    Drug Description

    Pepсid reduces the amount of acid in the stomach with the treatment and prevention of ulcers in the stomach and intestines.

Other blockers are cimetidine H2 (Tagamet), ranitidine (Zantac) and nizatidine (Axid). Pepсid is used to treat gastric and duodenal ulcers, gastric hyperacidity, heartburn (related to the acidity of gastric juice), symptomatic gastrointestinal ulcers caused by stress, erosive reflux oesophagitis, gastropathy caused by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory treatment for drugs, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
