Zantac dosage for children

Common Questions and Answers about Zantac dosage for children


Avatar f tn SEE YOUR DOCTOR to determine if the above regimen is safe and proper for you, especially the oral benedryl as the dosage is above the recommended amount. Do NOT do this regimen while taking Doxepine also. Partial relief should begin within 5 minutes, complete relief when the combined effect of the oral benedryl kicks in (20-30 minutes). Relief from the itching should last approx 3 to 6 hours. All the benedryl WILL make you sleepy.
Avatar n tn PLEASE keep in mind that these are all just ideas. What works for one may not work for the other. Children probably wont grow out of asthma but lets hope they will. Medicine is meant to HELP not prevent or eliminate asthma.
Avatar f tn Prevacid usage in infants with GER/GERD Lansoprazole also known as Prevacid is not typically recommended for children under 6 months of age. It is directed by the medications manufacturer that it must be given on an empty stomach in order to get the best results. Most children under 6 months of age eat every 2 to 4 hours therefore not allowing their stomachs to fully empty it's contents withen the time needed to administer the medication.
175662 tn?1282217256 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 luckily they were all benign! I had been on .88 for the past few year until this past March. I started getting shaky, moody, lost a couple of pounds, anxiety/panic attacks. Dr told me I was went into hyper but it was a mild hyper. Was also told I am going thru menopause. My levothyroxine was lowered to far the lowest I've been on. Towards the end of May I started having bad acid reflux......mine doesn't burn, just makes me kinda hoarse and hurts my throat, etc.

Avatar m tn My 6 year old daughter has been having moderate to severe abdominal pain for months now. It is very tender to the touch, hurts when she eats, hurts when she runs or jumps, wakes her up in the middle of the night. Sometimes it hurts so bad that she is curled up in a ball in tears, and others she complains about it for a few minutes and then goes and plays.

