Famotadine Same As Pepcid Ac?

Recommended Posts

Yes, famotidine is the generic -- exactly the same thing :) . 1 regular strength Pepcid = 10mg famotidine. The Walgreen's version is usually called "Acid Controller."


I usually give 10mg twice a day. You can give more, but might want to consult your vet about that.

Yes, it is the same thing, Wal-mart brand calls it Acid Controller and it's generic is Famotidine. You can get either 10 or 20 mgs. I use the 10mg for Curfew, as I give (1) twice daily, and the 20 mg on Goldie, as I give it with her Deramaxx. The generics are a GREAT buy! DH is going to Wal-mart tomorrow (*I HATE that place)!!!, to get more of the 10 mg, and some generic Gas-X, too.
