Common Questions and Answers about Prevacid vs zantac for infant reflux

prevacid

He's was on Zantac, and then switched to Prevacid. he's been on Prevacid (15 mg/2x day) for three days, but I see no iimprovement. He's about 12.5 pounds. Can any one tell me how long it takes Prevacid to work, and should we continue Zantac and Prevacid until it starts working?
Ended up his reflux was so bad (at this time we had gone from Zantac to prilosec to prevacid) even on the Prevacid, that he had ulcers, esophagitis, etc. the pictures they took during the scope were heartbreaking. Now I understood why he was crying and coughing. It hurt. He doesn't talk so he can't tell us what hurts. I can tell his cry, even now, is different when something hurts but I can't always figure out what it is.
and in my 30s bile reflux started. There was no temporary relief for bile reflux - there is for acid reflux but not bile reflux. A couple of years ago, out of sheer desperation I tried ice cream. During a bile reflux attack (they're bloody awful) I ate ice cream ... and the last four times in a row it's worked. 1 to 2 cups of ice cream and 20 minutes later I'm completely ok. I don't lie down during an attack ... or after eating ice cream. Any flavour seems to work - frozen yoghurt does not.
She has been treated for reflux. I am at a loss and my doctors haven't been much help. Any help would be greatly appreciated. She is 5 weeks old.
Hi ladies. I know it's kind of early for me, being only 7wks 5days along, to start this, but I wanted to start sharing this journey with others due around the same time as me. I know many of us (me included) are afraid to put ourselves out there this early, afraid that something might go wrong, but I have known so many of you for you long, that I just couldn't wait any longer to start sharing experiences with you.
