? Or should I just let her ride it out? thanks! Rob Answered by Irmgard Slicer 1 year ago.

Pepcid AC (famotidine) is a drug that should normally be administered under the advice of a vet. Normally the dose is 0.25mg per pound, but just to be on the safe side, I'd check with your vet first. Human drugs can sometimes harm dogs since they're not intended for use with them. When she wakes up, just offer her some water and maybe hamburger with cooked rice. I have French Bulldogs who will often feel better after eating that mixture. Good Luck! I hope your puppy feels better! Answered by Eddie Eatman 1 year ago.

Do NOT give pepcid ac to your pup for this. You have NO idea why her tummy is doing this. If you don't know what the problem is you will probably make it worse diagnosing it yourself. That med is for reducing acid in the stomach and you have no evidence that she has extra acid in there. What if she IS trying to digest something tough and she needs all that acid? BTW Some dogs will vomit up some clear stuff when their stomach is totally empty. She might just be hungry and going through a growth spurt. Feed her a bit of her regular food and see how she does---keep track of her intake of food and water and her output. If she doesn't want to eat or vomits everything back up not long after eating give the vet a call. She could have eaten something (like a sock) and have an obstruction. If she does have something jammed in there and you give her an OTC human medicine you may create complications if the vet needs to give her meds or sedate her. She is probably just fine and hungry if it is just a small bit of vomit, so try a little bit of food and some water and see how she does....if she is obviously retching a great deal of fluid and bile and can't stop call the vet. FYI As a rule, if a dog vomits food up the advice is to withold food and water for a short time to allow the stomach to calm down. Answered by Mirta Horuath 1 year ago.

A lot of different things could be going on. *She could be allergic to her food. Try switching her to a higher quality gentle food. *She could be eating too much. Try feeding her in smaller amounts throughout the day. I agree with your decision to try and not give her pepcid ac. You could also try cooking REAL chicken and PLAIN rice. Mix just a tiny bit of carrots and peas in it for greens. You can also chop up wheat grass and add it in. Dogs eat grass when their stomach's are upset! If she doesn't get better, something else more serious may be going on. Start saving for the $40 vet visit and just the minimal amount of work to check up on her-- tell the vet about your financial situation and say you need to get the minimal amount of tests done for now. Remember, dogs would rather be in silent agony than upset or bother you, so watch her behavior and make sure she isn't in pain! p.s. pepcid ac is ok for dogs if you dose it correctly. however, it should not be used chronically. Answered by Phoebe Nair 1 year ago.

You can use tagamet, but I've never used pepcid (I don't have the ingredients in front of me to see if they're the same). I doubt that a 1/4 pill will hurt, or for that matter, help. It's such a small dose. My ridgeback puppy got a whole tagamet tab when she got into a bag of dogfood. 1/4 would have done nothing. Right now, I'd just let your puppy rest, keep water handy and don't feed for a day. Perhaps make some ground turkey, rice and cooked egg for a first meal. Offer just a small amount tomorrow and then another small amount a few hours later if she keeps it down. If she continues to vomit, I'd take her to the vet. Always better to be safe when it comes to puppies. Especially if you don't know what they got in to. Answered by Meghann Panagakos 1 year ago.

Don't give her any human medicine unless directed by a vet. Most vets have a very effective medicine that will calm a dog's stomach and make them stop puking. I would call the vet and check with them. Answered by Magaret Boatman 1 year ago.

The rumbling is a good thing. Just supply a lot of fresh water and let the body clear its self of toxins naturally. She will be OK. It's never a good idea to try and stop the symptoms. It can actually slow the healing process. Answered by Shelley Seagroves 1 year ago.

Never give your pet an OTC medicine unless your vet has told you to use it. If she isn't showing any signs of improvement in a 24 hour time period, you need to have her seen by a vet to make sure she doesn't get dehydrated. Answered by Shanae Abadi 1 year ago.

Best to take your dog to the vet. Dogs can often get a fatal type of bloating in the intestines. Best to be safe.She may not be able to get fluids past the bloated area and that is why the clear water is vomited up. Answered by Tiesha Hoage 1 year ago.


Are there long term side effects of pepcid ac taken with alcohol?
Asked by Arminda Vavro 1 year ago.

Famotidine or pepcid ac can be taken with alcohol as it does not affect the enzyme gastric alcohol dehydrogenase.It means that blood ethanol level remains the same, as famotidine does not affect the enzyme, and can concominantly be consumed.Long time side-effects depend upon the dosage and are specific to pepcid ac and not related to alcohol. During marketed use of prescription doses, which are higher than those recommended for nonprescription use, the following adverse reactions have been reported; urticaria, liver enzyme abnormalities, cholestatic jaundice, anaphylaxis, angioedema.

Can I take Pepcid AC (max strength) and Prilosec OTC at the same time for peptic ulcers?
Can I take Pepcid AC (max strength) and Prilosec OTC at the same time for peptic ulcers? Is this too much? Will it harm me? Asked by Tennie Castillio 1 year ago.

