Ibuprofen/Famotidine Side Effects

Common Side Effects

Ibuprofen/famotidine has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking ibuprofen/famotidine were documented and compared to side effects that occur in another group of people taking just ibuprofen. As a result, it was possible to see what ibuprofen/famotidine side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to ibuprofen alone.
 
In these studies, the most common ibuprofen/famotidine side effects included:
 
 
Other common side effects, occurring in 1 to 2 percent of people, included but were not limited to:
 
 
It is possible that many of these reported side effects may not be real side effects at all, as the studies did not compare ibuprofen/famotidine to a placebo (a medicine that does not contain any active ingredients). For instance, 3 percent of people given ibuprofen/famotidine, as well as 3 percent of the people taking ibuprofen only, had a headache. Because there is no placebo to compare it to, it is possible that the headaches were completely unrelated to the medication.
