Pepcid AC provides relief from the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion with just one small tablet. It has been clinically proven to control excess stomach acid for nine hours throughout the day and for 12 hours throughout the night. The active ingredient in your medicine is famotidine. This belongs to a group of medicines known as “H2 blockers”. Unlike antacids which neutralise acids, famotidine controls the production of excess acid and treats the cause of pain and discomfort.
