Anne, what meds is Em on for the reflux? I am not sure the Zantac is helping so I would like to hear what helps others.
Prevacid. She was doing 2mls once a day, then thy upped it to 3mls once a day but neither dose worked for more then 12 hrs so now we do 1.5mls twice a days and its way better. We still have spit up of a couple tbls maybe every other feed or more as well as one pretty rough reflux session per Wk....but that is NOTHING compared to what was happening before.
I dont know how much you've read about the acid meds that are out there, but I had another dd w reflux so I learned a lot last time.
Zantac is in the class of meds that are acid neutralizers....generally it doesn't stop the spit up, just makes it not painful.
Prevacid is in the class that are acid reducers...minimizes the amount of spit up and pain by stopping the acid from being produced.
Good luck in finding something that works....it can take awhile unfortunately but ur pedi should be open to tying diff things
Thank you for that info. I did not know it and I will mention at our appt on Wednesday!
