Mom to Matthew, 01/16/08, GERD baby, has been on Zantac since 2 mos. Aidan, his twin brother, no GERD. Max-ed out on Zantac at 1ml-3 times/day, and switched to Prevacid 15mg split tab 08/20/08. Switched again to 20mg Prilosec 09/18/08 due to Prevacid's restlessness/headache side effects. Reflux was out of control again and had to switch to 10mg Nexium 02/11/09. Good result so far.
Really need to wait 1hr before meal with Nexium?
We started with 10mg Nexium powder packet 2 days ago. So far, Matthew has been calm and slept better. The instruction says to give it at least 1hr before meal. It's real hard to find a time window that the baby's awake with an empty stomach and wait for 1 hr before feeding. I waited 45min max. For those of you who are using Nexium, do you think it'd make a difference if we wait 1hr Vs 30min before feeding? Thanks a lot for your feedback.
