Zantac for infants dosage

Common Questions and Answers about Zantac for infants dosage


Avatar f tn I had preeclamsia at the end of my pregnancy, and was placed on a beta blocker (labelolol 200 mg bid). I also pumped, but after about 3 weeks, my supply died. Did the beta blocker have that effect on my milk or was it my diet? I also wondered if my taking prilosec had any effect on my son's acid reflux? Ok, so it was two questions. Any other advice about infant acid reflux are definitely appreciated!
Avatar f tn Prevacid generally does not come in small enough dosages or under 15mg which is considered a high dose for infants under 6 months of age. 15mg is usually broken into several dosages throughout a 24 hour period so that the infant is not consuming a high amount at one time. *This was the information I was given from my Pediatric GI. I would seriously think about talking to your childs GI about this information if your child is on Prevacid.
171768 tn?1324233699 The tagament didn't work any better so I went back to the zantac since it is FDA approved for infants. His 4 month appt is on the 29th so I'm going to take to the dr about the ppi.. i hate medicating my LO also but I don't know what else to do. What weight/dosage are you using right now? Sorry so long and I'm sure there are tons of typos.
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.

If you did nto do meds and did cereal did it make things better and how? I've done meds and cereal. With all of them except the last one with reflux.
Avatar n tn Decogrl - I was afaid you may not see my response way down below so I added a post. PLEASE do not let your doctor tell you it can't be reflux JUST BECAUSE she eats all of her bottles! Reflux can be so much more complicated than that! It can be "silent" which means that the child doesn't spit up what they are refluxing, but the acid is still entering and BURNING the esophagus! Think about adult heartburn...we don't "spit up" but it sure hurts when we have it! Same thing!
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 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 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.
Avatar n tn Reflux is really common in infants, their digestive tract is still developing and their pyloris is still a bit relaxed. Given the weight, I would simply try adjusting the formula or employ some different feeding methods such as burping after every ounce, keeping baby upright during feeding and for at least 1/2 hour afterwards, etc. Do not add cereal to the bottle. There are many other things to do before even considering that.
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 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 n tn A year ago I heard on the radio that they were accepting people for a clinical study for free medicine for irritable bowel syndrome,and to call a 1-800 number.I did,the man asked me 15-20 questions and then said that I don't even match irrtable bowel and then hung up.I am sorry I have no answer for you,but wanted you to know that this I GUESS is what we have to SUFFER with for the rest of our lives.IT SUCKS BADLY!Get medimucil, fiber cereals and/or fiber pills.
Avatar f tn Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side. I've had all the heart tests, including stress echo, I've had an MRI of my brain and neck, I've had a breast exam. I've even seen a chiropractor. Every test they've done comes back normal. And nothing seems to help. I've tried aspri - doesn't work. I try massaging my breast and shoulders and that seems to help a tiny bit. Usually the pain is very dull...
Avatar n tn Hi - I've been having difficulty breathing for at least the last 9-10 years...and it's a daily thing. I am 31 years old, am healthy (exercise almost daily, eat healthily, am not overweight, do not smoke, and only drink socially), and yet I always feel like my breathing is extremely laboured. I constantly yawn to try to catch a satisfying breath.
