I was originally taking omeprazole to treat GERD and was met with mild success. After the prescription expired I found famotidine in the medicine cabinet. After about 15 minutes the acid in my throat went down, my hiccups disappeared, and my heartburn was gone. Fast acting and effective.

i HAVE BEEN USING 20mg daily for years but have experienced shortness of breath which is unexplained by other reasons--so I have stopped taking it to determine if there is a connection---but I only stopped two days ago so it remains to be seen.
