Any negatives to Zantac?

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
All meds have "warnings and possible side effects" but other than the things that practically all meds warn about, I think zantac is pretty safe.

My dd was on zantac efferdose tabs (same medication as syrup) for 11mths.

Zantac is an h2 blocker and meds like prevacid or prilosec are proton pump inhibitors. The PPIs have more side effects than the h2 blockers, but in many/most cases the PPI is necessary to control the acid. Hope I helped.

Check with your
doctor first!
