I have 3 boys, youngest has gerd, 18 months of no sleep. Prevacid 2x/7.5 mg thinking of switching to prilosec.
Hi..Long time but we're back.
Hi Everyone! David (23 mo. on prevacid 7.5mg 2x/dy since 3 mo.) is not out of the woods. But it has quieted alot. We had sloppy joes for dinner(reality check!) and I didn't separate the red sauce for David. We are both up with acid reflux. There's no reasoning with him while he is screaming/half asleep. Then I put Little Bear on TV and he wakes up and quiets down, I got some mylanta in him. I thought I'd check in on you all. I have you in my prayers daily. God bless you all and your GER babies/toddlers.

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
Gotta love those reality checks!!!
