Frequently asked questions for Famotidine

Q. How is Tobur different from omeprazole?
Both Tobur and omeprazole lower the acid production in your stomach but they belong to the different group of drugs. Studies have shown that omeprazole is more effective than Tobur in treating heartburn and in rapid healing of duodenal ulcers. However, the effect of these medicines may vary upon individual response.
Tobur belongs to the class of H2 receptor blockers which decrease the amount of acid produced in the stomach. While antacids only neutralize the stomach acid by coating the stomach.
Q. What is the difference between Tobur and pantoprazole?
Tobur is an H2 histamine receptor blocker whereas pantoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor. Pantoprazole is more potent at inhibiting gastric acid production compared to famotidine and also its effect lasts for a long time.
Q. How is Tobur different from cimetidine?
Both Tobur and cimetidine lower gastric acid secretion by blocking the H2 receptor in the stomach. However, Tobur is longer acting, more efficacious, and has very less side effects when compared to cimetidine.
