Famosan Indication

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

Famosan 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.

Famosan Absorption

The bioavailability of oral doses is 40-45%.