Avatar n tn 3 weeks early, slow labor resulting in a c-section, colic, milk protein intolerance, zantac for a year, idiopathic hives at about 12-months, one year of zyrtec to trick his immune system out of responding, clean allergy tests at 18 months, febrile seizures starting at 18 months, tubes in both ears and adenoids removed at age 2 because of eight ear infections in six months, chronic nasal drainage resolved with nasonex, chronic cough (five months) resulting from an un-diagnosed sinus infection,
Avatar n tn This seems like half the current recommended dosage for H. pylori. I am concerned that this may have been just enough to produce a resistant H. pylori. Any thoughts on this? Are there any alternate meds recommended if the amoxicillin is a problem? I know this is a bit unusual, but please, I am looking for specific information. I will then take this to my cardiologist so that we can make a more informed choise. Thanks.
Avatar f tn People considering B12 supplements should check with a healthcare provider to find out the most appropriate dosage. Daily recommendations for dietary vitamin B12 are listed below. Pediatric * Newborns to 6 months: 0.4 mcg (adequate intake) * Infants 6 months to 1 year: 0.5 mcg (adequate intake) * Children 1 to 3 years: 0.9 mcg (RDA) * Children 4 to 8 years: 1.2 mcg (RDA) * Children 9 to 13 years: 1.8 mcg (RDA) * Adolescents 14 to 18 years: 2.
Avatar m tn I have posted many,many questions to do with heartburn,acid reflux(i think partly iam becoming obsessed looking for answers). i have not yet gone to a doctor but from my own thoughts and people on this website its almost %100 that i have some form of acid reflux problem.. I ve been able to keep the acid from coming up. ive take a combination of zantac, gaviscon liquid,lots of water and ginger tea. They all seem to be working wonders..
Avatar n tn At 2 months he was diagosed with silent reflux and put on Zantac. He did very well for 1 week. He had his 2month shots and then spiraled out of control. He went to the hospital because he wasn't eating and his reflux seem extremely aggreviated. The hospital took adomial ex-rays (which were normal) and ran some blood tests that were normal. The hospital couldn't run certain tests because his blood kept clotting. His dose of Zantac was increased and he was put on Nutragamin formula.
Avatar n tn What medication did you end up using for the reflux? My daughter is 6 months and nothing seems to work. The Zantac seemed to stop working so we switched to previcid which gave her severe stomach pain.
Avatar m tn Women who do not have enough vitamin B12 in their blood before and after conception have a greater chance of having a baby with brain or spinal cord defects, a new study says. Most at risk may be vegans and vegetarians, since B12 is far more common in meat and animal-based foods, noted an American and Irish research team whose findings were published in the March issue of Pediatrics.. According to the study, women with low levels of B12 had at least 2.
480895 tn?1212153335 He was in the NICU 3 days after he was born, and put on EleCare for GERD. Later put on Omeprazole, and then added Axid...tried Zantac in lieu of Axid, due to unavailability while hospitalized in July, but didn't work. Has had Bradycardia and Apnea, since birth, both obstructive from reflux and caused by central brain issues. He has had all the reflux testing done, including PH probes, impedence probes, neumogram, polysomniogram, upper GI's x 3, 2 barium swallow studies.
219522 tn?1251764229 I also have hypothyroidism - currently awaiting lab results for antibodies to diagnose suspected Hashis. I recently made my first trip to the Endocrinologist and one of my big complaints was and is excessive coughing, wheezing and hoarseness - particularly after eating. I thought that it was related to my nodules(3 in rt. lobe) but my Dr. seems to think it is GERD and not thyroid related.
Avatar f tn I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage. I know that if I take this dosage I will be up all night but am really uncertain about how much I should take. Using Aveeno to sooth the welts with minimal effect. I empathize with anyone going through this experience. Any suggestions appreciated. Am thinking of thinking an immunologist since the allergist was absolutely no health.
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Avatar f tn Saw a special on TV that said just by having her son bath in water with a small amount of bleach in it, every night, his eczema has stayed in control incredibly well. Has helped so much, he reminds her of his bath if she forgets. Also, always noticed with my grandkids, that any cream they had us use, when they had us using cortizone cream and Eucerin, that the creams only work really well, when applied directly after bath or shower. Any other time was barely effectivew.
306307 tn?1317057118 It isn't funny but in a way it is. We have all dealt with the same symptoms just in different times in our lives. As far as an MRi I suggest you ask for valium and make sure some one goes along with you to drive you home. I am also afraid to have mri but what I do is when I walk in there just don't look at the tube and also ask for a mask. They alway's have them for you. I can also relate to your children except for me I now have grandkid's and I will hear my daughter say.
Avatar n tn I am a huge fan of chiropractic. My entire family goes, and my 4 children have not had to see a medical doctor for an illness in over 4 years.
Avatar n tn I gave him Benadryl as recommended by the ER doc (note - the dosage was as instructed by the pharmacist, as the instructions on the box are for hayfever type symptoms -- she assured me that the higher dose for an allergic reaction is safe and necessary). We gave him 1 tsp Benadryl every 6 hours starting Monday morning, till Tues morning when we saw our family doc and she said it was okay to stop.
Avatar m tn I have been on the same dosage for 5 months. It does keep my BP in normal range most of the time. I moved for a job transfer and i went to see a new doctor and my bp was high. I knew it would be because it always is when i go to the doc. But i can leave there and go check it somewhere else and it is in normal range. I had to be off the meds when i got my treadmill test done.
Avatar n tn Doing good!!! Feeling bigger this morning for some reason!!! How are you???? I've always heard that the more pregnancies you have the sooner you feel movement, but unfortunately I haven't felt anything yet. Sometimes my tummy will get harder on one side than the other, so maybe the little one is moving from side to side, but not sure! I can't wait for it though!!!
1560663 tn?1298050127 I don't know what dose you would give a dog but I'm sure it would be fine for them if it's ok for a cat. I just don't know for sure about giving it to a dog. It has been a life saver, literally. If I miss giving it to him even once his stool will begin to harden and they are huge. I can't imagine passing a stool as big as he has had to so don't miss a dose. You might be able to adjust it to a smaller amount so that it is not so runny.
