Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Pharmacist said Caracreme (no idea how to spell that...sorry!) is being discontinued!
That is what our pharmacist told me today when I called to get Sebastian's Prevacid suspension filled today! WHAT? I mean, we are switching to Zegerid once I get better at mixing it, but WHAT? What will they do for all the suspension meds? Is there another brand available? Just thought I'd share! This is bad news if it is true...

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
Maybe that pharmacy is not going to be using it anymore and they will no olonger be provided suspensions there. They are costly to make so in our area only 1 pharmacy does them. We jsut picked up Jedd's suspension of Prilosec and thye said nothing to us. It was at the hospital's Farm Fresh pharmacy.

i live in the middle of nowhere and only the hospital here mixes with caracreme the next nearest pharmacy is 45 mins away! i am almost positive there is one other type of suspension they can use IF caracreme is in fact being taken off the market
Check with your
doctor first!
