Cimetidine (Tagamet®) is a drug often used for treating conditions within the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. The prescription version of the medication is licensed to treat ulcers, GERD, and pathological hypersecretory conditions, while the over-the-counter version is approved to treat acid indigestion, sour stomach, and heartburn. Both forms work by blocking histamine in the stomach, which reduces acid production. Some of the side effects that have been reported with cimetidine include breast enlargement in men, dizziness, and diarrhea.
