Debbie, Mom to:
Derek,10/29/02 GERD,Can't have any legumes(soy, being the worse), allergic to PN/Tree Nuts, struggled to gain weight for years, my "picky" eater,Takes Zegerid. Johnny, 12/05/99 GERD, managed by diet, allergic to cashews/pistachios.
FYI-Penicillin allergy-Don't take Nexium
I FINALLY figured out why my son has kept reacting to the Nexium. He's allergic to Penicillin! You are not supposed to take Nexium if you react with a sensitivity or allergy to Penicillin. He broke out in hives from Amoxicillin and Penicillin when he was little, the Pharmacist noticed it, I just wanted to post it in case anyone runs across it, themselves! My son had off and on diarrhea, rash on his face, cough, wouldn't eat. He's doing well on Prilosec now, and we are trying my older son on the Nexium.

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!
thanks for the post! My lil one is allergic to penicillin, but we never used nexium. It's good for future reference though! You just never know...
Check with your
doctor first!
