Cimetidine (Tagamet®) is a medication commonly used to treat conditions within the stomach, esophagus, and intestines. It comes in tablet and liquid form, and is available over-the-counter and by prescription. Prescription cimetidine is approved to treat ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and pathological hypersecretory conditions, while the non-prescription version is used for treating heartburn, indigestion, and sour stomach. Cimetidine works by blocking histamine in the stomach, which reduces the amount of acid produced.
