My daughter has just been put on Zantac. And, has not gained any weight on Zantac. She used to gain before. Any experience with this type of situation?

well, I haven't haven't heard of it causing weight loss or interfering with weight gain. How much is she on and is she spitting up or vomitting alot? Do her symptoms seem to be relieved at all since she has been on it?

Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
how old is she, some times kids hit a plateau in growth for a little bit. as we all have experienced they eventually get bigger! unless she has problems with weight gain i think i would wait a little longer then a week to acess whether or not weight gain is going to be an issue. Also how was she weighed, clothes on or off? before a meal or after? wet or dry diaper? same scale as last week? those are factors that can play in weight loss and gain in infants. hope this helps.

Mom to Ian, 3/1/07
Used Zantac - 1.0 ml twice a day
Weaned at 1 year
Back on Zantac at 15 months
The only thing I can think of is that we had to be really careful to wait at least 1/2 hour after meds for feedings. Otherwise, it did seem to upset his tummy and affected his appetite.
Check with your
doctor first!
