Pepcid (famotidine) is a brand name for the drug famotidine, which is a type of medication called a histamine-2 (H2) blocker. It works by reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach, which can help to relieve symptoms of acid reflux and heartburn.

- Peptic ulcer disease: a condition in which there is a sore in the lining of the stomach or small intestine.
- Zollinger-Ellison syndrome: a rare condition in which tumors in the pancreas or duodenum cause the stomach to produce too much acid.
