Vitamin Add-Ins: Pepcid

If you ask us, there’s nothing better than sharing good food with good friends. Whether it’s a tailgate, weekend barbecue, or date night with someone special, there’s just something great about indulging your taste buds with the people you love. That is, until that good food causes bad heartburn.

Heartburn is not a fun thing to go through. If you suffer from heartburn, you probably know how its uncomfortable symptoms can easily ruin your day or lead to a sleepless night. You may have tried a few home remedies for acid reflux and heartburn, or even taken over-the-counter or prescribed medications that didn’t help you much. 

If you’re at a loss for what to do to get rid of heartburn and acid reflux, Mobile IV Nurses can help with Pepcid IV therapy.

Luckily, you can avoid the burning chest, sour taste in your mouth, and pain associated with heartburn — all you need is a Pepcid IV push from Mobile IV Nurses! We offer this IV drip in all the areas we serve, so you can enjoy fast and effective heartburn relief. 

What is Pepcid?

Pepcid is one of the most popular heartburn medications. It works by targeting histamines, which your body produces when you eat something that could trigger a bad reaction. These histamines interact with your stomach acids, churning them up until they lead to all kinds of acid-reflux symptoms, including:

  • Upset stomach or nausea
  • Belching
  • Bloating
  • A bitter taste in the mouth
  • Tightness in the throat
  • Dry cough

Pepcid’s active ingredient is a histamine-2 blocker called famotidine. This ingredient prevents histamines from exciting your stomach acids, which effectively relieves your heartburn symptoms, so you can continue to enjoy your day. 

Though Pepcid does come with a few side effects, it is safe enough to be used as an over-the-counter medication. As long as it is used responsibly to treat heartburn symptoms, there shouldn’t be too many problems. The benefits of Pepcid IV therapy usually outweigh any negative effects the medicine may have.

The Benefits of Pepcid IV Therapy

Pepcid is a safe and effective over-the-counter drug, so why would you opt for a Pepcid IV instead? The answer is simple: fast relief. When you take medication by mouth, the drug has to pass through your digestive system before your body can use it. This leads to a delayed reaction, during which you’re stuck dealing with your discomfort.

A Pepcid IV dose avoids all that by putting the medication directly into your bloodstream. Your body can absorb it right away, meaning you’ll be feeling better in mere minutes after receiving this IV treatment instead of hours. You can even mix your Pepcid with other add-ins for an infusion that treats your heartburn and improves your overall health.

The improvements you may notice after receiving Pepcid IV therapy include lessening various acid reflux and heartburn symptoms. Heartburn and uncomfortable feelings in your throat, including a cough that won’t go away, should be relieved after the Pepcid is administered. It may take a while for some symptoms to go away, but the process will be much faster than with the pill form of Pepcid.
