Zantac dosage for baby

Common Questions and Answers about Zantac dosage for baby


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 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.
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.
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.
1330108 tn?1333677304 Started Zantac today and baby seems better BF 2x no problem but the last BF she ate until she overflowed. Is this normal? Any suggestions?
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.
7349088 tn?1390657733 I take Zantac 150 once a day as prescribed by my Dr. I've had terrible acid reflux and it seems to be helpful. It's safe neighbor gives her 4 month old baby zantac for silent reflux as prescribed by her pediatrician.
3055148 tn?1368211800 I was prescribed zantac 150 mg 2x a day n just had a healthy baby boy Nov 8 so i agree with the other ladies perfectly safe and a life saver!!
1330108 tn?1333677304 Next step- keep up with the meds, and keep giving it to her regularly. Watch for the old symptoms to creep back as she gains weight- the dosage of zantac is based on weight and needs to be adjusted every few pounds. You will know if it's not as effective, as some of the old symptoms will gradually come back. Also, watch to make sure certain foods you eat don't aggrevate it. It is possible/likely even on the meds.

99627 tn?1301270952 Jazmine takes Zantac for reflux and it has helped her out.
11278126 tn?1419304633 Tums or Zantac. I exceeded the daily dosage on Tums so my doctor told me to take Zantac Maximum Strenghth.
1706625 tn?1343061713 i just got out of the hospital we were in for 2 days straight because of my son having issues, he is 1 month old and just found out he has bad acid reflex, now his doctor used to say he was fine it was normal bla bla bla, also had me try Similac sensitive formula for fussiness and gas. Which just messed with my supply and i noticed i had a bit less milk when i would want to feed him causing him to get mad..
1398693 tn?1343684738 Apparently I have to take zantac and prilosec to stop the acid. So for now until I run out of prilosec I'll take a prilosec at night with a zantac and in the morning I'll take another zantac.
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 .
164914 tn?1269573907 it worked well bc before she would cry and scream for my son was on zantac for about 5 weeks and it was not working...he has other medical issues..trach and we choose to get a nissan..which is a surgical procedure..that you dont have to worry about..: ) but its suppose to be a permanent way to stop reflux..and..long behold three weeks later he's refluxing at this point..ive come to the conclusion its all based on the child..meds do work..
Avatar f tn My doctor said Tums or Rolaids for after the fact and Zantac or Pepcid for proactive measures. I'm 20 weeks but have had heartburn the whole time! Zantac is working wonders!
Avatar f tn My daughter kept aspirating so they had to thickenher milk by adding rice cereal to her formula and also giving her zantac. Zantac works well for acid reflux she's able to eat without spitting up. Everything will be fine .
6965936 tn?1394227011 We had a prescription for a generic form of zantac for our baby. I'm not sure if it ever did anything but my husband seemed to think it did. She out grew it around a year and has been right as rain! I never round any triggers for me...
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 they have tricks and tips that ate safe for you and baby.
4326583 tn?1354714047 Now, I admit I was not checking the IUD every month like I was instructed, but when I did, it was in place as far as I could tell. About 3 months ago, I saw my PCP for a disorder that I have been fighting for most of my whole life - NES (Night Eating Syndrome). This is a rare disorder that happens in about 1% of the population. I would wake up every hour to eat...I was starving at the point of awakening and doing it consciously but unable to stop it.
Avatar m tn My OB said to try Zantac for the possibility of acid reflux. The pain is just tremendous. There has to be something stronger then Tylenol to take and is taking 6 to 8 pills of Tylenol a day even OK?
Avatar f tn Yeah its not pleasant at all when you first take it but I'm 39 weeks and having my baby in a couple days so I'm not going to buy any more meds for that! I used to take zantac 150mg and it works wonders if you'd like to try that!
Avatar n tn Missed a dosage of citalopram and slept like a baby. Maybe it is the cause of my insomnia!
Avatar f tn t like giving more then one med at a time) we decided to try his baby orajel for his teeth thinking maybe his teeth are still bothering him (he's in the middle of cutting his front teeth) but he only stopped crying for maybe 20 minutes. then we thought maybe he's hungry again...he wouldn't even take his bottle. by now he's usually crying so hard he makes himself cough and almost throw up. has anyone elses babies done this? if so.....
