Med wean ?
When some of you weaned how long did you wait between cutting out more after the first part of the wean was successful? Now that I cut out the evening prevacid dose I'm trying to figure out how long to let his body adjust. My doc is on maternity leave and I have to see a different one on the 17th and I'm not sure what she'll have to say. So I'm asking the experts first:)

The GI said every other week to reduce the dose. The last time we weaned (it took 3 tries) he did so well that I accelerated the schedule. He was off it in a month.
