I am Jacky, mommy to Joslyn Olivia (April 2008) and Katelyn Isabel (November 2009).
Joslyn was dx'ed with Silent Reflux with breath apnea at 5 days old. VERY SCARY!
Katelyn is a spitter reflux baby. Started at 3 days old as well. (Both were/are breast fed.. symptoms came on when my milk came in).
Joslyn has been reflux free since she was 12 months (suffered poor weight gain for a few months) and Katelyn is now on Zantac... waiting to see if it works.
what meds in your LO on or have been on?
Hi everyone. I am doing some research into what meds everyone has used or are using. Can you give me a low down? Thanks Jacky

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
She can "come after m any day" LOLI'm sure Jedd would have fun playing with her......:)~

Jedd has tried Zantac, prevaciad (beads and solutabs) Prilosec. Protonix.

We stopped the Zantac because it flat out didNOT do anything.

Stopped the prevacaid (both) becasue we kept having issues getting it to go down a tiny 6French feeding tube.

While on Protonix the old Gi (whom I dislike greatly) would not up the dose so it bacame ineffective.

Old GI RX priolsec and it worked onlyh because the new GI was willing to adjust doesing as JEdd gained weight.

Oh and we did Reglan, it worked but Jedd was extremely irritated while on it.

He now takes E-mycin instead.

Those are jsut reflux meds. He has also taken several others to manage his congestive heart failure and serious pain meds afterheart surgery when we came home and other various meds while in patient.

The boy has taken more meds the DH and I combined in our entire life...LOL

ethan's mom
Meridith, mom to Ethan born 4/23/08. Ethan was diagnosed with reflux at about 1 month. He has been on Zantac (unsuccessful) and Prevacid. He is currently taking 7.5 mg of Prevacid 2x per day, with good results. We also suspect MPI, though this hasn't been confirmed by a doctor yet.
Ethan is mostly breastfed, though we are doing one bottle of soy formula each day. We also do some homeade "solids' including, so far pears, avocado, sweet potato, and peaches.

We started with Zantac, .5ml twice a day. It did nothing, so we went to Prevacid solutab, 1/2 tab twice a day. For the last three days, we have only done the evening dose, and so far so good.

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
Prevacid, Zantac and Mylanta

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
Uh oh - BEASTIE WOMAN! We' started on Zantac, switched to Prilosec and Axid, then to Prevacid and Axid, and now we're on Pepcid and Prevacid. Tried Reglan, but she reacted to it. We were also on lactulose for 4 months. Probiotics daily (which I think has made the biggest difference - www.protherainc.com

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.... :(
Hi there...for us, it's been: Zantac (useless), Prilosec (useless), Prevacid capsules (would have probably worked if he hadn't had problems with solids), Prevacid suspension, Zegerid (went back to Prevacid because he got worse after four days on Zegerid), Mylanta Cherry Supreme. Those are just the reflux meds!

PICTURE: Aubrey in her cute cat outfit. If you look you can see how her right foot turns in. She walks that way as well. It is not as exaggerated in the morning's but gets worse in the evenings. This was after her nap.

Prevacid (severe reaction), Axid-worked for a while and now zegerid-works wonders. Carafate on and off as needed. Probiotics everyday.

Tracey, mom to Katie. Diagnosed with reflux at 3 weeks and put on Zantac. At 8 months old she was removed from Zantac as it was giving her migraines, currently on Prevacid. Switched to Elecare since she is not gaining weight; trialing solids after being off for a month. Geneticist said reason she isn't gaining weight is she is stubborn. Upcoming appts.: Neurologist for developmental delay and EGD scheduled for September. She is one funny baby!

I agree with Sarah-cuteness overload!!!

Zantac 75 mgs a day switched to Prevacid 9 mgs. then up to 15 mgs. then down to 11.5 mgs. Zantac did NOTHING to control her acid production but rather than switch her they upped her dosage so she would be fine for a few days and then we were back to the dr office; usually urgent care for uncontrollable screaming. At 75 mgs a day she started to get migraines and pull her hair so we finally switched to Prevacid.

Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
We have done Prevacid/Pepcid combo -- worked well for awhile, then went to Prevacid/Zantac combo -- it also worked well for awhile. Then we switched back to Prevacid/Pepcid combo. We just weaned from the Pepcid at night a few days ago to try and start weaning off meds now that Lauren's 15 months old.
