2 daughters
Adison - 3 years old, Prevacid 30mg
Emery - infant, Prevacid 7.5mg
Waiting to eat after Prevacid solutabs?
How long are you guys waiting to feed your little ones after giving them Prevacid solutabs? My doctor and two pharmacists have given me 3 different answers ranging from you don't have to wait at all, to waiting 60 minutes. Thanks, Jill

5 month old,nursing, 7.5 MG prevacid 2xper day, 1.3 ml erthyromycin 4xper day; doing good with treatment; loves solids!
My son is on the prevacid packets, but we have also heard different things. The pharmacist told us immediately before feeding and the pedi GI said the prevacid manufacturers say 1 hour, but he said that clinical studies show no difference, so he said it doesn't matter. I guess a good way to tell is to try different methods and see if any work better for your baby.
