458072 tn?1291415186 federal health authorities recommended … that doctors suspend using Rotarix, one of two vaccines licensed in the U.S. against rotavirus, saying the vaccine is contaminated with material from a pig virus,” CNN reports. The Rotarix vaccine, which is made by GlaxoSmithKline and was approved by the FDA in 2008, has already been given to about 1 million U.S. children along with 30 million worldwide.

Avatar f tn I cant remember if my daughters pediatrician gave her the rotavirus vaccine before we left Michigan..She is now 2months old and when we went to get her 2 months shot done, they gave her the rotavirus vaccine orally, here in mexico..Will she be sick or anything?
Avatar f tn This side effect may last for a few days following vaccination and improves. Rotavirus is also well tolerated. Side effects are very rare and easily treatable .Generally the benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks. Very serious side effects can happen with any vaccine but are very rare. I hope it helps. Take care and regards!
8101930 tn?1420001456 My son is 2 months and just received his first shots yesterday including the rotavirus vaccine. I noticed that after his shots and today he has been pooping yellow colored like normal but it is very chunky. He is exclusively breast fed and always has a little bit of a seedy stool but this is very chunky. I'm Just curious if anyone knows if this is normal or not. Could it be from the rotavirus vaccine because they do ingest it. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Pediarix is a DTaP-Hep B-IPV Combination Vaccine. This is a FDA approved vaccine .It is safe and effective. Since you have already started series of Pediarix it is better to continue with the same. Do not miss out doses of Haemophilus influenza B vaccine and rotavirus. Discuss it with your Local Paediatrician.Do keep us posted. Take care and kind regards!
Avatar f tn I have Chosen to NOT immunize my dd against the Chickenpox, because where I live it is Optional, and the Chickenpox can be serious, but it is far worse when they are adults. Especially if this immunization is not life long, which no one knows for sure at this point! My two ds had the chickenpox, (the vaccine was brand new when they were born, and I knew nothing about it, so I chose against it.) I am glad that I did, both of my boys got the chickenpox on their own.

Avatar f tn I don't know if it is a flu, rotavirus or some other kind of virus.. but an stomach/intestinal virus has been going around my area for the last month or so. Some people go it really bad and others just kinda bad. Jacob ended going to the ER and being put on IV fluids. I doubt it is the rotavirus, because I read somewhere that most adults are not effected by it because they have already been exposed to it earlier in their life. I hope you all are feeling better soon.
Avatar m tn and in early life was infected with giardia and rotavirus (4 month old immediately after weaning) does this affect the GI healing and repar after treating them?
Avatar n tn My 3 month old son has been having 9-10 green mucousy stools per day since he received his 2nd dose of the Rotavirus vaccine, Rotateq. It has been 10 days with no improvement. He is in a lot of pain before and during a bowel movement. Other than that, he seems perfectly fine. Is this a common side effect of the vaccine? How long will this last? What can I do to help him get better?
136689 tn?1419580447 she had rotavirus from birth but that is sorting it self out and has been putting on weight steadly so we are sort of hoping that the sweat test will come back negative do i have a glimmer of hope for a misdiagnoses?
223520 tn?1221440283 Oh I am sorry I mis-read - rotavirus is 2 months, 4 months and 6 months so I am not sure ewhat would happen at this point. Sorry, I am sure he will be fine but it is scary.
Avatar n tn Hello, my daughter is 22 months old and is in need of her third dose of prevnar. I am currently living in the dominican republic and one doctor here said, "she would need to receive the first and second dose again - much like when one doesn't obtain the Hep B shots on time..." and yet another doctor told me that, "she will just need a stronger dose to complete the prevnar innoculation".
Avatar f tn Ok this is what I found in the notes after trying to figure out what the artifact is in epideral space, I found that the neuro stimulator was implanted into my right ear and was glued to my mastod bone then the leads were guided in from the back of my neck. I don't remember any of it at all. no device to turn it up or down adjust it nothing. Now I am experiencing what I call a taser shocking feeling that backs every ligament muscle in my neck start spasming like crazy.
Avatar f tn Is there another condition, food allergy, or intolerance which can cause the villi to be blunted besides celiac or a gluten intolerance?
889551 tn?1416184483 Lexi got her shots yesterday at her appt. She made the minimum cut off for her weight gain that he set for her bc she wasn't gaining very good in the beginning. She's 26 inches long as well, and he said if she kept growing like that, she would be tall. Anyways, she acted fine all day yesterday and was only just a bit sleepy. She ate fine, was smiling and playing.
Avatar n tn The stools are very abrasive and his skin integrity is damaged at this point. A couple of times the diarrhea stopped for approx. a month, then returned. Can you tell me any ideas you may have? Would Rotavirus do this? Would a biopsy be the next step? Thank you.
Avatar m tn My baby is turning four months on September 4, 2010. He is scheduled for his 1st dose of rotarix. Unfortunately, I read that rotarix first dose should be administered between 6 and 14 weeks. I also read that the first dose of rotavirus vaccines should not be administered later than 15 weeks. My question now is, should i continue he vaccine on September 4 or should i just skip the vaccine altogether since my son is already more than 15 week old? thank you.
Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, lisinopril and hydrochorthiazide as good safety profile. Headache and passage of loose stools is unlikely to be caused by the above drugs. The loose stools can be due to infection and can be associated with headache esp. with electrolyte depletion.
Avatar f tn So I have my baby already but I am begging you all do research on vaccines before your baby arrives. I have my 8 week old girl and she just got her first set of shots and she's very sick after them she's been crying like never before her eyes are in so much pain her body gets so stiff. She has pooped at least 2 times every day since birth now she hasn't pooped since the vaccine it's been 4 days!!!!
