erythromycin alternative, help!
We have been using erythromycin for several months with good results but now the pharmacy says they can't get it anymore. We're trying EES graules but it's not working and he is back to wretching. Has anyone else had any luck finding erythromycin or a good substitute? something besides reglan?

A compounding pharmacy can compound it for you, try one of the little mutual drug store types.

Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
I asked about that when Zack was on it. They said the manufacturer discontinued one particular type or dosage, but it can be compounded and used as usual. Like Jessica said. Find a pharmacy that's willing to work at it and not just give the generic "they don't make it anymore". They still make the drug! My pharmacy called into the doc and just worked out what they needed to do with what was available!
Check with your
doctor first!
