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.
follow-up normal to still need mylanta
Well I talked to the doctor today and she doesn't want me to be using so much mylanta. Says Katie shouldn't need it with the dose of prevacid she is on. She wants me to really watch the diet and pull way back on the mylanta. I guess if Katie still has issues she will want to change the medicine.

Thanks for all your advice on the possibility of it being behavioral/habit for Katie. We shall see what happens

Funny thing I think it is more me that gets that blue bottle out cuz I am so paranoid of tummy aches.

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
I totally understand!!!! Sometimes I give motrin and mylanta just to cover all bases and then I'll give her water and she will suck it down; apparently she was just thirsty! We just don't want them to be in any pain! HUGS! Our GI said no to mylanta period and I told her at one point that not only was I giving it to her but if she (GI) continued to get onto me for it I was sitting in her waiting room with my screaming child until she undrstood how much pain she was in.

This is going to harder than I thought...
Check with your
doctor first!
