Zantac dosage babies

Common Questions and Answers about Zantac dosage babies


Avatar f tn So my 2 1/2 month old is on soy based formula due to milk allergy, he's been on it since he was a day old.. he has acid reflux. So he's on zantac. But 3 weeks ago he got to the point where he cries while he's eating. He seems miserable. I don't know if I need to call tomorrow and ask to see if they need to up his dosage on zantac? Or something. He eats the bottle but he cries like he's in pain the entire time. And he cries literally all day .
Avatar n tn Also, what is the recommended dosage for the Zantac? I am still having some breakthrough with my current regimen (i.e., one 30 mg Prevacid in the a.m., and one 150 mg Zantac in the p.m. Thanks so much and I look forward to your answer.
99627 tn?1301270952 I think he FINALLY outgrew it. Zantac is the mildest form of the acid reflux meds. Like I said, it goes Zantac, Prilosec, Prevacid and then Nexium. I never had a problem with Zantac other than it tastes REALLY bad so if you can, go to Osco and get it flavored grape- we tried several flavors and the grape covered the aweful mint taste the best. My niece is also on Zantac right now with no problems.
Avatar f tn Hi, my son who is now 3 also had reflux, though not as severe as your grandson's seems to be. Zantac worked for my son; however, it doesn't work for everyone. There is alot more that can be done for him. Take him to a pediatrician, or call the GP you saw and ask him for a referral to a gastroenterologist (tummy doc) for your grandson. If you can get the GP to give a referral then you can save money since a pediatrician may just refer you to the tummy doc anyway.
220217 tn?1209679677 s the question - both babies scream at the top of their lungs for no reason and are fighting us when we try to feed them. I am worried that they might not be getting enough to eat. I believe they are starting to teethe so we are giving them Hyland tablets and some Tylenol but it doesn't seem to help. They are also on Zantac for their heartburn/reflux. Any other ideas or suggestions? I hate to keep giving them Tylenol as DH doesn't like them to be "drugged".

DH is a veterinarian so I have him calculate the dosage range for me but lately it seems like I am having to up the dose so much to get it to work it is starting to concern me. The original script was for .4ml 3x a day. As of today we are at about 1.5 mls 2x a day. For us the higher amount at 2x works better than a lower dosage 3x.

776572 tn?1360290739 was sooo sick last night so took one 75mg pill last night and another pill again this am on recommendation from motherrisk morning sickness helpline. seems to be helping, however i plan to stop taking the pills and change my diet, concentrating on consuming more alkaline foods instead of taking meds. nausea was remarkably reduced this am and in fact, i didn't wake during the night with the urge to vomit -- first time in weeks.
11278126 tn?1419304633 Tums or Zantac. I exceeded the daily dosage on Tums so my doctor told me to take Zantac Maximum Strenghth.
Avatar n tn t need up (or something like that). Is there a test to do for reflux for babies and how safe is it to prescribe Zantac for a baby? She said she will see us Oct. 20th (which is suppose to be his 6 mo. well child check, but he is getting in late, 7months exactly) is there something I can do besides giving him Zantac?
Avatar f tn How are you giving the prevacid? It must be on a completely empty stomach, so you cannot give it in milk or formula. This makes it hard to administer to stubborn babies like my little one! Our gastro said ideally, it should be about 30 minutes before a feed as well. Did you stop the Zantac cold turkey? That could be part of the problem. It does take up to 2 weeks to see the full benefits of the prevacid, and in the mean time it is recommended you continue some Zantac.
Avatar f tn I take the Walmart brand of Zantac sometimes twice a day. I took it for the last 3 to 4 months Of my first pregnancy and it never went away and so when I got pregnant again I took it and get bad and the Dr said 2 a day was safe and so here I am baby 3 and taking it and all my babies are fine :-D take a Zantac don't struggle.
Avatar n tn my 14 weeks baby girl weighing 12 pounds spits up at least 3 to 4 times every feed (4 feeds per day) and she burps many times as well and she gets all cranky and fussy while burping or spitting.. She doesn't cry excessively but she just seems annoyed and we need to keep distracting her..
Avatar m tn I feel this is dangerous but the doctor thinks its fine. Oh I also take up to 300 miligrams of zantac for acute acid attacks.
Avatar f tn Usually the dosage of chlomid is low at first so the chances of multiple babies are not common. Even as the dosage increases, the chances of having multiples with chlomid is not as high as most people think.
2006603 tn?1331329327 they probably saved my sons life. He also was on zantac daily. Dairy is really bad for babies and us too but in moderation everythings OK..
175662 tn?1282213656 So, after having Nadezdha diagnosed with having reflux last week and being on Zantac... my father started me worrying. He mentioned that Zantac might interfere with her ability to make acid later. So.. I didn't want to give her the medication today. I also noticed that a lot of babies are being diagnosed with this... why? There isn't a change in the society, and babies are pretty much supposed to "spit up" a lot... so... *sigh* I'mn frustrated.
Avatar f tn Some babies respond better to prevacid, others to zantac. Did you see any improvement at all when you started the meds? If not, then it may not be acid reflux. If you saw some improvement but not enough, then you may want to consider asking to try zantac. 2 months is a rough age- many babies are still colicky at that time. Other than spitting up, does she show the classic signs of acid reflux? Some babies just spit up a lot because of their immature digestive systems.
Avatar n tn I seem to notice less hives when I take two Zantac daily plus my daily Zyrtec. In fact, my hives are very much improved since I added Zantac to my routine. Also, when my face is red and burning, I use petroleum jelly to soothe. I also use Mary Kay products, like their creamy cleanser. I switched from Avon products, which were too harsh. For my scalp, I use prescription Nizoral. That does the trick. My swelling is much improved since my medication was bumped.
Avatar f tn Im on the same page, these babies need to pop out already !
150483 tn?1212168556 Definitely do not take that many. Read the bottle to find out exactly what the max amount recommended (it varies brand to brand, dosage to dosage).
Avatar n tn My 7 week old son cries ALL day long, mostly after he eats. 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?
Avatar f tn my 10 day old grandson was put on an AR formula, 1 ml Zantac twice daily, .05mil of Mylanta in every bottle, half a teaspoon of probiotics once a day.
Avatar n tn Yesterday however, I had a visit with my OBGYN who is completely against nexium, prilosec or any other drug except for zantac. I tried taking zantac, but I do not feel any relief whatsoever. I consulted pharmacists and other doctors who clearly state that it is safe to take nexium during pregnancy. I am sure I am not the only pregnant woman with this problem, can someone please advise as to whether nexium is safe to take during pregnancy and if you actually took it and your babies are healthy.
