Vitamins with iron, and back on Prevacid as of 12/2008
Reaction to vitamins?
We think we have linked Donnie's recent stomach issues back to his new vitamins. He has always been on vitamins because of anemia but this past time we bought OTC vitamins that were supposed to help build the immune system. They had extra vitamin C, Zinc, and echinacea in them. They caused explosive diarrhea, black stool, and terrible stomach pain. He has been off of them for a few days and is back to normal now. Has anyone experienced this?

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!
We gave Katie vitamins for babies who are breastfed and after 2 days I refused to give them to her b/c they caused her to SCREAM all day instead of her constant whinning. Since we live in CA her pedi just said to take her outside for some sunshine.

Macy, mama to Alexia, 2nd child with reflux. Born 4.5 weeks early on Oct. 20th. Showing signs of reflux very first week. Exclusively breastfed, starting elimination diet 11/1.
Hiya, I had 2 b very careful with vitamins too when on the elimination diet as the majority of them have soy. Kirkland makes some that do not have any allergans. They r comparably priced, they make kids and adult ones. Otherwise, even if you call the # listed on the package a lot of them do not know what exactly is in them. Go figure.
Check with your
doctor first!
