CIMETIDINE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For GERD: “I was on Aciphex, a PPI medication for over ten years. Very worried about the very serious side effects, and successfully stopped taking it; however, I still had some reflux. I tried taking Tagamet OTC; and was happy to find that it’s very effective. It doesn’t have the total blocking effect of a PPI, but I no longer want that. Aciphex can cost as much as $300 a month if insurance doesn’t cover it; and mine doesn’t. Tagamet is something like $11.”

For Human Papilloma Virus: “Cimetidine was prescribed by my skin doctor after numerous freezing sessions on a plantar wart. There were no results and the wart persisted. The dose was 2x400mg daily which caused a weird and very itchy skin rash after 6 weeks of daily use. The rash went away right after discontinuing Cimetidine.The only thing the drug worked on was a persistent heart burn I had which went away while taking it..”

For Stomach Ulcer: “I have severe stomach ulcers, the pain is so unbearable that I sometimes vomit! One day a colleague recommended that I go buy Cimetidine and I was so happy because I got it over the counter with my medical aid! This is the best.”
