Pepcid Ac


Recommended Posts

When you give pepcid along with antibiotics to prevent stomach upset, is it better to give them at the same time or give the pepcid a little before (I would guess 20-30 minutes), or does it not matter? I always advise people to give it, and am giving it to Neyla with her Clavamox now, but never bothered with the timing of it. Just curious. So far no stomach issues anyway.

I believe it is better to give it 20 mins. before. I was told to give it 20 mins. before food.

I give the Pepcid 30 minutes before feeding, then I give the meds after feeding.

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.
