Drug InteractionsFamotidine can potentially interact with a few other medicines (see Drug Interactions With Famotidine).
Are There Alternatives?Famotidine is quite effective at treating GERD, ulcers, or other digestive problems. It is also generally well tolerated. However, side effects may occur during treatment or the medicine may not work as well as needed. In these cases, your healthcare provider may recommend an alternative. Some examples of substitute medications include:
- Low blood pressure (hypotension)
- A rapid heart rate (tachycardia).
