Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Pepcid
Does Pepcid Affect Fertility
Pepcid AC use and sexual dysfunction
Answer: Initially, Tagamet(the original H2 blocker) was seen to have the ability to decrease testerone
production. This was an occasional feature not common in most men. However, the whole
class has this potential problem. Stop the drug for 4-5 weeks and see if the problem corrects - it is
reversible. Use antacids in the intervening time or drugs like Prevacid and Prilosec(more
expensive, but no reports of testerone problems so far).
