2 mg tablets? I thought a dose of Pepcid was 10 mg. There are three
drugs in that class, cimetidine @ 200 mg per dose, ranatidine @ 75 mg
per dose and what-the-heck ever Pepcid is @ 10 mg per dose. Pepcid does
not disolve well and needs a good shaken before giving. I'm curious
about how Pepcid chewable would disolve. Pretty sure ranatidine (Zantac
75) would disolve better than the regular Pepcid.
