Famonit Indication

For the treatment of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Famonit Pharmacology

Famotidine, a competitive histamine H2-receptor antagonist, is used to treat gastrointestinal disorders such as gastric or duodenal ulcer, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and pathological hypersecretory conditions. Famotidine inhibits many of the isoenzymes of the hepatic CYP450 enzyme system. Other actions of Famotidine include an increase in gastric bacterial flora such as nitrate-reducing organisms.

Famonit Absorption

The bioavailability of oral doses is 40-45%.

Famonit Patient Information

Famotidine is used to treat stomach and duodenal (upper small intestine) ulcers;
hypersecretory (increased acid secretion) conditions; heartburn and gastroesophageal
