Cimetidine reduces acidity in the stomach and is used to treat ulcers of the stomach and intestines, as well as to prevent them from returning after they have healed. This medication can also be used to treat stomach and throat (esophagus) problems resulting from excessive stomach acid (e.g. erosive esophagitis) or a flow of stomach acid backward into the esophagus (acid reflux disease/GERD). By decreasing excess stomach acid, symptoms such as stomach pain, difficulty swallowing, heartburn, persistent cough, and trouble sleeping can be relieved with Cimetidine. Serious acid damage to your digestive system can also be avoided. Cimetidine, in oral liquid form (300 mg/5 mL), costs around $37 for a 237ml bottle. Cimetidine is a generic medicine, and a common brand name is Tagamet. You can buy your Cimetidine prescription at a far lower price, simply by using our Cimetidine coupon card.

Cimetidine is classified as an H2(histamine) blocker. It works by blocking histamine - a chemical that stimulates the release of acid into the stomach. This reduces acidity in the stomach and thus can treat conditions such as heartburn, stomach ulcers or esophagitis.