They work by different mechanisms. I am a pharmacist and when my insurance would not cover the "Prilosec like" drug, my doctor gave me samples to take in the morning and a prescription for a "pepcid like" drug, to take at bedtime. Don't just take this stuff for the rest of your life. I completely changed my diet to a no grain diet and a whole foods diet, and have not needed either drug, for more than a year. I also quite taking 6 other drugs, so who knows what the key was. So doctors think that many stomach problems are caused by too little acid. I think Celtic Sea Salt was part of my success.

Mix just a tiny bit of carrots and peas in it for greens. You can also chop up wheat grass and add it in. Dogs eat grass when their stomach's are upset! If she doesn't get better, something else more serious may be going on. Start saving for the $40 vet visit and just the minimal amount of work to check up on her-- tell the vet about your financial situation and say you need to get the minimal amount of tests done for now. Remember, dogs would rather be in silent agony than upset or bother you, so watch her behavior and make sure she isn't in pain! p.s. pepcid ac is ok for dogs if you dose it correctly. however, it should not be used chronically. Answered by Yung Barter 1 year ago.

You can use tagamet, but I've never used pepcid (I don't have the ingredients in front of me to see if they're the same). I doubt that a 1/4 pill will hurt, or for that matter, help. It's such a small dose. My ridgeback puppy got a whole tagamet tab when she got into a bag of dogfood. 1/4 would have done nothing. Right now, I'd just let your puppy rest, keep water handy and don't feed for a day. Perhaps make some ground turkey, rice and cooked egg for a first meal. Offer just a small amount tomorrow and then another small amount a few hours later if she keeps it down. If she continues to vomit, I'd take her to the vet. Always better to be safe when it comes to puppies. Especially if you don't know what they got in to. Answered by Han Boron 1 year ago.

Don't give her any human medicine unless directed by a vet. Most vets have a very effective medicine that will calm a dog's stomach and make them stop puking. I would call the vet and check with them. Answered by Kayleigh Kamerling 1 year ago.

The rumbling is a good thing. Just supply a lot of fresh water and let the body clear its self of toxins naturally. She will be OK. It's never a good idea to try and stop the symptoms. It can actually slow the healing process. Answered by Dara Padget 1 year ago.

Never give your pet an OTC medicine unless your vet has told you to use it. If she isn't showing any signs of improvement in a 24 hour time period, you need to have her seen by a vet to make sure she doesn't get dehydrated. Answered by Mariela Summerlot 1 year ago.

Best to take your dog to the vet. Dogs can often get a fatal type of bloating in the intestines. Best to be safe.She may not be able to get fluids past the bloated area and that is why the clear water is vomited up. Answered by Alvina Kaehler 1 year ago.


Are there long term side effects of pepcid ac taken with alcohol?
Asked by Allen Ebanks 1 year ago.

Famotidine or pepcid ac can be taken with alcohol as it does not affect the enzyme gastric alcohol dehydrogenase.It means that blood ethanol level remains the same, as famotidine does not affect the enzyme, and can concominantly be consumed.Long time side-effects depend upon the dosage and are specific to pepcid ac and not related to alcohol. During marketed use of prescription doses, which are higher than those recommended for nonprescription use, the following adverse reactions have been reported; urticaria, liver enzyme abnormalities, cholestatic jaundice, anaphylaxis, angioedema. Answered by Abbey Christofferse 1 year ago.

There are potentially very serious side-effects from the use of Pepcid AC, they include: 1) Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) 2) Vitamin B12 deficiency (which can cause anemia and permanent peripheral neuropathies) 3) Vitamin and Mineral malabsorption (e.g. calcium, zinc, iron, etc.) So, 'buyer beware'. Best wishes and good luck. Answered by Boyd Rohrdanz 1 year ago.


Can I take Pepcid AC (max strength) and Prilosec OTC at the same time for peptic ulcers?
Can I take Pepcid AC (max strength) and Prilosec OTC at the same time for peptic ulcers? Is this too much? Will it harm me? Asked by Rosana Quezergue 1 year ago.

They work by different mechanisms. I am a pharmacist and when my insurance would not cover the "Prilosec like" drug, my doctor gave me samples to take in the morning and a prescription for a "pepcid like" drug, to take at bedtime. Don't just take this stuff for the rest of your life. I completely changed my diet to a no grain diet and a whole foods diet, and have not needed either drug, for more than a year. I also quite taking 6 other drugs, so who knows what the key was. So doctors think that many stomach problems are caused by too little acid. I think Celtic Sea Salt was part of my success. Good luck Answered by Sade Weldin 1 year ago.

Pepcid Ac Otc Answered by Libbie Wrenn 1 year ago.

Pepcid AC is a histamine-2 blocker and Prilosec is a proton pump inhibitor. Sometimes these are used together. However you shouldn't mix drugs without consulting a pharmacist. And in the case of peptic ulcer you would want to be under the care of a physician. Answered by September Wryals 1 year ago.
