PART III: CONSUMER INFORMATION
PEPCID® COMPLETE Famotidine, Calcium Carbonate and Magnesium Hydroxide Tablets (Chewable)
This leaflet is part III of a three-part "Product Monograph" published when PEPCID® COMPLETE was approved for sale in Canada and is designed specifically for Consumers. This leaflet is a summary and will not tell you everything about PEPCID® COMPLETE. Contact your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions about the drug.

ABOUT THIS MEDICATION
What the medication is used for:
PEPCID® COMPLETE begins to work on contact to provide fast, long lasting and effective relief from heartburn, acid indigestion and upset or sour stomach due to excess stomach acid. PEPCID® COMPLETE also prevents these symptoms brought on by consuming food and/or beverage.

What it does:
PEPCID® COMPLETE contains the medicinal ingredient famotidine (an acid reducer) along with the antacids, calcium carbonate and magnesium hydroxide. This advanced formula combines the benefits of both an antacid and acid reducer in one tablet. PEPCID® COMPLETE combines these two types of ingredients because they relieve heartburn in two different ways. The antacid begins by neutralizing acid on contact. The acid reducer keeps working, day or night, to reduce the production of excess stomach acid.

Do not use PEPCID® COMPLETE
- if you are allergic to Famotidine or any non-medicinal ingredients (see complete list) in the product.

- with other acid reducers.

What the medicinal ingredients are:
Each tablet of PEPCID® COMPLETE contains 10 mg of famotidine, 800 mg of calcium carbonate and 165 mg of magnesium hydroxide. Each tablet provides 320 mg of elemental calcium and 70 mg of elemental magnesium.
