    yeah taurine works pretty well for me too, but both lose their effectiveness for some reason after a couple days.

    So I stopped taking famotidine a couple days ago because of my concerns above. I got curious at work and took 20mg. Instant relaxation, mood boost, and libido/motivation boost when I got home. It must have lowered my prolactin then and maybe it just has a small therapeutic range.

    I'm still getting good results from taurine for more than a month. I take 3 - 4 g. per day. Glad famotidine is working well for you. I think 20 mg. was what I took.

    Does anyone know if the additives in pepcid are a concern?

    Where are people buying the additive free version?

    thanks

    I'm curious about this too, I've been noting the ingredients in different brands to make a comparison page, but so far every brand is pretty junky. Maybe a compounding pharmacist could make a custom option?

    These suggest to me that it could be useful to "pulse" famotidine for people concerned about H. pylori. I'm considering 20mg every 3 days, hoping it gives some fraction of the benefits while maintaining periods of time with plenty of stomach acid.

    Sounds like a solid approach. I may try again, but more like 20mg EOD

    @haidut does cypro increase glycogen storage?

    I don't know about cypro, but taurine is shown to increase glycogen storage in the liver.

    Pepcid is the only one I have ever known of...can be found at any US drug store.

    @haidut is this something that can improve glycogen storage after stopping use or does one need to continue using famotidine to see the benefits?

    I stopped taurine eventually, before that was famotidine. I didn't have the recurring night problems as I described above. Only rare cases. So maybe it did (one or both of them) have a lasting effect.

    I started back on Pepcid 40 - 50 mg. day on Monday and by Thurs. I noticed I could go longer without food during the day, without low blood sugar symptoms.

    20mg of famotidine in the morning badly affect my digestion for the rest of the day. I’m gonna use just 20mg before bed because the glycogen storage effect is pretty cool.
