Tagamet Drug Information

Tagamet® (cimetidine) is a medication used to treat conditions related to the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. It is available by prescription or over-the-counter (OTC). The prescription form is used to treat ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and pathological hypersecretory conditions, while the nonprescription form is approved for treating acid indigestion, heartburn, and sour stomach.
 
In order to determine if Tagamet is the right drug for you, your healthcare provider needs information on your complete medical history and any other medicines you are taking -- including nonprescription products, vitamins, and supplements. This drug is not right for everyone, and it can react negatively with certain medications.
 
Tagamet comes in tablet form and is taken one to four times a day, depending on the condition being treated.
