    Zantac® and DUO Fusion™ do not contain the same active ingredients. Zantac® is an H2 blocker (Histamine 2 blocker) with ranitidine as the active ingredient. Zantac® is used to relieve heartburn associated with acid indigestion and sour stomach or prevent heartburn associated with acid indigestion and sour stomach brought on by eating certain foods or drinking certain beverages. Zantac® tablets are NOT chewable; they should be swallowed whole.

  • What is the difference between DUO Fusion™ chewable tablets and Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI)?

    DUO Fusion™ chewable tablets combine the antacids calcium carbonate and magnesium hydroxide with the acid reducer (H2 blocker), famotidine.

Famotidine reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach by blocking the action of histamine on the H2 receptors. DUO Fusion™ chewable tablets start to work in seconds and relieve heartburn for up to 12 hours.

    Over-the-counter Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) treat frequent heartburn (heartburn that occurs 2 or more days per week) by turning off some of the acid producing pumps in the stomach thereby reducing the amount of acid in the stomach. PPIs are taken once daily for 14 days and may take 1 to 4 days for full effect.

  • Can I take DUO Fusion™ chewable tablets with Zantac® or Proton Pump Inhibitors like Nexium®, Prilosec® or Prevacid®?

    The Duo Fusion™ chewable tablets label states: Do not use if you are allergic to famotidine or other acid reducers. Do not use with other acid reducers.

    We recommend you speak directly with your healthcare professional to discuss which product would be best for you, based on your specific medical history.
