The maximum effect of Famotidine is seen at one to three hours following its intake. Hence, it is better to take the medicine and have a beer or two at 3 hours after taking the medicine. The overall effect of a single dose of Famotidine lasts for about ten to twelve hours.

I hope this helps you. Take care!
