When you have heartburn, the faster you can find relief, the better. At Rocky Mountain IV Medics, we offer Pepcid as an add-in to our personalized IV packages to help those who struggle with acid reflux, ulcers and indigestion.
Churning stomach acids can be extremely uncomfortable. Your symptoms could range from a sour or bitter taste in your mouth to a burning or painful sensation in your chest and throat. Pepcid IV therapy can help neutralize acidity to bring almost instant relief.
What Is Pepcid?
Pepcid is one of the most popular heartburn relief medications in the world. This brand's active ingredient is famotidine — a powerful histamine-2 (H2) blocker that reduces the amount of acid in the stomach. Histamine is a compound released by your cells, and it's your body's way of telling you that it doesn't like something you consumed. One way histamine causes your body to react is by stimulating gastric acid secretion — it churns up your stomach acid.
As an H2 blocker, Pepcid blocks the action of histamine, reducing the production of acid and bringing relief to acid reflux-related symptoms.
Pepcid IV Therapy Benefits
Although Pepcid is available in over-the-counter tablet form, IV therapy delivers the famotidine directly into your bloodstream. This allows the H2 blocker to have nearly instantaneous effects, treating your heartburn or ingestion almost immediately.
Here are some of the incredible Pepcid benefits you will experience when you choose this powerful antacid as part of your at-home IV therapy.
Treats Stomach and Intestinal Ulcers
Stomach acid can damage the lining of your stomach, small intestine or even esophagus. This damage is called an ulcer. To heal an ulcer, you must reduce stomach acid production. That's where Pepcid comes in. Famotidine is extremely useful in promoting the healing of both stomach and intestinal ulcers as well as preventing future ulcers.
Fights Acid Reflux
Acid reflux occurs when your stomach acid begins to back up into your esophagus, irritating the sensitive tissue. If you experience acid reflux two times a week or more, you may have a chronic form of acid reflux known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). By decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes, Pepcid can prevent many of the symptoms associated with acid reflux, including:
- Upset stomach.
- Nausea after eating.
- Feeling full.
- A bitter taste in the mouth.
- Tightness in the throat.
- Dry cough or wheezing.
Prevents Heartburn and Indigestion
Heartburn is a symptom of acid reflux that describes the burning or painful sensation in the chest caused by churning stomach acids. On the other hand, indigestion is a feeling of bloating, gassiness or nausea, or a sensation of fullness after eating. If you experience these symptoms regularly, you can use Pepcid preventively to bring relief.
