zantac

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 Do you think having Acid Reflux can cause so much gas? Has anyone used Zantac for their newborns? Any side effects?
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..
Avatar n tn but im thinking of trying zantac for her the least doisage possible just to cjeck if it will reduce the spitting and the crankiness after feeds, but i also don't want her tummy to get used to it since my self i have been on omeprazole for years and can't live without it.. it's only during my pregnancy that I have changed to zantac and in severe cases pariet or lanzor.
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.
Avatar n tn Maximum requirement of Amoxicillin for infants(child) is 30mg/kg/day divided every 12 hrs.But dose could be adjusted basing on severity of infection and also based on age.How old is your 80 pound(36 Kgs) kid?Why did you meet the other Doc who prescribed 2 teaspoons?Is it just because your son did not get well after meeting the first Doc?Are his symptoms subsiding?Those details are needed to estimate your sons present situation and prescribing correct dosage.
Avatar n tn He is not vomiting but is very fussy (as though he is in pain) and gulps a lot. He was put on Zantac 2 times a day and a special formula nutramigen. He is still fussy and continues to gulp a lot. I just don't know what to do now...do I switch the formula...does he need to be on a different dose of zantac? I have heard of a formula with a rice starch...would that help keep the food down and not up to his esophagus. Please help....desperately trying to make my baby happy.
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.
Avatar f tn what dosage of oxycontin should you give a child undre the age of 18? I'm writing a paper on it.
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 I feel Gerd and milk allergy are grossly overdiagnosed in infants. Lactose overload has been diagnosed in breast-fed infants now - and I believe it is also found in babies.
1507909 tn?1313633804 My 2 month old baby just had her shots yesterday and she was in a little pain so I gave her some infants Motrin because I didnt have any Tylenol and it was late at night then I was told by a few friends that u don't give Motrin til after 6 months now I'm a lil worried I mean she seems to be fine to me she's just sleeping a lil more should be worried or is it ok to give Motrin I followed the weight/dosage chart perfectly.

Avatar f tn stopping zantac for a week to see if it is has an effect on stomach problems
11278126 tn?1419304633 Tums or Zantac. I exceeded the daily dosage on Tums so my doctor told me to take Zantac Maximum Strenghth.
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 .
Avatar n tn I would not do both at all and 7 weeks old is really to young for meds. It seems like more and mroe dr's are perscribing meds for babies that don't need it. He might not agree with the formula he is given or is eating to much. The dr never todl you to use cereal did he??? A baby under 9 months digestive tract is not ready for cereals and lots of foods. It will casue lots of digeestive problems.
171768 tn?1324230099 Jacob who is 22 months now is the one that was tongue tied. He was always a terrible feeder and looking back on it all, I really think he probably was suffering from reflux but maybe not a very bad case of it. I pointed his tongue out to his original pedi and that pedi was against doing anything about it unless it interfered with feeding or talking. That early on I was breast feeding so I really didn't realize how bad of a feeder jacob was until we switched to the bottle.
Avatar n tn During the first six months of life, infants should not get more than 1,000 IU of vitamin D daily, while the daily dosage of vitamin D for infants up to 12 months old should not exceed 1,500 IU. The tolerable upper intake level for vitamin D for toddlers younger than 4 years old and young children between 4 and 8 years old are 2,500 IU and 3,000 IU, respectively. Anyone age 9 or older should not get more than 4,000 IU of vitamin D in a day. Read more: http://www.livestrong.
