GERD Home > Famotidine Alternatives
If you experience unwanted side effects while taking famotidine, or if your condition is not being helped by the medicine, you may need to try an alternative to famotidine. Common alternatives include dietary changes, other medications, and (in extreme cases) surgery. Some examples of medications that are often used as famotidine alternatives include other H2 blockers (such as cimetidine), antacids and foaming agents (such as Maalox or Alka-Seltzer), and proton pump inhibitors (such as omeprazole).
