Famotidine is a competitive histamine antagonist.
Acting on histamine H2 receptors of parietal cells, it significantly reduces the secretion of hydrochloric acid caused by various stimuli. Basal secretion of hydrochloric acid also decreases. To a lesser extent, the caused secretion of pepsinogen is inhibited. It causes dose-dependent suppression of hydrochloric acid production and a decrease in pepsin activity. Does not significantly change the level of gastrin in the plasma.
