: I have been on Pepcid for about 10 years. I take 10mg, once a day. I take 20mg. (2X10) if I do something stupid like eating too late. I am concerned that I may develope reactions to the drug that are not good. So far nothing else comes even close to the effectiveness of Pepcid. If I rarely forget to take a pill before going to bed, I'll be up within two hours to take one. Is there anything else to try. Zantac is of no value to me.

What type of foods are you eating? You may want to consider a high protein, very low carbohydrate diet. I'd bet that this alone would significantly reduce your acid problem. Also, what is your blood type? From the description it sounds like Type O and you eat a lot of carbohydrates, especially wheat products.
